Memory issues

Who here has a really difficult time remembering things? I struggle with basic things and can watch a tv show and get to the end with no idea what happened. It really sucks …

Memory can be be unreliable. Just focusing on whats happening can be difficult too.

Yeah same. It’s really frustrating because it often stops me from watching things. Now I’m at the point where people won’t even talk to me about movies or shows much because they know I don’t watch. It really feels like I’m missing out on a chance to connect with people on something.

I’ve found that putting on closed captions or subtitles help a bit.

I’ve had bad memory issues. I’m looking for a supplement.

Mine’s a bit like the curate’s egg. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve had overly sweet coffee because I’ve put 2 sweeteners in,forgot and added 2 more.

Yes, I have had issues with memory and attention and cognition. However, I do not feel it is hopeless. I think that there are things I can consciously do to improve.

My memory is fine. Atm. But when I am anxious or stressed, it is really bad.
