I’ve come to realized that my memory isn’t how it used to be (I’m not 30 yet..but i had some traumatizing past experiences that screwed up my brain a bit…no i didn’t do drug or wasn’t kicked in the head). I’m getting worried that my memories was affected by that incident. I find myself not remembering things in details as I once did (unless they stand significantly).
I recently found out FI saves everything (well I always knew he saved everything but figured they were for sentimental purposes) however, he’s continued to save everything (receipt from our first movie together to the trolly passes from our first vacation together to the bows I wrapped his xmas gifts with). He’s been collecting EVERYTHING since we had our first date so that it will help me remember if I happen to forget (and I admit, I did forget some stuff and these things he saved does jog my memory). I guess I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem remembering things (normal) or I’m getting old and losing brain cells already?

I was in a car accident last june, I hit my head on my windshield and I swear my memory has not been the same sense. I tell FI the same story three or four times, and every time he listens like it was the first… (bless his heart) when the story is over I always ask him, “youve heard this story before haven’t you?” he just smiles and gives me a kiss… you aren’t loosing your mind, just becoming a great story teller.

awwww you both have really nice Fi’s, humoring the crazy ladies … lol … I find that I forget things, and that mementos do trigger memories of that time. But isn’t that why they create .. mementos and people keep journals?

@swtTea:I’m 30 and I still remember things very well. Maybe the accident did something to effect your short term memory. Sorry.

My FI has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and ever since he has had a really bad memory. He wasn’t hit in the head or anything either, but they told him it is a side effect of the stress. I would talk to your doctor if it’s really affecting you.
