    What you do when forget something?

    Sometimes I can not remember many things. Then I face many difficulties. I tried many tricks but did not get the success.

    When I can't remember something, I usually retrace my steps. I go back to where i was and move from there. When I do, most times I remember!

    Good idea is to retrace your steps but also you   can search continuously until it finally clicks it has happened to me and  I make sure i find what it is that I am looking for then I am at piece. Search in the usual places and then else where

    I went through this for a while when I was suffering with thyroid disease.  I couldn't remember anything.  I had to bring a notebook everywhere I went just to take notes.  Routine things also like forgetting to do laundry or what my own phone number is.  It got very frightening.

    I bought a shirt with a pocket in it (like a nurse's top), and also an apron so I could intermingle them during the week.  I kept a pen and paper in my pocket at all times.

    I also had a calendar I would write appointments in, and a white board on the fridge for things like that.  I also wrote important phone numbers in my calendar so I'd have them quickly if needed.

    I started taking a few vitamins.  Ginkgo, plus some Korean Ginseng, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, and Vitamin B.  That really helped a lot.

    I wish I had an answer to this. My memory loss is returning after several years of it being minimal. Like you it has caused me some difficulties and can be rather embarrassing. I like craftytothecore's ideas, though overwhelming to me. I think supplements such as fish oil and some of the Bvitamins can help, however some of the herbal substances is risky when combined with psychotropic meds.

    Breathing, you are in my prayers. We are in this together.

    God bless

      Oh yes, Omega 3 is supposed to be very good for memory as well.  My son's therapist told me to give him that as a supplement.

    The main thing about forgetting is NOT to worry about forgetting. The more one worries and frets about forgetting things, the more likely one is to forget. Keep a notebook to write down important things like appointments, names and telephone numbers. For the rest, remain confident that you will remember them in time or will realize their unimportance. Don't worry about forgetting things, except, perhaps, forgetting to eat three times a day.
