    I'm So Sick Of Having Such A Terrible Memory

    I've never been good at remembering things. Never. I can't remember birthdays. I can't remember names or dates. I can't remember what I'm supposed to do for the day. I can hardly remember ANYTHING. I get so sick of it all the time, because it happens to me all the time. I'll be...

    I Miss You Memory

     I've always had a bad memory. When I was younger I could never remember where I last placed things. It was as if someone moved the item from where I last placed. I have always had this problem, except now that I'm older and I take anxiety pills, it has gotten better. But...

    I Had a Terrible Memory.

    At least, compared to my memory now, my memory used to be atrocious! I couldn't remember someone's name until I had already forgotten it 4 or 5 times. But you can improve your memory, drastically! I did! Now, I'm memorizing textbooks. I can tell you the information, in order...

    My memory is shocking,

    until it comes to song lyrics! I can hear a song once and know all the words! Or can not have heard a song for years and only vaguely remember it but can then surprise myself by singing all the words! Weird, clever brain!

    I have started forgetting details of various

    events and when I recall them, they aren't there any more but every so often I'll see something in my head that I'd forgotten like a snapshot of an incident

    I'm afraid that when I get old all my memories

    are going to be gone. Like the movie, The Notebook, except I'm not going to have a cool life story or anyone to read to me. My memory is so bad that there whole vacations when I was younger (in my late twenties) that I don't remember. I don't remember my school years, most of...
