Forgetfulness, Senility or Dementia
Sometimes I buy things that are on special offer, even if we don't actually need them at the time. I'll just put them away and store them until they are needed. The trouble is when I open the store cupboard I find one or more of the same already in there. I should have saved my money. I also have a number of places for these little caches, and I find myself thinking, "I know I bought one of these last week, But where on earth did I put it?"
Sometimes I think about other things while I'm brushing my teeth. Then I can't remember whether I actually used the mouthwash that finishes off that routine. I'm sure sometimes I do it twice because I can't remember the first time.
Often it's my hubby who finds things we need, or that I've misplaced. I've forgotten where I last took off my specs, or put my gloves when I came indoors. we laugh about it, but it's a bit worrying, all the same.
I'm a senior so is it just me at my age? Or is this more common than I thought? Are you a forgetful person?
