    For the last few years I've been having problems recalling actor's names while watching a movie. I guess that could be plaque build up in the brain. When I do recall it 10 to 30 minutes later I'll practice saying/thinking it in an attempt to lock it in.

    That's it? Omg Toroid, you are so lucky.

    I constantly find myself in the middle of a room wondering what the heck I am looking for.

    No warning- I don't feel any pressure and I don't feel gassy at all and yet... boom, there it is. It's so embarrassing.

    My eyesight is really getting bad.

    I get so tired if I eat anything. Even if it's something small. I still feel like I need a nap. That's another thing, I need naps now.

    There is something I wanted to say, but now I can't remember what it is...

    A couple of weeks ago I found it odd that I needed glasses to clean my glasses.

    That's why you need someone to grow old with, Toroid.

    Last week my GF and I were at one of our favorite restaurants. She asked me what our server's name was and I told her it was Lauren. I told her I remembered because she reminded me of that actress and she told me the actress's name was Lauren Hutton. I told her I always got Lauren Hutton confused with that other blonde who was in the 1970's version of King Kong with Jeff Bridges and she told me I was thinking of Jessica Lange. She told me she loved Jeff Bridges in that cult movie that involves bowling and I told her she was thinking of The Big Lebowski. No lie... that was an actual conversation.

    When you grow old with someone, each of you only has to remember half of everything. Makes life a lot easier.

    Well, I didn't say it happened daily. lol

    It just never happened when I was younger. I always knew. Now there are times when I am taken completely by surprise.

    I don't have the impact strength in my hands I once did, I still have good grip and strength but after recent hydraulic work I have two injured knuckles and a sprained finger from minor impacts on my hands from loosening tight bolts...Ten years ago if I did the same thing the injuries would have been less and would have recovered quicker...

    Grandpa's issue was hearing... he would walk around in grocery stores and let them rip...

    When finally confronted about it, he said he thought he was getting away with it, because he thought he was letting out silent ones...

    Never realised that there were so many old crumbly-geriatric coffin-dodgers on this site. Makes me feel like some kind of spring chicken.... it's great! :laugh8:

    …. But remember that you must fight against it … keep your mind alert … keep posting … you're being watched … no giving in to morning, afternoon and evening naps or before you know it ……. [​IMG]

    … anyway, bye-bye for now you wrinkly old buggers! … it's time for a lie-down. :Whistle:

    Cheers.

    A whole lot younger than the other posters on this thread by the sounds of it grandpa! lol. … i'd love to claim to be a teenager, but my username might just give it away. … [but then again...? not to some of the feeble old creakers around here … so definitely 18. :Whistle: ]


    Cheers Buddy.

    You've amassed an incredible amount of knowledge for such a young age. You must have been some kind of prodigy.

    Wouldn't worry to much. I'm 30 this year and gearing up for my fifth midlife crisis.

    Excellent. When you get to the mid-life crisis that causes you to buy a Corvette let me know - I’ll sell you mine :)
