These are things that scare me.Yesterday I could not remember whether or not the queen mother had died.My husband reassured me that she had ,quite a while ago,but I didn't quite believe him!Now,I feel absolutely bonkers because I can't believe I couldn't remember that yesterday.Does anyone else get that?i feel so stupid!

Haha, that's actually very funny because I had exactly the same problem last week. My hubby thought she was still alive (but he's Belgian and doesn't speak a word of English, so we'll forgive his lack of knowledge) and I said that she died quite a while ago. But, as soon as I'd said it, I thought - did she? I suddenly didn't have a clue :rotfl:

So in short, yes, I get that and a whole lot more. I am constantly having to ask people for the same info twice or three times over and I can't remember loads of things which I knew inside out. Thankfully I can usually hide my forgetfulness (at least in my work) thanks to the net. I often have to look up things that I knew but have forgotten.

I get that when i've done to much and am tired.

I forgot what year in college my daughter was in,,, she's in the U.S., her sophomore year and i thought she was a freshman. The yaer is almost over so its not like it just started and i was still in freshman year.

Its embarressing. But that is what happens.

Again!! Wow, that's another thing. I forget what years my kids are in too but it's really shameful as they are 10 and 8 and live with me most of the time!!!

It's comforting to know I am not the only one... I quite often can't remember saying something to someone and end up telling them twice. Funny thing is I might only have told them 10 mins ago DOH:lol:

I must admit though it is worse when I'm tired!

I always forget how old I am, always have to count five backwards to figure out how old my sister is, and two forward for my brother. I once forgot in front of everyone in the lobby what apartment I lived in, 5, my neighbor cruel he is had me convinced I lived in apartment 7.:blush: I always have to call and see when someone is coming to get me, what time an appointment is, I must look up, set the alarm even in the afternoon, and forget about knowing what show comes on when on tv, especially since I can no longer rely on the tv guide on channel 23, the new cable company took that channel out of my package--I think I will never see my favorite shows again, if I have to rely on memory.:worried: Karly

Don't even ask me how old my cousins are that's hopeless.......
