I have a question about my failing memory. I have done tests with my GP to no avail. I am being told that I have GAD (generalised anxiety disorder. I know that my brain isn't what it used to be and I accept that at 71 yrs of age that it happens, but this is ridiculous!! I forget what I've done 30 seconds ago and am in a state of confusion all the time.. can't remember famous people's names or even people I have known for years. Please could someone tell me.. is this the beginning of the end????
