Can anyone offer reassurance? I am just over 60 and the last couple of days have worried I am going senile. I suffer from anxiety so maybe I am over worrying, but do any of you do things that make you wonder?
One example was this morning when I went upstairs and misheard the radio presenter say it was 8.25. 'Surely not,' I thought, it must be 7.25 but that can't be right it's definitely later than that.' So I checked the time and it was 8.05, not 25. Then my husband called up the stairs to say, 'Can the workmen come up and get started?' and I said 'but it's not 8 o'clock yet. Only half 7' - even though I'd just found out the correct time.
I did another thing the day before that set me worrying. My mother in law has just been told she has the start of dementia but she says really 'wrong' things.
Please don't say 'If you are worried, see your doctor or my anxious mind will translate that to: 'You are definitely up the creek, seek help now!'
Just wanted to know if other people did these things too?
