This says it all!

I wanted to share a comment made by my wife that she said to me yesterday.

After pointing out that I had already given notice to cancel my mobile phone contract and that I should have remembered, she said in a disgruntled manner"Paul, you really need to do something about your memory"

I was incredulous to say the least.

Now in my wife's defence she doesn't always articulate herself in a way she means but I made it clear how insulting the comment was.

Yep and I should walk properly too !

Sometimes even those closest to us can drop a clanger and say something without thinking, only realising later that is was totally inappropriate. I have had similar occasions with my partner over cognitive stuff I simply wasn't 'getting' and have let him know how hurtful it feels to be chastised for something you cannot help. Hopefully this will blow over and not be repeated.

I guess nobody's perfect !

Take care, Angela x


Memory loss is a common factor and it is medical fact that will happen.

Please check out my video blog that explains the effect on freinds and family and also what happens during recovery.
