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...
After seven years of advocating about the importance of early diagnosis of any type of dementia (Alzheimer's is one type), I would have to say that denial is still the biggest factor in preventing early diagnosis and treatment. Even my own friends, who have endured my harping for years about getting their parent(s) evaluated at the first signs of short-term memory loss, seem to procrastinate and wait until a crisis occurs. I couldn't understand how denial could be so prevalent and why anyone would want to wait, especially since there are four medications that help slow down/mask symptoms, buying precious time for independence and time for medical science to come up with better meds or a cure. But then I understood it, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. As I endured six months of dense-dose chemotherapy, I started to experience my own intermittent short-term memory loss, commonly known as "chemo brain". It was so scary, especially the time I...
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...
