Did you ever watch Tom Hanks play "Mr. Short Term Memory Man" on Saturday Night Live... it is older sketch, late 1980's. He had like a 10 second memory. I feel like this lately, although, my short term memory has improved since suffering the strokes, but I am driving myself and other nuts!
So many tell me, "It happens to me all the time." or "It comes with age."... I know all of these folks are being kind, but this happened to them slowly, not all at once.
I am getting better by writing everything down. Post Its are a God-send, they can be stuck anywhere! I also highlight my work calendar all over the place! I have also learned to write in pencils, I am not a pencil fan, being left handed.... Lefties tend to smear pencil, but pencil erases all my many mistakes.
I will get everything in place, just before I finally lose my memory due to older age! (giggle!)
