My short term memory is deteriorating. At first it was just momentary lapses, the M.E brain fog. Other times it was natural born dizziness.
It’s getting worse.
I forget to turn the oven off.
I forget to turn the tumble drier on.
Even when constantly repeating something over and over in my mind, such as the next thing I want to do/read/google/say, it still evades my memory. I feel stupid and distressed.
I scrunch my eyes up tight hissing at everyone to shut up whilst I try so hard to remember. My teeth grit in concentration.
It’s like it’s been literally removed from my mind.
Yet it leaves a hole.
So I know something was there.
I just can’t remember what the something was.
I used to have an awesome memory.
I’m also finding it incredibly difficult to concentrate. I have to exert all my attention to concentrate on even small things.
I used to be a total multitasker.
Maybe it’s the meds.
I just don’t know.
