Fortunately, well before I found out I have Lupus, I had gotten into some very good habits regarding the stuff I use all the time, my cell phone, hats, etc. I have places where I put them, and try really hard to always put things back. Not easy when my husband is the opposite of organized, and never puts anything back. Then, I can never remember if he took the screwdriver and lost it, or if I did? <VBG>
If you work at it very hard, maybe you can get into habits of organization that can help you out. Long term memory isn't as much of a problem, so eventually your habits will go long term, and you can kind of guide yourself with that.
I didn't want to admit it, but I will. I'm finding myself forgetting
the little things alot more. Like.. Where's my keys, where did I park.
I was just diagnose with Lupus not long ago. Is this part it?
