In the last couple months, I’ve had a few scary memory issues. 3 fairly significant memory lapses, the usual other stuff we all experience (getting up from your chair, and then forgetting what you were doing), etc. Other cognitive issues as well.
Anyway I was telling a very good friend this morning about this stupid thing…. I had “liked” something on FB on Monday, and commented on the thread. It was about the Philadelphia Flyers new creepy mascot. On Tuesday, I posted the same exact photo, thinking I had just discovered the darn thing — zero memory of seeing it and commenting on it the day before. Not a life shattering thing, just a stupid NHL mascot. But, combined with the other memory issues the last couple months, it’s worrying to me.
Her comment was “this is not the biggest worry in your life, let it go.” I had only said ONE thing about it. I just saw the neuro on Monday for these new-to-me memory problems. Such an unfeeling thing to say!! How would she like it if she had to deal with memory issues like this? I very lightly vent to her — and I’m laughing because it IS a silly thing but combined with everything else, it’s scary to me. And she’s a really close friend. Aren’t they supposed to be supportive?
I’m normally a very upbeat happy person, and don’t dwell on stuff, but this is a hard week. In addition to usual life stuff, I feel like I’m losing my mind, and then to get that comment from a close friend…. I don’t know. It’s crappy. I don’t talk to many people about MS. My husband and this friend, really. Nobody wants to hear somebody complain about their health all the time so I’m pretty quiet about it all (even with my husband).
That’s all. I know you guys understand.
