Does Anyone Else Suffer From Memory Loss Be It Short Or Long Term ?

Does Anyone Else Suffer From Memory Loss Be It Short Or Long Term ?

It tends to affect most of my personal life. It's quite embarrassing at times, working with a colleague for 3 years and all of a sudden you can't remember something like names. Going to your boss to ask or tell them or tell them something and just stand there because you don't remember. It's frustrating not to mention annoying.

Again, your meds can cause some extreme side affects even memory loss. Talk to your doctor. Depakote is the worst!

My seizures are in my memory area of my brain so my memory is bad most the time. I stop driving if you years back because of my seizures but now are use Uber and love it and they know how to get everywhere so I don't have to worry about it because I can never remember how to get places. I forget things all the time and how to do things sometimes so I have to write it down I'm terrible with passwords and that kind of stuff but I have good friends and lots of paper and passwords could be changed so things could be worse hey Jeff give your truck a hug for me. Have a great day

My doctor and wife insisted I no longer drive. My wife TOOK my license, and my keys. I just look at my truck and hug it once in a while.
