Mental incompetance

Standard

I’ve been having trouble keeping track of what year it is. The other day, I thought wrote that it was 2010 before I caught myself. Today, I was thinking it was 2015.

Sometimes, I forget my cat’s name. I’ve had her for almost 3 years.

It takes me a while to figure out and remember people’s faces. Sometimes I can meet someone, talk to them for an hour, and then not recognize them when I see them again.

If there are actors on a show or movie who look similar, I can’t always tell them apart.

I have forgotten my own name, and today, I had to look at my prescription to remember the spelling of my own name to give it to the pharmacist over the phone.

When I was dating someone earlier this year, I sometimes couldn’t remember his name.

Sometimes when I go to read something, the print makes no sense and doesn’t even register as words.

I had to buy a weekly pill sorter very similar to the one above because not only do I sometimes forget to take my meds, but sometimes I can’t remember whether or not I have taken them that day.

I could keep giving examples.

I have brought these up to numerous doctors, but none of them take them seriously. It’s frustrating, and also frightening.
