Memory loss or something else?
Not too long ago, something happened that kind of disturbed me. Something that I needed for a class was not where I thought it was. Fortunately, I was able to fix the problem and make it to class on time. My mind immediately jumped to the worst possible scenario. To make matters worse, I was obsessing over the situation all day.
What actually happened?
I discovered the items that I was going to use in class were actually at home. I forgot where I placed them! My memory has more holes than swiss cheese. This should have been the obvious scenario. Why didn’t it occur to me earlier? I am still a little disturbed about my initial reaction.
