Anybody Else Struggling With Short-Term Memory Loss? Here's 5 Reasons I like it.

I figure - if you can't beat 'em, well, then . . . forget what you were going to say and laugh about it. My latest blog in Huffington Post on the topic. Would love to know if you're struggling with the same thing!!http://www.huffingtonpost.com/donna-highfill/short-term-memory-loss...

Yes, I too have been struggling with this. When it first surfaced I was not yet 40 and my friends/family would tell me it was the result of having 2 toddlers and I just had "mommy brain." However, mommy brain hasn't gone away and they're not toddlers anymore. It became an impetus to write my first novel The Memory Box (forthcoming) which is a pyschological thriller about a woman who Googles herself and discovers things about her past that she has no recollection of. I guess it's my version of making lemonade.

Reading about you forgetting your daughters birthday really hit home with me. I know how absurd and frightening that feels. Thanks for sharing.

Eva - I love the concept for your book! Let me know when it comes out and I'll read and review it for the women who follow me on www.damenationblog.com!

Sounds great, Donna! Thanks for the kind offer. I'll message you when it comes out, or probably you'll just hear me screaming...

Deb: Thanks for sharing your stories . . . my God, we can either laugh or cry, and I think we both prefer laughter. I had 5 concussions before the age of 9, and I'm pretty sure that is also catching up with me. And my husband would LOVE to have two pot roasts for dinner. I don't cook for a variety of reasons, but this week I planned for 5 days to thaw out chicken but forgot to get it out every morning for 5 days even though I had post-it notes everywhere.

I think a life without short-term memory is going to be interesting :). I'm so glad you laughed when you read my article! Stay in touch -- we can support each other!

"Well, since I tend to read a lot of science fiction and fantasy I suppose it's not surprising that most of what I write is in that realm as well. But, I never choose to write a story in ____ genre. I write the characters and story that are in…"
