Has Covid affected your memory?

Supernanma Member Posts: 42 Connected
I suffer from short term memory loss anyway since my nervous breakdown, but since covid started, and I don't really have anyone to talk too, my memory has become really bad. I struggle with words and spellings too. It hasn't helped that an elderly neighbour, told me that just because I lived a sad unworthy life, she wasn't going too. She said I had been bossy too. It's really hurt my feelings. I don't see lots of people, but my life isn't sad, nor unworthy. I enjoy my own company but I really do need to talk to people to use my brain... Or what's left of it! So has anyone else found that their memory has gone a bit mushy?

    Hi @Supernanma I think during the pandemic we have all lost our communication skills we need to go out again and mix. I am sorry that your elderly neighbour felt the need to say you have a sad unworthy life. She really did not have the right to say that. I also like my own company some of the time I always have. I personally do not have memory loss although I can go upstairs for something and forget what I went for. There is always someone to talk to on the Community so please join in. Not quite the same as face to face but the next best thing. Take care.

    I do find I have lost a few words here and there and names of people on tv defeat me sometimes. It’s to be expected to some degree as we age however stimulation is the key, write to us on here whenever you like about anything you like bearing in mind the house rules. As the tea bag said to the coffee bean “express yourself!” 🙂

    If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.

    @Supernanma just ignore your neighbour  nothing to do with them, they'd soon moan if you started having wild parties.
