I've Been Places And Done Thing But I Don't Know Specifics

I've Been Places And Done Thing But I Don't Know Specifics

I can remember events that I have been to or been part of but I do not remember things that happened while I was there just that I was there. I pretend like I remember what happened when talking to my friends and family does anybody else have this problem

My biggest problem is that I meet people who I should know they are asking questions about me& my seizures, rest of my life. I just feel stupid for not remembering who they are so I just want them to think that I do & I pretend that I do.

I do have similar issues. There have been times when we would rent movies 🎥 . Later down the road , we would rent movies again and the movie I want to rent is a movie we already seen sometime back . Sometimes it would turn into a Dumb argument , because I don’t remember seeing it.

When it comes to going places , and doing big events and activities , I’m good at remembering most of the stuff we did. The trouble I have is remembering how long ago it was when we went. If it’s a place that we have gone more than once to , like Wisconsin Dells resorts , Wisconsin USA . I would struggle remembering , which activity was from which trip. They will all collide together and I’m trying remember which trip it was.

Yeh We regularly go to see plays & concerts. sometimes I remember going if I'm having a spaced out day ,but can't concentrate properly It's very annoying especially as my husband remembers all the details He always says he doesn't know why he takes me.
