I have ridiculously bad memory. Every day I walk around the house aimlessly without even realizing. It starts because I go to get something or whatever, but then forget what it is and just keep walking around like a mindless zombie. I can barely remember anything from my childhood, and I honestly couldn't tell you what I did just yesterday. I always do stupid stuff like put the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the pantry. I can't remember important things, names, faces, etc. Sometimes I will stare blankly at something without blinking for a while until I snap out of it or someone "wakes me up." Also, sometimes when someone tells me something I comprehend it but then a second later I completely forget and have to ask them to repeat themselves.

I usually just write it off as nothing or look back on it and think it's hilarious, but I'm beginning to worry. Not to mention it makes everyone angry. I'm only 19 years old so I would think my memory should be much better than this, so I'm wondering if any of you do any of this.

Did you tl;dr?

It means you only have half a brain.

I'm sorry.


I said it means you only have half a brain.

I've got the same thing going on. I went to the doctor a few months ago and found out that it's from my messed up sleep pattern due to my narcolepsy. I've been on some medication (Nuvigil), and it's a drastic improvement. I still blank from time to time, but I've been much better recently

EDIT: Even if you don't do the "passing out" thing (I don't either), it's still narcolepsy. Your zoning out is your brain trying to catch up on the sleep you missed the night before. Other things you might have noticed are cataplexy (you get really fatigued after emotional highs or lows) and being exhausted during the day.

Haha you ass

@hippogasmo Alright, so I'm not crazy. Sweet.

im surprised you could remember what you were typing and then remember to post it.

i stare blankly at walls alot but my memory is quite good.

Nope, not that I know of. I used to have pretty good memory. It's been crap lately.

Now seriously, any of your parents had memory problems when they were young?

you'll forget all about having a bad memory.

I'm 19, have terribly shitty short-term memory, and when I talk, my mind can't seem to think of the right words quickly enough, so I pause a lot, which makes me (and I'm sure many others) think I'm a fucking retard. If I really concentrate on talking, I can make it fluent like a fucking stream, but I usually forget to do that.

Maybe I should just murder myself.

Aw man I do the same thing. It's terrible when you're trying to tell a joke, it could be the funniest joke ever but all the pausing ruins it.
#19

Dude I have the same exact thing! And I'm only 17

I smoke a lot, and I think that might be the problem, but even when I don't smoke I'm like this and I've been like this for as long as I can remember. I'm also almost always tired, especially in school. Am I narcoleptic?

The analogy of the brain as a muscle is correct IMO, practice, really try to make sure you remember things. Brain training is kind of important for those without mentally stimulating things in their lives!

If you're talking about smoking tobacco that should actually increase your short term memory... If you're talking about pot then you're not using your mind enough.

It's 288, why is everyone so stupid? Once you add inside the parentheses you get 48/2(12). The 2(12)--just plain old multiplication--doesn't magically obtain a higher priority than the 48/2 just because of the notation used.

Has anyone mentioned centipedes?

It's about awareness and the ability to notice and absorb information, nothing physically wrong with you, perhaps you stare at a screen too long.. There are some exercises that can help you stimulate the visuospatial processing and the ability to absorb information and store it..

I once convinced my head teacher I had amnesia, and for the only year I had her teaching me, she never once asked me a question in class or criticized my work.

I have an awful AWFUL memory.
Found out I have a b12 deficiency and its partially to blame. I just zone out all the time.
Much better now that I'm getting b12 shots though, so maybe you have a vitamin deficiency or something

Studies show that constantly telling yourself you have a bad memory might impair your memory further.

So don't.

He probably genuinely is. He thinks he's 19 but his memory's so bad he's fogotten just how old he is.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.
