ever since about eight months ago, my memory/ability to concentrate's been slowly but surely patching out. started out w/ me having a bit harder of a time writing because i'd just bluescreen and lose my train of thought halfway through an essay or what have you, and occasionally showing people dog pix they'd already seen. now it's...i have to write everything on my arms because i forget to write things in my planner, when i remember that i have a planner, and a lot of times i even forget that i wrote on my arms. shitting out a basic fucking essay is nigh impossible now, it turns out one rambly giant text wall that changes focus every time i blank out and forget what i was writing and what direction i wanted to go, and it doesn't matter how many notes i jot down or how extensively my outline's planned out because i can't keep track well enough to wrap my head around those things, either. i tell people about things that happened earlier that day, sometimes only a half hour or so earlier, and completely fucking forget that they were there to see whatever the fuck it was. and then, a couple hours later, after the 'yo tA we were literally in the same room' talk, i tell them again, with no memory of telling them the first time or of them being there. (until after, once i'm prompted, but even then it's blurry unless i'm specifically asked about things.) it's getting to the point where i walk three feet, stop, and regroup cuz i forgot what i was gonna do. repeatedly. it takes me half a goddamn hour to write a coherent paragraph because i can't hold on to what i'm saying long enough to write it out, which isn't doing me any favors academically. i know i could write, and write well, and all that shit, but i can't make it happen anymore and of all the fucking ways my brain's fucked me over i think i like this one the least. so. i'm losing stuff faster now and really need to not drop out of highschool and remember to shower and eat and put pants on and text my boyfriend, and this def doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. anyone with a crappy memory have any workarounds or strategies they use so i can keep from completely crashing and burning?
