Dear all, I wonder if you could advise? I am a 43yr old mother of 3 young children. I am a full time primary school teacher. I am telling you all of this info because when I had concerns about my memory when I was in my 30's my GP she said it is no wonder you are all of the above you have a lot on your plate. But my maternal grandmother had alzheimer's and 2 of her daughters my aunts. I have always had a bad memory. It is a standing joke amongst my siblings that there is no point asking me about people I went to school with, memories from our childhood etc. I have learnt to live with this and accept it. I rely heavily on my husband to fill in the gaps, that is fine if he was around then. I got a fright last wekk when in the middle of a lesson I totally forgot which hand was which whilst teaching the clock to my class. I tried and tried but just could not remember. I had to go and look it up! I was shocked and upset by this as I have not experienced this level before. I know I foget things so I try and write as much down as I can but sometimes I lose my lists! I think I should go back to the GP but am concerned that they will think I am a Hypocondriac. Any suggestions?
