Hello Vicki,
The suspense is getting too much !!! Have you not remembered what it was you were going to post ?
My odd moment is, finding myself in the kitchen wondering why I came in ! After a little thought I generally remember. If not, I just tell myself " it mustn't have been that important anyway".
Take care,
Love from Lydia.

Know the feeling....after talking to my Mum on the phone yesterday, I told my husband that she was worried that my Dad's getting more forgetful. And then I couldn't remember the other thing I was going to tell him. Honestly!

Since surgery last year I often forget things, I just tell myself its been a stressful time and I can't remember everything :)

It's when you are having an intense conversation and half way through making a point you forget what it was. May come to you eventually but by then the moment has passed. Had one of these moments the other day when the reporter who wanted to talk to patients on Amioderone phoned me.

When did this forum start?
