    Does anyone else fear losing memory, or more of their memory because of the fibro?

    Lately, I find myself panicked when I think about all the PIN codes and account numbers I am remembering in my head. Then I start to panic that I won't remember where I put my safety deposit box key ( or where my box actually is!), or my good watch that I wore 2 months ago.

    I am avoiding grocery shopping because I fear getting to the checkout and I can't remember my PIN. This actually happened.(thank goodness for Grocery delivery companies!)

    I haven't started panicking about it yet, but I'm only 28, and my memory just seems to be horrible. If I make it to my 50s or 60s I'm afraid I'm definitely going to be senile and unable to do normal work.

    I attribute some of this to the pot smoking I did off/on for 9 years, but I've quit for good now for almost a year, and would think my brain might start to repair itself, but so far, just getting worse.
