Where did my brain go?

Some of you know how much I wanted information, about type 2 diabetes, and that I had a lot of appointments on my plate. I remarked about having two diabetes classes coming up, and somehow got into cleaning my living room. [And yes they had called to remind me] Spaced it out, and then got that feeling I am so missing something.

I was from 4p - 6p supposed to be in one of two classes. I promptly called Mercy Hospital, apologizing all over the place for my brain lapse. Instead of getting the royal chew out for not calling 24 hours in advance, the nurse rescheduled me so that not only will I get the first class, but didn't have to reschedule the all day class.

I write all my appt's on the calender, now am thinking I may need to put up sticky notes throughout the house. To be honest I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Are brain lapses part of this too? Most of the time I am on top of the appt's, but the one that actually I felt was super important, I just completely overloolked.

Thanks everyone, its nice to know I am not alone in this and its nice, really nice to see there are things we can laugh about. On the scale of what's a big worry, I don't think this one is it…thanks again, I needed to smile, and your responses made me do just that.

I believe it may, D. But then again it may just being human. I am on several connect sites and it seems to be a consistent topic in most. On ADHD site, it's called one thing, in Fibro site it's called "Fibro Fog" and so on. My Jem had Lupis and she complained about lapses in her memory she called "Lupis brain". Me? I just have "brain farts". IMO that's just a part of the human condition.

If you're missing big chunks of time from you memory, then get yourself checked for brain function, otherwise "FAGEDDABOUTIT" (as someone on the Sopranos might say)!
