Juggling life through a bi-polar lens. Sometimes up, sometimes down. Mostly trying to tread water in the middle. Creating a likeness to a normal life. Whatever "normal" is...

Back at mum's

I don't know why I worry about mum's loss of memory. I'm doing it myself.

This morning I put on some porridge for breakfast, then walked out of the room and started doing something else. The next thing I know, it's black smoke and stinky burnt oats billowing in the kitchen. OOOPSS!!!!

I tell mum about my own little 'senior moments' like these, in the hope that it will make her feel better, tell her that it's ok, we all have them. I don't think it's having that reassuring effect at all; she now just thinks it's hereditary!

We all have those moments. Like leaving the iron on and leaving the house for hours! Nothing bad happened, but it scared me!

I've not left anything on the stove.....yet, but I have left the gas burning after I've dished up, and I can never remember where I've put things, and I talk to myself all the time, and I walk in a room and can't remember why I've gone there....and.....and. Oh dear! ;o)

Take care Helena! I am getting increasingly like this too - walking into a room and then forgetting why I'm there, walking away from a task midway through...!
