      It is so upsetting when on an everyday basis you are always forgetting things. I know it affects others and I just dont know how to fix it.

        • I think we all live very busy lives these days.  We have all these things that are suppose to make our lives easier....do things quicker...but for some reason we are still in the middle of all the chaos.  Since we live in this our minds really cannot keep up with everything we sign ourselves up to do or our responsibilities.  

          You might have a handful of people who can manage a very busy life but I believe for the most of us it’s something we all struggle with.  I don’t believe you are alone in doing this.  

          I have found that when I write tasks down, put events on my calendar in my IPhone (that I depend on greatly), put alerts on my phone to remind me of tasks or appointments that I am function a lot better.  I’m still not saying that I have all perfect now and that I never forget things because I do.....but I try to do these things AND I try really hard to not over obligate myself to things and people.  I have learned to say “NO“...and even at work when asked to do things.  

          When you start to get lost in areas where you should be familiar or you don’t know who loved ones are...then you have a problem.  

          Just try to slow down...and develop a system to keep up with the stuff.  It does take time.

        • And I will also add....get plenty of sleep and exercise!! Those two things alone make a huge difference in our brains.

        • One thing that comes to mind for those of us in this age bracket, the onset of perimenopause can have an effect on our memory. Don’t know where you are in all of that but, it’s a thoughtestatic
