Cool Short Term Memory loss :D - October 22nd 2012, 06:57 PM

So guysssss. It's official. I have short term memory loss...for a short term. Basically the combo of Sertraline and Pregabalin have sent my brain dippy and whilst I continue to take the tablets, my short term memory will remain appalling. But I am not allowed off the tablets for at least 18 months.

However. I can cope with this! Or not. I'm struggling to remember stuff, obviously, but I have no idea how to tacke the issue. I've got a diary to write my appointments in but I forget that I have it and that I've written in it. I write notes for myself, read them, bin them, then forget what they said. I forget to keep the memos I write for myself

So so so. Any tips from you lovely lot on how to manage this inconvenient temporary amnesia?

Yours truly...

Re: Short Term Memory loss :D - October 22nd 2012, 07:07 PM

could you buy a mini whiteboard and write down appointments on it and put it somewhere you usually look (above where you keep your meds/bedroom door etc) or a memo board. You might be able to put alarms on your phone for appointments etc. do you live with other people? if you do, maybe you could ask them to write notes for you and stick them somewhere for you each day. Also, for more mundane things, you could try keeping a diary and reading the last couple of entries each morning to refresh you memory?
Hope some of this helps.
