What to do with forgetful spouse, even when he writes things down, and causes disappoint/stress?


You may discuss something for hours, he writes it down in his remember board, and nothing works.

    You have a unique way of remembering that works. If we find what works for us, that is the best we can ever do to help ourselves.

    What do you do if one or the other forgets to turn on the cell phone, and you cannot reach the person? You can buy home phones that will call from room to room. and that is so great. Laughter is great, Mary.Thanks. This is fun.

    You got that right, as the best result is for one person to have decent memory. Then sometimes that person goes into brain overload. At most times, that person can try to call the shots, as you say. That person must be tuned in to the need to do that

    Thanks for your suggestions and affirmations.You are right about having too many things to do. If what you say is not important to a person, he often only remembers what is important to him.

    That is a great answer. I know people forget, and others remember only what is important to them. It would be nice to have a memory class.
