Hi Like a lot of us I suffer from cognitive impairment across many areas: Short term memory/recall Concentration confusion/brain fog Coordination Sound and light sensitivity Over the last week I’ve noticed something new associated with memory and I wondered whether anyone else has had this (I.e. is it normal for ME). I get the normal short term memory lapses, problems with word recall etc. This happens every day and waxes and wanes throughout the day...some days hardly at all, other days much worse. This normally is resolved and manageable with memory aids and Mrs and Master Sloth reminding me of things. I class this as normal ME moments. I’ve never had any problem eventually recalling something either when I’m reminded or later during a good patch. This last week though has been different. Here is an example of what illustrates maybe 3 or 4 complete memory absences: I was at work in a meeting ....the conversation moved to a subject that crosses over to my area of responsibility and a new piece of work emerged. A colleague turned to me and started discussing some analysis I had done. She inferred I had done some work, sent it to her and discussed various insights and questions I had on the data. I just looked blank and thought “I don’t think so...what are they going on about?’ I said as much later and was sent an email that I sent to her 4 weeks ago with a massive piece of work, analysis and recommendations in it. It was clearly from me with email signature, my turn of phrase etc. I just can’t ever remember discussing it, doing the work (it’s nearly a days worth of solid work) thinking about it, writing the email etc. It’s like there is nothing in my memory at all. I still can’t recall anything about it. This has happened now quite a few times over the last week and a half. Is this normal to have something completely erased from ones memory? I have complete clarity of recall on everything else. This is the first time this black hole memory loss has happened over the last 7 years since I’ve been sick. Anyone else have this?
