    "Making Progress In Memory Battle"

     When I first noticed that 'poor memory' was a problem, at all, I started on my 'lists campaign'. A lot went into that. I made lists to remember major upcoming events and needs; lists to deal with the tiniest mundane details, and lists for many things, in-between.  ...

    Brain Injury

    After a bicycle accident 2 years ago I lost my sense of smell, some of my taste sensing ability, and have short-term memory issues.  I already have a weak long-term memory so life has been kinda weird since the accident.

    Trip To See Neurologist

    I went to see a neurologist in Edmonton Alberta on Tuesday to find out if he could tell me anything about why I am losing my memory. It was a very painful trip there and back, but it was worth it because I got to see my oldest son Zachary. The Doctor said that because I have...

    I don't know if it's years of on and off meds or stress or just that I've managed to block out so much but my memory is so fried. Not so much the long term as is the short. I write everything down or else I forget. Thank goodness for Outlook or I'd be lost.
