Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in the
product that I am going to describe to you. I present it only in consumer
interest. It may be something that would be of benefit to those who have
short term memory loss or who know someone with that disability.
I am always looking for new ways to help make my life with
short term memory loss easier and more productive. Two of the most
difficult areas is remembering to eat and to take my medications and
insulin. For those who do not have short term memory loss, it may sound
funny that I forget to eat. After all, wouldn’t my tummy rumble?
Well, it might rumble…I’ve never noticed…just like I don’t notice the house is
a mess…or that my gas tank is getting low…or that I have clothes in the
washer/dryer… I suppose it is due partly to my short attention
span. Sometimes, I do remember to eat, but when I go to the kitchen to f...
I need input from you, my readers; I need your expertise, your background of knowledge, your help. I don’t know how to describe my latest problem. Time management? Organization? Lack of understanding the passage of time? Perhaps, I should just explain using an example.

It never occurred to me to ask him to pick up our granddaughter while he was running errands. He got home about 5:00. Just as he was getting into his “around the house” clothes and making plans for what he was going to start doing, I looked at the clock and was amazed to see it was 5:15. In fifteen minutes, our granddaughter had to be p...
Short term memory loss is one of the indicators of dementia . It is one of the “signs” that one looks for—or doesn’t look for—or worries about…
Science tells us that it is common to forget from time to time where you put your keys, or to turn off a light, or to not remember if you turned off the coffee pot. Forgetfulness can be caused by increasing age, stress, etc. Forgetting names? That, too, can happen as you age. Not until your lack of memory really interferes in your life should you worry.
I’d like to tell you about what it is like to live with very little short term memory. I have touched upon it in past blogs .
This past weekend, my husband and I were out doing errands. We headed into a car wash, a relatively new one for the community. I got all excited. “Oh, good! We’ve never been in this one! Now I can see how this...
