on the topic of forgetting

Oct 24th 2013 new
not to be presumptuous, but isn't it odd the things that one forgets?

I know I get weary but the things omitted/forgotten/skipped
are often not the unpleasant ones.........don't you hate it if
you sleep through something you were really looking forward to?

A neuropsychologist once told me that painful and traumatic events are imprinted on the brain cells because there is such a strong chemical surge at the time of the event. That's why we remember the hurtful, sad, traumatic experiences. So for the stuff that I might forget I have taken to using my phone calendar for all important events, and setting alarms. It works!

When you get older you can refer to forgetting things as a senior moment! I have always had the world's worst memory so I use an appointment book and keep it in a prominent place. For really important things I use a sticky note on the bathroom mirror. I take some teasing from my kids but at least I get where I need to be and on time.

I have another take on this, in that....


....I have reminders and alarms as suggested.


it just seems that the times I really cannot wake up is for a fun thing
[sometimes admittedly I am avoiding something] but usually
the ''musts'' are done and I sleep through fun

Darn it, what I was going to say just slipped my mind!

Oh, I remember now. There's a trade-off as our brains age. What we lose in memory we gain in judgement.

It's an odd thing. I seem to remember the names of grammar school classmates better than high school ones. And I didn't have a very large high school class. I also remember the names of co-workers I had when I was very young, 18 - 20, better than ones I had a couple of years ago.
