Achievements Software

As I get older and the worse my memory gets as a result of my epilepsy and medication I have realized I am forgetting the things I have achieved. Because of this I have bought an Achievements Journal from Amazon which can help me record things. So when I am depressed I can read it and it picks me up. My question is does anyone know of any software or apps that does something similar?

I journal so I can have something to look back to with my memory. I can't write everything down but it's better than nothing. When I came home from the hospital my mind switched. I had a hard time remembering my past but when I got home memories started coming back, but I can't remember where basic things in the house were or what some basic items were.

I'm not savvy with IT so it would all have to be written down We go to see plays a lot ,my husband recalls most of the details but I can't concentrate during the plays& remember nothing about the plots.Someone said ' when you retire you should write an autobiography' I'm 62 & my long term memory is so good - like most of us my short term is poor ,that might be a good way to remember my achievements.

Well, sorry for being happy to have found people with Memory problems. No one believes me. 1 thing you should do is, write everything down. I got a Doctor who referred me to a counselor. They did some tests and gave me advice. 1) Buy a 'Week at a Glance Organizer' I write down everything as fast as possible. When I have a Doctor's appointment I highlight it with a specific color, depending on which Doctor. 2) This was when I started College so, also recorded classes. Now that Tablets are around it's better than Laptops. 3) I read somewhere that playing 'Word Games' is good so, I do some every night. I do try Jeopardy but I'm not great. Only 1 answer for the whole game makes me feel smart. 4) When going to sleep and waking, I give myself a test. What's today's date? What did I do yesterday? What do I have to do tomorrow? The thing with that one is that Now, November, I know it's 2019. Before I couldn't get the year at any time. 5) You can try making up a song or something crazy to remember things. They say, the crazier the easier it is. Keep a backup of all your written things. You know you can misplace them and depending on how important it is the better. Have a separate email account for Medical things. Plus, I need to have all my email addresses and passwords because I also forget them. Good Luck

I have an idea for You, when I was in college I keep losing my wallet and keys all time. So to stop that from happening I decided there was only going to be one place I always put my keys and wallet all the time. It was a place where they could always be seen. When ever I came into that room I put those things down right away in the same place all the time. So when I needed them I knew they would be there. After doing that so many times I never forget to put my things there. I still do that today, I have a terrible memory but don't forget where I put those things. Good Luck!

Hello Darryl, I don't use anything (which I should start) to write things down but I looked up a few things. Check out Memories app, I use Android and if you have an Apple I hope they have it also. I'm going to start using it. Have a great day.
