Living with short-term memory loss

I just caught myself in the fourth loop of deciding I needed a paper towel to clean excess oil from potatoes I was preparing to cook, then discovering there were no paper towels, then, no longer remembering why I was looking for paper towels, trying to think of something profitable I could do to help prepare the meal. Then I thought the potatoes need to be prepared... (loop again).

Finally, Jonath
an (my son) interrupted me before I left to look for paper towels, asking "where are the paper towels?" With the loop broken, I was able to think about his question, and I said, they must still be in the back of the car. (They had fallen from where they were put in the car, and were hidden under a seat.) Now, all is well, until the next episode of "Living with short-term memory loss."

I am developing a prototype resources website at Please review my plans and make suggestions.

I welcome comments that can help make this site more helpful to those experiencing similar difficulties, or for those friends, family, and professionals who take care of bicycle injury / brain trauma.victims.

Since I want this site to be helpful to victims, I reserve the right to edit comments if they seem to conflict with that goal.

Helpful comments would include corrections of false information, references to local services that relate to my posts, or comments that help me to keep spelling, grammar, and word-choices appropriate and correct. As a brain injury victim, I depend on others to insure accuracy and to spot the kinds of errors that I may not recognize. Please feel welcome to contribute your expertise to make this site effective!
