Random thoughts for a random time

I remember I forget

The memory isn't always set

I forget that I forgot what I remember

What I do not

I remember a day which one i don't always know

I forget where I went but not where I should go

I think I know the face before my eyes

Looks different somedays, the mirror holds that surprise

I know how to do things and at times nothing at all

I remember the details but not after the fall

I shake awake a nuclei or too

Introduce it to the day, remind it what to do

Walk talk, clear smile and be sincere

At first I was disconnecting and often close to rejecting those I held so dear

I forgot to remember the forgotten and the true

But I know there would be less of me if it wasn't for all of you

  • Really well said just how I feel and a lot of people with Hughes syndrome, it's on the health unlocked site too would you mind if I copied it and posted on there that's unless you want to

  • Hi daisyd

    If you think it has a place then of course you can put a copy on there ;-) thanks for asking..

  • Thank you, I have put it on there, I am sure you will get replies on here.

    The Memory problems we have with Hughes syndrome are awful, so embarrassing. It is caused by the sticky blood. I had a brain that felt full of fog, unfortunately my neurologist didn't test me for it

    Now on anticoagulant Warfarin the fog has lifted. My brain is now like a jigsaw with bits missing, words often come out back to front.

    The epilepsy luckily is controlled with Lamotrigine, feel really sorry for people who have to cope with that as well

    Thank you xx

  • Hi, you very welcome. It's nice to know something so simple as a few words can help others connect and feel a sense of togetherness x

  • It certainly does and helps others to relate to one another... Have a lovely day... Speak soon!

  • Thank you for permission to put this on the Hughes syndrome site on

    Healthunlocked just thought I would tell you 8 people say they can really relate to this and think it is brilliant, one person is asking if you are in a writing group.

    Thanks again


  • Thank you so much for your words. I write as a way of focusing my random thoughts. Sometimes it co-agulates (if you forgive the use of the word) into something satisfying. I'm not part of a writing group at all, never have been. I basically just write how I feel and feel the words I write xx
