Age-related Memory Loss?

I have no idea if it’s because I’m getting older, the stress levels, the multi-tasking or all the fucking years of drinking. There’s been a lot of WTF moments recently and it makes me wonder if I’m dealing with a memory loss.

The worst part is that most of the time it happens with my wife, and she has to remind me of things we talked about, for example, a meeting/appointment she had mentioned on a previous conversation. I’d like to think I’m fully aware when we have a conversation, but a lot of times she talks to me when I’m working, or when I’m tired, or when I’m in the middle of something else. Maybe she just chooses the wrong moments to talk to me. But being forgetful on things happens often enough to get into some arguments about it, and I end up getting more mad at her than she with me.

Just this weekend I ran into someone and he said hello. I didn’t immediately recognize him, it wasn’t till I saw the rest of his friends till I remembered who he was. He is not a friend, more of an acquaintance. I had not seen him in over a year.

I’m also bad with names, but so are many people.

How serious is that? I don’t know, but maybe it’s time I take some vitamins and visit the doctor.

I guess preventing memory loss is another reason why I should eat well, write and meditate often.
