    Sorry

    Sorry to anyone I forget to reply to and sorry to anyone who knows my name and I don't know theirs. I can memorize quickly for school, but honestly, I have a bad memory.

    I have such bad memory.

    I honesty can't recall any events from yesterday, without retracing everything I did. It's funny because I remember things like when an assignment is due and such easily. But everything else is a blur and takes a such a long time to remember

    So my mom just told me this story about a trip we took to a friends lake house. You see, the lake house is on a hill so there are a few flights of stairs that lead down to the floating boat dock. Well, on our way down to the boat one day my little sister was way ahead of us and...

    Went To School In My Bed Comforter

    So, the other day I was hanging out with some old friends when one of them tells this story. According to him, sometime during senior year I showed up at his house to pick him up for school wrapped up in my comforter and bedsheets. It would seem that I was late as usual and...

    My memory is awful. It has always been so,

    probably due to depression related to my Crohn's which I've had for 14 years. It's really bad when trying to remember things I heard or spoke. I need to read/write things to remember them well. It's especially frustrating when you feel like people assume you're lazy or whatever...

    or not. So I'll take it. Then I convince myself I've taken two in one day. And panic all night. Hope nothing will happen to me...

    I'm really tired of hammering this into my

    parents' heads. I don't remember things well. I'm not just not doing things, I haven't forgotten these things because they're not important to me and I'm not trying to make your life more difficult by not remembering things. It affects me too. I'm not just sitting here thinking...

    It's Very Difficult For Me To Memorize Anything!!!!!

    Well my memory is selective at the least. I can remember small details about people's life. People are always surprised at how much I remember about what they tell me. And I can remember grievances forever. But ask me to memorize a sonnet and it take a lot of effort. The...

    I really do have a bad memory.

    I mean honestly I can't even remember most of my childhood. Sometimes I sit here and try to remember, and I can't, and sometimes I wonder why that is. But even in my everyday life I forget a lot. I remember the necessary things and a lot of totally useless things, but most is...

    I have memory problems.

    I'm not sure when it began but the last five years I can remember. But my childhood is a complete blank except for bits and peices. I remember an outline of what my childhood was but there are years I don't remember anything. Maybe it has something to do with the incident that...

    I can't remember anything anymore.

    It's like I have a TBI or something. It used to be just little things, but now I can't even remember concepts, or why certain things have happened.

    The more days that pass the more my memory

    begins to fade and my current life changes. If I can't remember the good times and bad times. What is the point of doing them in the first place? By the way, before I forget. Don't give me sympathy. And understand if I accidentally forget you.

    For the most important things.

    I'll remember little things like license plates, what I threw in the trash, the exact position of my shoes, where those socks are, what I had for dinner a month a go, what someone was wearing a few days a go, how all my papers are arranged, the exact time I quit watching a...

    Poor Recall

    One of the things that I hate most about myself is that I can never remember important things. I remember very little, bits and pieces specifically, from what I learned throughout school. I don't remember facts very well at all and I find myself having to refresh my memory by...
