Getting Old and Forgetting Crap

Recommended Posts

Woke up this morning feeling like a rugby team had been using me stomping on me all night.

I was standing there in front of the mirror brushing my teeth and the thought occurred to me that I had a doctor's appointment scheduled Monday afternoon to get the danged sleep apnea compressor, whatever it's called, replaced.

It broke down a while back and since I only sleep about 4 hours a night I need every second of sleep I can get to stay, uh, er,....sharp. Without the extra oxygen that thing provides, I don't really sleep so much as doze and I have memory problems.

Then it hit me,...Monday was yesterday. The appointment time had come and gone yesterday while I was sitting in my office engrossed with writing a report. Damn!!!

Oh well, now I have to call them, apologize for missing the appointment, beg 'em for another and try to remember the next one. This is me in a nutshell these days:

On the upside - the nice thing about Alzheimer's is you meet someone new, in the mirror, every morning.

Why is he always wearing my bathrobe......(?).....that's what I wanna know.....

Y'know Mike, forgetfulness isn't the end of the world. Be thankful you don't have poor old Stan Boreson's malady (but then again, maybe you do).[:-yuck]

I got a cool new CPAP machine last month. The dang thing is computerized - it gets programmed via an SD card. I don't even have to turn it on or off; put the mask on and it turns on, take the mask off and it goes off. It doesn't make any noise either.

Ideas pop into my head all day long. I'll forget them if I don't make lists. I sometimes have a stacks of lists of which I use to make a new one.

Maybe I'd be better off if I just forgot all together.

Just rembered, time to get a fresh battery for the screw gun.
