Memory Gaps.

I woke up with a panic attack this morning.

I remembered my term life insurance premium was due earlier this month and I had completely forgotten about it. I know there usually is a fifteen day grace period but I wasn’t sure that was up yet. I hurriedly sent a text message to my agent (who happens to be a good friend and the mother of my god daughter!) and asked for her advice. She replied: Dear, don’t you remember you completed the last payment already?

Whew! What a relief. My memory has gotten so bad lately and this is just another in a long string of little errors I’ve made. Take for example this afternoon. I went to the grocery and got ready to card my bill. The cashier promptly hands me back my card and says “Ma’am, your card is expired”. This after the credit card company sent me the replacement card weeks ago. Genius! Oh, and have I mentioned that I keep forgetting my login passwords for my accounts??? Gah! Memory gaps are getting so bad.

The worse lapse in memory I’ve noticed, however, is how I can no longer remember my students names easily. There are times the entire term passes by and I still have not memorized their names. To be fair, I know them by face, which is why having seat plans and index cards with their pictures is very important for me.

The decline in my memory kind of freaks me out since we have a family history of Alzheimers. I think though my poor memory is more a function of the fact I have too many different jobs so I tax my resources too much. Nonetheless, I wish I could do something more concrete to help myself out. Any suggestions?

    hmmm.. siguro dahil yun sa marami kang iniisip? kaya nakakalimutan mo ng ang iba mong gawain?

    Don’t worry sis you’re not alone. I’m also like that. I always write down the things that I would do the next day so as not to forget them, even the smallest errands.
