On a more serious note (and contrary to my last blog, I take the need to aid (dare I say, cure) those with Alzheimer's very seriously), I *am* starting to worry about my memory issues. I find myself borderline ADHD lately--easily-distracted focus, short attention span, "flitting" about from task to task leaving most incomplete. And my OCD tendencies are at odds with that because it drives me crazy to leave anything unfinished. And then I find myself suddenly 'drawing a blank' as to what I was doing, or what I was about to do...
I really look forward to sleep. It seems so organized and contained. My OCD likes it, too. But instead of lying down, I get on Facebook and flit around, there, too. No plan, no focus. Like channel surfing on the computer.
I suppose now would be a good time to go to bed. Dang that tablet I got for Christmas...it's too tempting to take that to bed with me.
Maybe it's time to make the bedroom an electronics-free zone. Except for the TV. I need that for the soundscapes music channel that I can play in the background to mask my tinnitus. And my smartphone that serves as my alarm clock. That has a browser. That I can use to surf Facebook. Argh!
I don't think I'll be getting up at 5 tomorrow.
