Forgetter Be Forgotten?

> My forgetter's getting better,
> But my rememberer is broke
> To you that may seem funny
> But, to me, that is no joke

> For when I'm 'here' I'm wondering
> If I really should be 'there'
> And, when I try to think it through,
> I haven't got a prayer!
> Oft times I walk into a room,
> Say 'what am I here for?'
> I wrack my brain, but all in vain!
> A zero, is my score.
> At times I put something away
> Where it is safe, but, Gee!
> The person it is safest from
> Is, generally, me!
> When shopping I may see someone,
> Say 'Hi' and have a chat,
> Then, when the person walks away
> I ask myself, 'who the hell was that?
> Yes, my forgetter's getting better
> While my rememberer is broke,
> And it's driving me plumb crazy
> And that isn't any joke.

I have to agree with Shirlene! I do! Somtimes I get in the car and get to the end of the road and have to stop and and think, where was I going? Now, this is someone that only leaves the house to go to the Dr. 2 times a week and to the Pharmacy and the grocery store when necessary. It is a good thing I do not live but 3 minutes from the hospital! My Dr.'s office is in the back of the hospital in another building. If I don't make a list to go to the grocery store, I have nothing that I need when I get home but still spend just as much. But... I never forget anything that my son needs to remember. I have been his memory for all of his life and even when I was drugged to the hilt after the horrible surgery and in the nursing home, I still kept up with all of the things I needed to for my son. He has AADD. I did not talk to him but my best friend that looked after me kept up with all my messages and gave them to Brian. She looked after me and I looked after Brian. I can never remember not having to keep up with everything for Brian. Finally, after all these years, I thought when he got married I would get a reprieve. That did not happen. I have to call Gail and remind her to remind him now! She is too busy looking after her disfunctional family. She has all she can do just to keep all that straight and fix Brian's meds since he had his Heart Attack. It takes 2 of them to fix his few little meds. If I ever get alzheimers(sp?) I have no idea what will happen to him. When I do get out of the house, I think I just relax enough that I try to forget everything. I am like the 3 yr old... I wish I could run away from home! I was responsible for my Mom & Dad and myself as a child and I have been responsible for everything all my life. I am running on over-load! I am 62, tired and hurting all the time and there is no rest. I guess that is what keeps me alive and going. I know I can't stop! I am going to make a copy of this and send it to my friends. I think they will all get a chuckle out of this!

I know what you are saying, been there and done that many times!!! At times I think my forgetter forgot to leave me!! I agree with sewmom, I learned at a class that to combat Alheimers (not spelled right) to do crossword, read, any kind of memory games. (I work in a senior apt. complex. Sara

It is helpful to do things that keep your mind sharp like crossword puzzles or memorizing all the designs you downloaded LOL. Seriously, brain activities are supposed to really work and it certainly can't hurt.
