Really struggling with my memory again. I have put a notebook on my kitchen table with what the day is in capital letters (thought Tuesday was Wednesday last week and took the wrong dose of warfarin) and any things I have to do each day. Have got some medical appointments coming up which needs at least three phone calls. But am trying to do one per day. Given up trying to read difficult books (reading is and always has been the mainstay of my life) and record most things I want to watch so I can rewind if I need to.
I went through this 13yrs ago when something happened during an anasethetic and so am having another brain scan and an assessment of my cognitive skills. I am using some of the strategies I did then and trying to keep life as simple as I can to stop my brain whirling around trying to make sense of everything. but it is so exhausting and frustrating.
