Memory loss



What illnesses can cause memory loss besides alzheimers?
I keep experiencing memory loss within seconds of being told something
and then the person will repeat what they said sometimes 3 times
before I'm able to remember it.  This doesn't happen all the time.
This will occur periodically throughout the day.  
Is there anything to help with this?

10/30/07 -  TIME MARCHES ON

Oct 31, 2007 - 1 comments

Day is done, gone the sun, from hills, from the lakes, from the sky, all is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
I love that poem.  I'm reminded that I'm not alone, even though at times I may feel that I am. Now here's
one of my own.

                            "Baby Bird"


He guides me with his outstretched arms............my father watches over.
With sweet surrender.........there's no harm.........while father watches over.
To which our love.............is steadfast born..........our father watches over.
The time is come.............the end is here............my father bows to pray.
At last they know............who father is................but father's went away.
The trumpet sounds.........their filled with fear.......the father's by my side.
They cry aloud................for what he'd done........but father did not hide.
He laid his life.................upon a cross...............then father rent the veil.
While lifting up................his form like none........my father sent great hail.
Atop the mountain...........gathered they..............thy father's army strong.
When all at once.............the time stood still.......and father sang his song.
Little child........oh little child...........my precious darling one.........
What have they done........to dim you heart......that once shown like the sun.
My baby bird.........sweet baby bird...........all this is made for thee......
Open your heart..........and enter in.................to my eternity.
My little girl.........whom I did choose.............before was in a womb....
To be the one............to set me free............or seal me in a tomb.
You've suffered great...............in pain did wait.......as I instructed so.......
They knew you not.............in pride they fought.......but now it's time to go.
No tomb for you...............could ever hold..........the light that shines within.
For it is I......................you hid inside...............and death did you befriend.
The battles won...........your heart is free............as death does love you true...
For when there's love.........all else is gone.........and life comes back to you.
In the garden..................as we walk.................his heart so gentle and kind...
Forever filled with life am I.................................twas brother I did find.
Seeing me now..........they remember not..........the fear I had to face....
Being one with God.........opening the tomb........and finishing the race.
Blessed be the journey.........................that has already come......
And know they not........for their sakes now.........that I've already run.
Amen & Amen

Insomnia



Well, so far this is the second night in the past three weeks that I've stayed up all night.........trying to figure out something to do since I began taking the Lyrica and Zanaflex.
Most nights I get between 2-4 hours of sleep.  Once in a while on the rare occasion I get 6.
Has anyone else had this side effect from one of these or them both combined?
So far I haven't had any relief from the pain, but now I get to never sleep and on top of that ..........oh yes the wonderful blues and then combine with that........I'm sad because I'm so arroused all the time.  I had no idea Lyrica was like viagra.........what's going on?  
So now here I am up all night with my hands and feet swollen......legs propped up on the chair in pain and having the choices of staring at the pc, tv or walls...........while being sad and arroused........insanity is what this should be called.  I'm gonna tell you what the name Lyrica means while I've got so much time on my hands as the whole world sleeps.  Hmmmmmm.  
Top ten reasons to take ..........LYRICA.........

1)  L-let......Y-yourself........R-realize................I-insomnia.......C-cranky..................A-a--hole
2)  L-lust....Y-your.............R-real....................I- i...................C-cried...................A-aloud
3)  L-like....Y-you..............R-run.....................I-into...............C-Carey Grant.........A-always
4)  L-last....Y-years...........R-rest....................I-is..................C-carried.................A-away
5)  L-look...Y-you..............R-realize................I-it...................C-costs..................A-alot
6)  L-left.....Y-your.............R-red bra...............I-in..................C-Charlie's..............Astrovan
7)  L-little...Y-you"d...........R-remember...........I-in..................C-case...................A-asked
8)  L-late....Y-yesterday.....R-ran.....................I-into................C-Charlie................A-again

10)L-later....Y-you'll............R-run....................I-inside............C-crying.................A-again

Oh well...........I was bored........what else can I say.........oh I know ..........how did you sleep last night?
