Where Has My Memory Gone?

Back years ago, before I became ill, I could remember everything.   My family called me a “walking telephone book” because I could hear someone’s phone number one time and it would be forever locked in my memory.    Now I’m lucky if I can remember my OWN telephone number!

Not only has my short-term memory been affected dramatically by the CFS and Fibromyalgia but my long-term memory is shot as well.

I can’t remember details about trips my husband and I have taken and other details of outings, trips, etc. that I have done with other family members.

My family will be like, “Do you remember when………?”   And I am always saying, “No, I don’t remember that.   What did I say?  What did I do?”

I need to research some memory tricks to help improve my memory and maybe even restore some of what I’ve lost.
