I am 33 years old. I have been sick for 14 years and am just starting to pursue treatment for Lyme. Things have been happening over the last month or so that have me scratching my head and I wonder if it could be related to the Lyme or if I am just getting old, lol.
I have had a lot of trouble remembering things. I have to set two alarms on my cell phone so I don't forget to take Bear out to the bus stop in the morning and to pick her up at noon. There is no way I would remember to go out and get her after school without the alarm.
If I think of something that I need to do, and don't do it immediately, I will not ever remember to do it. I have opened up a new browser window on the computer to look for something, and before I even put my fingers on the keyboard I can't remember what it is I was going to look up.
Most troubling though is the really strange stuff I have been doing lately. I washed my hair with shaving gel this morning in the shower. Didn't realize I hadn't picked up the shampoo until it was too late. I also put our address book away in the fridge, instead of the drawer next to the fridge. And twice I have poured apple juice into Bear's bowl of macaroni and cheese instead of into her cup which was right next to the bowl.
I have also had trouble with words lately. I asked Bear to turn off the lamp, instead of the TV which I had meant to say. And while making dinner the other night I asked her to wash the onions. I had meant to say mushrooms.
Maybe it's nothing. And I will mention it to my doctor if he ever calls me back, lol. But I just feel like something is "off". I can almost feel it inside my head. Hard to describe but it is really starting to make me nervous.

at 33, it's not just "gettinhg older" but could be a tick disease.
I'm 20 and the same way. College tests are problematic when it comes to fill in the blank sections. I know the answer, but the wrong words come to mind. I walk into walmart and can walk out 5 minutes later with no idea as to where I parked.
