Hello I am a 45 year old married, qualified sign language interpreting male. For some time now my family have noticed my inability to remember relatively recent significant events in our lives without the aid of photographs/film which I would normally be expected to remember without such aids. It has also become apparent that I have an over reliance upon my sat nav for journeys that I should be familiar with and to locations that I am reliably informed have attended in the past. Initially I put this down to stress and so have taken measures to reduce my stress levels but my very supportive wife still complains that having discussions over relatively recent past shared experiences is becoming exceptionally difficult. I have had various tests and have drawn a blank. I have however retained the skils of remembering passwords, my own mobile number and security numbers and can still play chess. Therefore without a diagnosis and with certain skills still in place I would like to know if all this is simply an allusion and I am simply going crazy or there is indeed something wrong with me. Therefore I have recent started to keep a diary which seems to collate entries on a daily basis. The reason for including my profession in my introduction is to highlight the fact that language is my business and without it I am becoming concerned that in the future I won't have a business. I am very very much aware that there are millions of people worse off than I am to the point that it feels embarrassing and almost egotistical to even be writing this so make of it what you will. Thank you for your time.
