    Yep, 2 thoughts in my head, these day is becoming a serious case of over crowding!

    I actually tell pts now " Please don't be offended .I am not going to remember your name. No sense in faking it. I accept where I am it. So,when I stare at you blankly ,which I am confident I will, could you please help me out and just tell me your name."
    The pt seem to get a kick out of it too !

    Haha, you should see the number of half-finished books laying around my living room. I start one and then walk into the study to grab a pen, while there I see another book with a catchy title so I sit there and start that one too. While looking for a pen that I don't find, I reach into my purse for the pen and discover the novel I took to the doctor's office to read in case of delays and then start reading that one. Don't get me started on household chores that I start and never finish yet I'm exhausted at the end of the day.



    OP, you don't know how happy I am to learn that I'm not an isolated case at forgetfulness

    Ha! I've been like that my whole life! I didn't know that other people DON'T do that. Don't worry, everyone, it's not fatal to be ditzy, just embarrassing!!

    Case in point, right now I have headphones in one ear so I can listen to music while watching the video. The washing machine is running, the sink is half full of dishes that I started washing an hour ago, I have swept the kitchen and gotten out the mop, and I put my stethoscope beside the computer so I'll remember to put it in my work bag. I have paid three bills, but I got up to check on the washing machine before I paid the rest, and when I came back I was distracted by AN!

    Now that happens ALL the time with me. The computer just seems to call my name. Such a good distraction though..........
