Memory loss? What memory loss?

I walked into the kitchen thinking, 'I must take the hoover upstairs with me.'
I walked out of the kitchen and up the stairs not realising until I reached the top that I'd left the hoover downstairs.

I don't have to worry about getting old and losing my short term memory. I don't have a short term memory to lose.

Did I tell you that short term memories are over rated Liz?

Who needs memory anyway?

I can relate to that...I'm sure I walk kilometres during the day going back for things I've forgotten to bring with me...

Oh I do that too. I am also very clever at going up the stairs and when I've reached the top can't remember what I went up for.

Just FYI, Liz + her readers,
short term memory problems, ADD, and inability to concentrate MAY be a side effect of taking statins (to reduce your cholesterol), especially in women, newest research shows.

Now when you consider that a brain consists mostly of cholesterol, is that unlikely?

Now what was I saying?

Hahahahahahahaha!!!

That's funny! You think you have problems? See my latest post! LOL!

I completely lost my short term memory for roughly a day, and it's still gradually returning. Some long term memory loss too, but I'm told that will come back eventually. Looking back, it was an interesting and enlightening experience, but I don't think I'd like to live through it again.

I do that sort of thing all the time!

I was going to comment about something but now I've scrolled down here... er sorry what was the post about :-)

You might have mentioned that before, jams!

Indeed, james.

It's nature's way of keeping us fit, puss.

So many times, dd.

Good job I'm not on statins then, stu!

That must have been scary, jay.

cherrypie, leslie, we all do: I don't think it's significant. Been doing it for years!

You're asking me, furtheron?!!

Just another side-effect of that blessed time in a woman's life...menopause. Bah.
