Hi everyone, I have yet to go to the doctor as I am trying to keep a record for examples of the "forgetfulness". I am 42 and have felt that my memory has been deteriorating for about a year but there is not a lot of information online about the very early stages for youngish people. An example of some of the things that I experience on a daily basis are mixing up words often. Like when talking about Easter dinner I call it Thanksgiving. Unable to finish sentences with the right words. I substitute and use descriptions. I am often told by my family that I do things that I have no recollection of doing at all and would not do such as taking off my dogs collar and then looking all over the house for it with no recollection of taking it off in the first place. No reason to do it. These things are beyond the normal misplacing in my opinion and nothing like this has happened to me in years past. Is this something that others have experienced in the beginning?
