|Easily Distracted and a Poor Memory; I Would Never Survive a Maze|
I had this one lady who was so upset by me repeating everything and my memory problems that she stuck her hand in my face, did that little head bob thing people do when they're angry or they think you're an idiot, and then repeated it all again like I was some idiot. I really didn't appreciate that. And it wasn't like I was taking forever to get her the food she ordered.
And there I go, getting distracted again. Anyways... I have been easily distracted since I was little, but never have I had a bad memory. Some of my nicknames have been encyclopedia, dictionary, and radio. I remember everything and I can pull random facts out of thin air. So this horrible memory thing has been pretty frustrating. I can't remember the words I want to use, and often times I can't even remember what I was saying halfway through a sentence. Is it just me? Am I starting to get lazy and I'm just not paying attention like I used to? Is this the Lupus Fog I'm always hearing about?
There's a part of me that would really like to talk to my doctor and say "Hey, my brain isn't working the way it used to", but at the same time, I sort of feel like a hypochondriac. Is it all in my imagination?
