    Does anyone else here have memory problems? I'm only 41 and since I was diagnosed, my memory has gotten horrible. In fact, my friends and family sometimes think I don't really listen to what they are saying because I forget what they say from one phone call to the next, etc.

    I'm thinking of starting a binder to leave next to the phone. Everytime I talk to someone, jot down some notes, so the next time they call, I have something to refer to and don't sound like an idiot or that I don't care.

    Any thoughts?

    I have had this problem for yrs. At first i thought i was really losing it!
    I can start to talk and forget what i said mid sentence.
    Good idea with the note pad next to the phone.
    I carry a small calendar with me,and i have one in the kitchen to write down my appt.,if i didn't i would be lost.
    I am lucky enough that my family understands how forgetful i am.
    Hugs, Robin

    i have terrible memory problems. i have sticky notes all over the place at work so i don't forget things. i also let my husband take care of the bills, because i can't and don't want to handle that responsibility!
