Black Hole in the universe

Image via Wikipedia

Have you ever had a point in life when your memory just seems to quit? When you truthfully cannot remember an entire period of time? It seems like your memory just escaped into the black hole of life.

This, to most people’s amusement happens to me quite often. Just today in fact. I finished dinner and set about my evening routine when I realized that I don’t even remember how I got home from work. This is scary because it is a whole 30 minute period that I have no recollection of. I know I drove home, because my car is currently sitting outside (still in one piece, thank goodness), but I cannot for the life of me remember the drive home.

These black holes in my memory span from as recent as today to many years ago. For example, I don’t remember going to Disney Land when I was ten, even though it was an eventful trip (or so I’m told).  It doesn’t seem to matter how hard I try, I cannot remember what I did last weekend.  I actually do know what I did last weekend because there are pictures, the world of social media can be so cruel.

My employees loved my “black hole memory”.  It gave them the opportunity to come to work, pick the project they wanted to work on then claim that I assigned them that project.  After a few claims of “well, you told me to sit here and watch the door” I took to writing things down.  Now, they are not so happy, and actually quite vocal about the fact.

I have been to see a doctor and had a barrage of tests done to find out if there is anything wrong with me.  After many nervous days of waiting the results came back.  There is plenty wrong with me, unfortunately none of it has anything to do with my memory.  So for now, I’m stuck taking Ginko, when I can remember to take it, and draining the battery of my tablet keeping constant notes on my chaotic and ever-changing life.

At least I’m never bored.  I can spend hours trying to decipher the cryptic notes I leave myself.  How “kick the book” and  “surrender flag” are connected I’ve yet to determine.

Ciao for now!
