If this were meteorological fog I would now be a severe weather warning
But joking apart, it is now becoming a bit scary. Other people are noticing which is embarrassing.
We were talking about siblings with friends on Saturday and I said my husband is a twin. "No I'm not but my brother and sister are, " he said gently. But I felt adamant that he was ?? But I said nothing and then remembered!
I am told important things - like a much loved friend has cancer - terrible - and then I forget and see her and she tells me and I am shocked only to be reminded by someone when I get home that I had been told.
I am in a permanent state of muddle and memory loss.
Friends say, "Oh yes I'm just like that!" But this isn't going upstairs and forgetting what you went up for. This feels more sinister; holidays forgotten, route to Sainsbury's (other supermarkets are available - lol) forgotten. I even had to think what my middle name is when I was filling out a form.
I say stupid things like "Do you want that stuff beginning with t (tartare sauce)?" when I was cooking fish. Or I ask for "the round thing you put into the machine for music" (CD).
Such "fogginess" is bewildering; it's like having the rug pulled from under you - totally disorientating.
Please tell me you know what I mean.
I was almost pleased to be told it was APS because I thought I had early dementia.
People are beginning to laugh at my dottiness. I laugh too - but I'm not really laughing inside
