I Think I'm Getting Dumber Everyday

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 107 People

    Yeah, honestly. I'll walk into a class to tell

    the girls to go out for break but I'll end up telling them to go somewhere else. I can't seem to understand subjects that I could understand perfectly well a couple of months ago. I can't remember anything during tests and my grades are worsening with each term. My teachers keep...

    Or...

    ...Im just realizing how little I actually know. All the things that where such a big deal to me 10 years ago, 10 months ago, 10 weeks, days, hours...all seem a lot less important than what is happening now.

    I feel like I'm losing my mind.

    In All Seriousness, I Think I'm Getting Dumber Over The Years.

    Looking back on things I've written on social networking site like Facebook and MySpace shows what appears to be a significant decline in my mental functioning. I used to be capable of witty quips and puns that would take me hours to come up with now. It makes me really sad...

    Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

    I'd like to think so but apparently not because I've been having trouble trying to help my daughter ( who is in 5th grade) with her homework. It amazes me how much I have forgotten since I've been out of school. I can't believe I am losing my intelligence! I wonder if other...
