Lethologica~A psychological disorder where in an individual temporarily forgets key words, phrases or names
I think I have it...no, I KNOW I have it! It's happening daily now since I celebrated my birthday earlier this month. I'll be talking to someone on the phone and suddenly I just lose my whole train of thought. The train leaves the station, derails and becomes a ghost town. For the life of me, I can't remember where I was going with the conversation.
It's embarrassing too that names just don't stay in my head for more than a few minutes. Then I have a panic attack when I see them at the grocery store and cannot remember their name, or sometimes even how I know them...I just know I do.
It's a cruel trick of nature that I can remember our addresses going back 40 years... Church Street, Cleveland Avenue, Beau Monde, McDonnell, Fair Lake Drive, Birch, Happy Hollow, Oxford Drive, Ravencourt Circle Nottingham, Maderas, Kingsbury and South View...aah, that makes me feel better. At least I can remember something!
