Totally, absolutely sucks….driving to work in the morning with sleep still lingering on eyelashes and reaching there to find out,you left your laptop home!! What are you without your laptop-your armor, your shield, your weapon-all rolled into one.Its like going to the battlefield with no arms/ammunition, its suicide. So you do an about turn from the parking to sweet home again and speed all through the way and curse yourself/someone for the soup you are in….
God, this happened to me today and I was behind the wheel for 45 mins instead of the stipulated 15 mins!! And all through the way, I called hubby, the official punching bag and uttered all nasty things to my heart’s content to him,like how stressed and overworked and underslept I am.
Why do I forget? I brew a nice cup of coffee in the morning, pour it down into my travel mug and keep it in the car, to sip it while at my desk and it never makes it to my desk. I forget it in the car….and I am just so frustrated to go all the way to the parking again for that cuppa coffee. And when I know my son is home already, I still drive to the daycare to pick him up.And I absolutely 100% know the four-digit access code to the daycare and still I stand and stare at the keypad, trying to recollect the code.
Maybe this amnesia is the degeneration of brain cells- as in ageing? Its creepy and I amd not ready to accept that,yet.C’mon I can still climb the flight of stairs in one breath!!Or is it true that we become what we read and watch? Hubby would agree 100% on that, because he despises my shushing him when I am on a novel. I was till yesterday reading the book “Remember Me?”, by Sophie Kinsella. It is about a woman who meets an accident and forgets 3 years worth of her life. See, I read just any fiction!!Is that rubbing on to me?Also, maybe I am, in my subconscious, obsessed by Alzheimer’s after the movie You, me and humm..
Anyway,here are some funny ones on amnesia/Alzheimer’s;
The nice thing about Alzheimer’s is you get to hide your own Easter eggs.
Irish Alzheimer’s: you forget everything except the grudges
People think it’s a terrible tragedy when somebody has Alzheimer’s. But in my mother’s case, it’s different. My mother has been unhappy all her life. … For the first time in her life, she’s happy.”
These days I walk into a room full of people and the only name I can remember is “Alzheimer”
