Losing It — 8 Comments

  1. I am stopping by from blogvillage. I am so sorry to hear you are having such a bad time. Sometimes under a great deal of stress I become really forgetful, misplace things, get overwhelmed etc. It is so frustrating and makes me feel so helpless. I hope once you get over the hump and life starts to settle down you are able to feel more in control. I love your blog, it is lovely that you are documenting your journey.

  2. I have had bouts of stress induced memory loss for years, but something about this time is different. Sometimes I can tell that the information is in there somewhere, but there are also times when I know immediately that it is just gone. Those are the ones that have me worried. I do appreciate your kind words of concern, Marsha.

  3. I really appreciate your prayers, Marion. I’ve never been one to pray for miracles, but I do believe that prayer makes any situation easier to deal with.

  4. Are you sure you are not worrying more over this than you should? Or, maybe I should be worrying more, because I do the same thing and I don’t think I have Parkinson’s. What with all the stress you have had, it’s no wonder to me that that could be playing a factor. With our move, I’ve misplaced so many things and hate the chaos our paperwork is in right now. I hope it gets better.

  5. There is something different going on, Shelia, but whether it’s the Parkinson’s, age, or insomnia causing it – that’s another matter. Would you forget in less than two days what you did with a five figure check, to the point that you couldn’t even remember if it was in an envelope or loose? Just nothing – totally blank.

    I’m not so much worrying as getting depressed over it. I’m kind of like Joe. I have lived my life as a very organized and methodical person, with a very high IQ, and it’s just not there any more. I haven’t learned to accept the change yet, and hopefully, if it’s insomnia or medicine causing it, I won’t have to.

  6. I’m sorry. I guess I just want to find an explanation that isn’t what you fear. Who wouldn’t be depressed.
