Memory test

Postby gillshutt » Sun Dec 14, 2008 8:22 am

I've finally got my appointment to see someone about my memory.

After I had a 'funny turn' where I didn't recognise where I was in the village, having lived here for 21 years and near here for 7 years before that :shock: My doc decided I needed to get checked out in case I had dementia :shock: :shock:

I think it was just a bad fog day but I'll be interested to see how I do. Ihave to go on Friday for a computerised memory test... hope I pass :lol:

Will let you know how it goes and what it involves just in case anyone else has to go for one.

Gill, I used to have a VERY good memory recall but now I feel like a total fool.
I HAVE to use a sat nav to get me round my town...

So I tried to test myself I have a game that I love a little bit like the game where you remember light sequences ( like the simon says or bop it games)

I used to be able to recall upto 40 moves depending on how tired or how much wine but always over 30.
Now the most I can remember is 19 and forget them after 3 attempts to only recall 8-10...

A little like the camp fires game I went to the shops and I bought...

So yes I think it is the fibro as I was fine till I got this and have got worse and worse...

Give it a go there are online games you can play to test you..
Good luck although if you rlike me you may have forgotten you posted this by the time i have pressed enter lol

I got the 2 Brain Training Games for DS and managed to get a 20 year old brain on both so gave up on them :lol: I've got one now where I can play cards, board games etc and play it most days... I manage the puzzles in the paper as well although if I make a mistake I now get annoyed with it and chuck it instead of starting again :lol:

The main reason I'm going is to put my docs mind at ease... I think I'm fine 8)

hey thats a good result mine said I had the brain of an eighty year old !!

seriously I was around a freind who was talking about re decorating her

living room in 2 colours and having a thingy in between the two colours

for the life of me I couldnt remember the word Border , and I do silly

things (dont laugh) like put the sugar in the fridge and the milk in the cupboard :(

still one good thing I too laugh it off otherwise you could get very annoyed

with yourself and I suppose it adds to the entertainment of the family
