NaBloPoMo Day 3 – I always remember that I have a bad memory

I read an article the other day about how if you have memory problems, but you know that you have memory problems, you probably aren’t developing dementia. Rather, your memory problems are probably due to something else, like depression or sleep deprivation. If you have memory problems but you aren’t aware that you are forgetting things – like, for example, your spouse/children/caregiver are noticing that you keep forgetting things, but you don’t see it, that’s a situation that is more likely to develop into dementia. This article was quite a relief, as I’m well aware that my memory is terrible, so I’m in the clear!

I would link to the article, but for the life of me I can’t remember where I read it…
