Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Memory sucks


I know I have joked aroung a lot about my memory, calling myself memory guy and what not. Most of the time,  well almost all of the time, your memory is of not concern at all. You just blissfully carry on with your day, your life. You just have no idea of what you have forgotten, well because you have forgotten it. Every once in a while though something comes up and you realize just how bad your memory has become. Just such and issue has arrisen, and I extend a big thank you to Andrew over at my good old Royal Bank for his assistance.

Times like this make me sort of take stock of where I am in general with all of this memory stuff. My memory is getting worse there is no  question about that. It is disturbing really when I stop and think about how much worse.

Thank goodness for Vi being here to remind me. I have reached the point where I am forgetting to take my medications. With my heart that is not a good thing, not that it is a good thing at any time. More and more she is having to prompt me,remind me about them. Thank you Vi.

Now anyone that knows me, knows I am to short for my weight. OK, I am carrying a “few” extra pounds. Now for me to say I am forgetting to eat will just cause many to stop and scratch their heads in wonder. Now I have to explain that, it is actually meals I am forgetting. When Vi is not here,  it can be into the evening even say around 9:00pm before I realize I am hungry and have been snacking on what ever is around. Often I realize then I had forgotten to eat “dinner/supper” what ever you wish to call it. Who wants to start cooking at that time, so I snack on. May explain a little about these extra pounds.

An example. In this post I wanted to say thank you to Andrew as I did above. Well I wrote down his name and have it upstairs. I even checked it to be sure before I came to the basement here to type. By the time I had gotten signed on to the computer, I had already forgotten and had to run back to check. Geesh.

Family teases me. If you ever have a secret you are just burning to tell someone. Well tell Bill, he will have forgotten it in a hour or so anyway. I think I may have been told secrets, just can’t remember.

Ah well, not sense worrying about it, not worth the effort.In an hour or so I will have forgotten anyway so what is the point. Now that is the upside to a bad memory

    Dear Bill,
    Just got back from a weekend in beautiful Red Deer, Alberta!! Wow…what a beautiful province. Anyways, I sure hope Vi is taking care of herself and that you are too. I haven’t been able to catch up on the missed posts, but I’ll be computer busy tonight. and don’t worry about the memory thing. I figure if the most important thing is to be happy in your head. If you forget stuff, who cares? Hopefully we all will forget the bad stuff and just have memories of the good stuff.
    Great to be back in Manitoba (snow and all). Praying for you and Vi always, Wiseman.

    Sticky notes–no surprise that I get gifted sticky notes on a regular basis.
    *sigh*

    It’s a good thing, I’d suppose–but then I lose the sticky notes.
    *laughing*

    I hope for some divine intervention in helping me remember what’s really required–so far that’s been working. But I agree with ‘it’s the happy thoughts’ you’re retaining….so it ain’t all bad, eh?

    How’s Vi since the appt?

    See, it is not such a bad thing… Infact, some of us think being forgetful is G R E A T 🙂

  4. Hey, i know how its to suffer from a problem like this. I have been struggling from it since a few months with the usual ups and downs so i really know its not fun when you have a true problem like this. At a website i found out some visitors were really satisfied about a remedie they got from the internet and i also ordered it when i found those pills at – herbalhealingstore dot com -. So believe me, those herbals do work, you just have to find the good ones!
