Has this ever happened to any one?
You go somewhere for some reason and forget where you are or why your there?
I went in my back yard yesterday and did not even recognise my own yard!

What I struggle with is dislexia now. I don't know if it is my fingers getting ahead of my brain, but I type and retype many words before I finihs a post. That worries me sometimes...

Well Gabby again you are not alone here either. I do the same thing and sometimes I don't really see the mistakes written until after I click add my reply. But nevertheless I hope that it is understood what I'm saying because sometimes it a mystery to me…LOL. Just keep on writing we'll figure it out…SMILES.

THE SAME THING HAPPENS TO ME ALSO. BUT WHAT SCARES ME IS THAT MY DAD WAS DIABETIC AND PASED AWAY DUE TO ALZSHIEIMER'S. I AM THE ONLY ONE OF MY BROTHERS OR SISTER'S THAT HAS DIABETIES.
I JUST WONDER IF ALZHIEMER'S IS JUST AROUND THE CORNOR FOR ME ALSO.

This is something that happens often to a lot of people. I know it was happening to me weigh before now but it always seem to come back to me too what I was going to do. It's like for a moment in time you have a block that just as sudden as it happens disappears. It may be something that is just and normal occurance for many.

I probably should have read more of the posts first, but, yes definitely, it's like a complete mind lapse; sort of when you've been writing the same words for years and suddenly can't even spell the simple ones. I really do not know what that means, but lots of people experience it. Hope this helps

After I read all the other posts, I really don't think it is just related to diabetes,or even alzeimers. I have family members with both diseases, and some without; everyone seems to experience this at one time in another, I do think it could be age related though.

I have the same problems and my dad, mother and sister all developed alzsheimers and ultimately died from related diseases. It is a real concern.

My Dr. has said the FDA is working on an approval for a diabetic drug with something in it that will slow down the progression of Alzsheimer. That would be great.

I can say it is vaguely familiar. But I only forget why I was there. I will recognize where i am. I blame it on old age.

I had the forgetting thing a LOT before I started working on gaining contol of my levels. Now I think I have a more "normal" range of forgetting for my age, but I have never not recognized anything that badly yet...that had to be scarry when that happened.

Unfortunately it happens alot to me. I used to think it was my pain meds doing it but my Doctor said it is the diabetes. Diabetics have a real high incident of getting Alzsheimer's disease. I am only 50 and sometimes I think I am going crazy. So you are not alone.

As if we don't have enough to worry about, we have to worry about this too. When I went into the hospital and got diagnosed, my husband said this was happening alot to me, but I don't remember it…no pun intended!
