How is your memory.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

the past few years ive seen a noticeable change in my brain functioning due to the effects of CTE (dementia pugilistica) from boxing/kickboxing, one of the effects is memory loss, probably the most annoying/frustrating is having to constantly write reminders in my phone now if i need to do/remember something, because if i dont, ill end up forgetting
another thing that ive noticed thats started happening a lot more recently is forgetting people, whether it be people coming up to me who i feel ive never met before, but they know me, or sometimes i bump into people that i recognise/feel like i know, but no idea where from, and im left with that horrible de ja vu feeling trying to rack my brain to little effect

i think i find it more frustrating because i used to pride myself of having a 'memory like an elephant' but now i cant trust myself at all, and the worst thing is im only 31!! :BangHead:

I suddenly remembered the name of my school teacher, Braun Junkers, that in 1962 , when I had only turned 15, said to me ,,, You have a learning disability and it's best you don't come back to school next term. Teachers know all the answers, so I followed his advice.

Lol for reals?!

the things u have forgotten were not worth remembering;

I love my memory,
can watch the same movie every year an not know the outcome
read the same book
have the same conversations with my friends
ahhh

what was the thread about??

Rope-a-dope ;-)
The rope-a-dope is performed by a boxer assuming a protected stance (in Ali's classic pose, lying against the ropes, which allows much of the punch's energy to be absorbed by the ropes' elasticity rather than the boxer's body). The boxer keeps his or her guard up and is prepared for the incoming blows while looking for opportunities to counter punch his or her opponent, who by mounting an offensive may have left himself or herself open to counters. By being in a defensive posture and being prepared for the incoming blows, the boxer decreases his or her chances of being caught with a clean flush blow, as ideally a significant portion of the punches will land on the boxer's hands and arms, or will miss completely as a result of the boxer slipping the punch. Additionally, if the opponent lacks stamina, his or her power will decrease throughout the fight as he or she loses energy, and essentially "wastes" many punches into the boxer's guard.

However, a boxer employing this tactic must have a great chin and great ability to withstand punishment to be able to withstand the punches that do get through the boxer's defenses and land. Offensively, the boxer employing this tactic will look to exploit mistakes made in his or her opponent's attack by countering if the opponent has left himself or herself open. He or she will also look to mount short bursts of offensive attacks in between his or her opponent's attack, being sure to immediately get back in their defensive posture as to not leave himself or herself open to a counter attack. Despite the name, the boxer does not have to be against the ropes in order to rope-a-dope the opponent.

Highlights of an old amateur fight where i use the above rope-a-dope tactics, i was ranked #1 at Super-lightweight and stepped up to fight #2 at Welterweight, twas a fun fight

Not great. And lately, I am doing a degree program, and find a lot of the testing is a test of my memory, which I struggle with now mid 50's age.

My kids will remind me of things, and I don't remember, and sometimes, they will tell me that I already watched a certain movie with them and I have no recollection of that.

I learn new things every day, because I forget more than I learn these days.

Meh.

What about the other 20 odd birthdays you have forgotten?

My long term memory is almost perfect. I remember back to the age of 18 months, all of my school chums etc. It's the short term that I have trouble with. Start to do something, get distracted and then cannot remember what it was I was about to do.

There again, I can blame my medication for all of that.

Found this from the University of California, Berkeley.

"The short-term memory problems that accompany normal agingare associated with an inability to filter out surroundingdistractions, not problems with focusing attention, according to astudy by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.

Point one. This is staying the bleeding obvious.
Point two. Shame the reporter could not punctuate and spell correctly....Doh :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:

Never been a linguist. The side of the brain that specialises in this is missing in me.

I can get by in many languages (German, French, Spanish, Thai and Cantonese) but only in a colloquial conversation. No clue about the grammar or correct conjugation of verbs let alone the nine or so intonations in Cantonese. I am told by my French friends that I should be charged with murdering the French language. I take that as a compliment.
