    I know. Today I got into an elevator and just stood there. Didn't press any buttons or anything! It's a good thing someone else got in with me and asked which floor I was going to or I might still be standing there waiting to arrive!
    I make "to do" lists for everything and leave them on the table and also mark things on my calander. My DH, btw is just as bad,so we're both always trying to remember things! The dog is not helpful with this at all!

      Did you zone out in the elevator, just not aware that you was there, and in turn, didn't react to doing anything? I think my symptoms get pretty extreme, I can relate to symptoms of dementia, I've lost time, at one place, end up elsewhere with no recollection of time in between. I've done some really weird things. My brain acts like it malfunctions. Driving to a doctor appt, I end up going the opposite way. I've ran stop lights, stop signs, (brain didn't say stop), almost hit people in the rearend, that has stopped but the fact that it even happened, is scary. I've had so many problems. My doctor said it was probably from my fatigue. In my opinion, it's a little overboard even if I have chronic fatigue.
