How is your memory.

Post by Duncan » Thu Mar 14, 2019 12:25 pm

I have always had a bad memory, even when I went to school it was bad. But I am sometimes surprised that now approaching 72 years of age I can remember some things that happened 50 plus years ago.
It was only last night that 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.

I guess this has happened to you ,,, parked your car and forgot exactly where ? Well I found mine , or should I say the police found mine after I had reported it stolen.
Remember that good friend of yours called,,,,,,, Mate. Well I have many friends ,,all called ''Mate ''

Sometimes my memory is so good I wish I could forget everything in my life.

Sometimes very good, sometimes very bad. An example: If I lend money to someone, I will never forget it, but if I owe someone money, I always forget it. :D
Everything that does not bother me is not my problem. :beer3:

Don't be too sure. Maybe he thought it was the space bar.

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'm 70+ and my memory is generally good, but I notice that it is getting less.
The problem is at my age, you have to much to remember. :D
