Thursday April 27, 2023 (Journal Entry)
My children are concerned about my memory (at least a portion of it). I don’t discount this. It could very well be. However, all the tests so far have been unremarkable and the Neurologist is unable to make any diagnosis. It could be that I am just a very internal person and external events don’t make all that much of an impression on me. After a lifetime of looking inwards, it might be hard to formulate impressions/memories from external events. Who knows. At any rate, the Neurologist gave me a clean bill of health (in-so-far as she was able). I thought this particular comment from her was worth sharing (because I find it flattering)…
“He is embarking on a solo cycle across the country, averaging 60 miles/day. He manages all IADL/ADLs. He is extremely well organized.”
Well shit. If you are “extremely well organized” you don’t need a memory!
