    Really Really Really Forgetful. Like Dory From "Nemo" Forgetful.

    It is ridiculous how forgetful I am. Really. I can be in the middle of clearing the table with my hands full of plates and I will space out for a second and have to ask myself "what am I doing right now?". Then I remember, think "oh yeah" and get back to it. Asking myself "What...

    I feel it's probably

    for the best, because at the end of the day, many don't remember what you remember and say to them to make them feel awesome or special. It's important to remember the moments that move your heart. I don't really have words to explain myself so....

    I'm sorry, what was the question? I forget things all the time. They don't usually completely go away, because they are there, I just have to have a trigger, and there is no telling what the trigger will be. If it involves numbers, you can pretty much forget me ever...

    Thank You, Rsd!

    I used to remember EVERY thing.  I forgot nothing.  I could quickly walk through a room and tell you months later exactly where to find something in it.  I didn't have to write lists, I just remembered.  It was more like a nagging than remembering...

    A curse or a gift. It's more of the former

    but it has it's times. God above, I'm surely thankful I don't remember every detail of every bad thing I've experience in my life. But most definitely this is not a most welcome attribute specially when I find myself scratching head looking through my purse for the keys to my...

    This Is Deffo Me!

    I have noticed within the past year (I would say) that I am definitely a lot more forgetful than I used to be. I work in a salon and I forget client's names (let alone remembering anything about them!!) on a regular basis. What makes it worse is that the other girls I work with...

    I did not put my keys and wallet where they belong. I got up this morning and could not find either. I searched the entire condo but to no avail. I called my bank, DMV, and others to inform them I lost my wallet. As soon as I finished all my phone calls I saw something...

    I want to remember what I've forgotten.

    All of those lost memories and thoughts, I want them back. I feel as if I'm losing myself. I fear the day that I wake up and no longer even know who I am. I want to remember before I forget.

    Any one has any tips to combat this?

    Compared to majority, my memory is poor. They recall more details than I do. My poor memory maybe related to stress

    Not in the sense of memory.

    More among people. I tend to remember pretty well. Faces, names, stories. People are intriguing. But, I don't necessarily feel like I am remembered in the same way. I admit, I'm a pretty simple guy. But being forgotten isn't very uplifting.

    Always Have Been

    Growing up, my mother would always kind of pick on me about how forgetful I am. Many mornings before I left for school or whatever, she would run through a list of things with me that I was prone to forgetting, like my lunch or book bag, etc. She was always very sweet about it...

    I have always been forgetful.  I think I'm part crow (bird, not tribe); I'm easily distracted by shiny objects. Although I started getting high at 15 and still do, that didn't make my forgetfulness a lot worse, although I did learn not to work high (different story, working...

    Often, when I browse through my page,

    I'd fail to recall when I joined a particular group here in EP. I'd speculate that someone might have hacked into my account , I still do. I wonder if it were really forgetfulness on my part, or was it something else.

    Bain of my life, I often feel really stupid

    when I forget things and I'm vague a lot of the time about the past. I feel like I've lived so many lifetimes already with all I've seen and done and there not enough room in my head to remember it all :(

    Bring My Mind to Reality

    Being forgetful is a huge part of my life.  It has helped me and hurt me.  It never fails though.  Since I was younger, I've always been very forgetful -- leaving things at school, people's house, anywhere.  Now, it's still the same.  The weird thing is...
