Forgetting things when stressed.
« on: June 21, 2011, 07:33:47 PM »
My father woke up out of bed, and he walked to me it was 12:00AM and he told me if my cousin left yet, but the thing is he said my other cousins name. He confused the two, due to something this small and this stupid it's been causing me anxiety again thinking he has alhzeimers. I believe he also had something to drink, can stress make you forget things? i am pretty sure my father has a lot to worry about

I accidentally will use the wrong word/name/etc all the time.  Its not abnormal, sometimes the lines in your brain just get crossed.

I don't remember my father doing this, maybe it's because he didn't have much to worry about back then.

it is also common to be still in part of dream land and confused

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.

When someone is stressed, it is highly likely that they will forget things.  Usually their mind is preocuppied with the problem that is causing them stress.  Sometimes, even in normal, everyday situations, some can forget things.  Forgetfulness is common weather stressed or not!

It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.
 
- Anthony Robbins
