I often find myself saying I have cognitive dysfunction due to my neurological condition when I forget something or get mixed up, I say it in a joking way and people generally laugh/smile with me. This problem was brought home to me yesterday when I had a visitor I haven’t seen since before Christmas.
Since I took my Christmas decorations down I have had a vague feeling of something being missing but haven’t dwelt on it and the thought left my head as quick as it entered. When my friend came yesterday one of the first thing she said was “where are your ornaments” as I was responding “what ornaments” I remembered my small collection of Willow Tree figures, I knew instantly where I had put them for safe keeping. It is almost three weeks since I took my decs down I’m wondering how long it would have taken me to remember what was missing from my fires mantelpiece.
In my defence I have only had these ornament around two years, perhaps if I’d had them for twenty years I wouldnt have forgotten them at all.
I’m not on my own but can you remember why
Im off to check my diary to see what I have planned for today.
