Hey folks new here! I was wondering if anyone else has had the experience of family and friends telling them they don’t have any difficulties with their memory, when you clearly know you do? I find that my husband will admit it in a joking way but when I am genuinely upset by it he says I don’t have memory issues. This is a common pattern with other people too. I feel like they are metaphorically patting me on the head and saying there there, but not actually listening or validating me, which in turn makes the forgetting more frustrating! I have to do lists to help but I forget what I want to put on them, things like bills and ‘life admin’ stuff I need to be reminded a few times before I remember to do it, occasionally I forget my words (and English was always my thing!) and sometimes I can’t remember if I’ve taken my pills or not. To me I notice a decline and it’s not a massive problem but at times it frustrates me. Would be nice to hear if anyone else has had this experience with family and friends as it is driving me up the wall somewhat! Thanks 🙂 x
