    Mom: I got Amber to cover for me for a couple of hours on Monday.
    Me: Why do you need Amber to cover for you?
    Mom: So I can go to your doctor appointment with you.
    Me: Why?
    Mom: *Sigh* Because you asked me to.
    Me: I did?
    Mom: *Sigh* You don't remember?
    Me: Ummmmm.....No.
    Mom: So, I went through all of this trouble and now I don't need to go?
    Me: I don't know. Why did I want you to go with me?
    Mom: You don't remember this conversation?
    Me: Ummmmmm....No. Was it recently?
    Mom: Last week.
    Me: Ok. Why did I want you to go to the doctor with me?
    Mom: *Sigh* You really don't remember this conversation?
    Me: No, I don't. I'm not making it up. I'm in a flare...I don't remember much of anything.
    Mom: So do you want me to go?
    Me: I don't know. Why did I want you to go?
    Mom: (Agitated) Because you're sick of going from one specialist to another and....yada, yada, yada.
    Me: Oh. Well, that sounds like a good reason. Yeah, why don't you come with me so you can help me keep it all straight.
    Mom: *Sigh* Ok. Well, I'm going to call you tomorrow on my way to my nail appointment around 2:30. Write it down.
    Me: Write down that you're going to call me?
    Mom: Yeah. So you don't forget.
    Me: Ok. What time are you calling again?

    And I'm laughing with you, not at you. Reminds me of conversations I had with easy child for 2-3 yrs after the car accident. Ok, not just easy child....everyone. lol I still have trouble from time to time. But not near as bad as then. She could tell me something and less than 5 mins later it was gone. Everyone would get so frustrated with me....but geez wasn't like I wanted to forget.

    easy child still double and triple checks with me to make sure I haven't forgotten things. lol ;)

    A few minutes ago:

    Devon: You didn't throw those coupons away did you?
    Me: I'm not sure. It was more than 5 minutes ago. Go check.


    Devon had a laugh at that one, too.

    5 minutes? Shoot...that'd be good in my book.

    Mum is right - write everything & anything down. I finally broke down & bought a day timer (used to use my PDA for everything - can't seem to operated it because of my coordination). I have note pages inserted into every week or I'll miss or forget something.

    All the pros that wonder thru my home & my doctors are used to me digging thru my notes.

    Okay Heather, well, at least you know you're not alone.

    easy child has a little tiny metal clipboard with note paper in it. She writes everything down. I am a list maker, but she's beyond that. It's actually to a point where she wants to see a specialist to find out why she can't remember anything. But you know what? When it comes to cooking/baking, she can put stuff together without even glancing at a recipe! Go figure.

    I'm glad your mom is going with you - she can take notes. Perhaps you two should go over [and write down] some questions you may have that she will can remember to ask for you?

    Jo, I am much like your daughter. I use a spiral notebook to help keep track of things I too am in a flare and can remember NOTHING. But I can cook so many things with-o even looking at a recipe, or just reading it once before I start. I don't know why recipes stick when nothing else does. I even tried writing notes down like recipes, didn't work.

    I completely understand the conversation with your mom, Heather. I have chats like that with everyone in my life.
