Today has been one of those days! I’m pretty sure that I’ve re-sent several emails today because I can remember if I have already sent a response to someone’s email or not.

The emails start like this: “I can’t remember if I’ve replied to this or not, but just in case…” I get about 150 emails a day so trying to remember who I’ve replied to and who I haven’t replied to is very difficult. Sometimes I form the reply in my mind and then I REALLY can’t remember if I’ve replied.

I think there are a lot of reasons that my memory isn’t as good as it used to be. One reason is because I’m just a very busy person and I tend to only remember things that are important to me for one reason or another.

My husband and I went to the same high school and we graduated a long time ago (ok…34 years ago!)  He can recall people, events and places from our high school days all the time. Me? Never. I only keep in touch with a couple of people that I went to high school with. We talk about the fun we had in marching band and during all those football games – but that’s about it. I can’t even remember the names of my teachers!

Another reason for poor memory is because of some of the medicines I take can impact my memory. There are a gazillion drugs that can make your memory worse. Here are just a few: anything that begins with “anti” like antihistamine, antidepressant, and antipsychotics. I take Benadryl® for springtime allergies. Benadryl® is an antihistamine.

Another drug class that can hurt your memory are medicines for cholesterol. Drugs that lower cholesterol have such a big impact on your brain that memory loss must be listed as a side-effect!
