Ok oregonhomestead...we're on the trail together! Lol. I laugh now but when it happened to me, just last month I freaked out and cried a good 10 minutes. I drove to one doctors office and realized I was at the wrong place when I saw the building. Only I couldn't remember the docs name where I was, and worse where I was suppose to be going. That was my 3-4th episode of getting lost in transit. Last week I got out of my car, locking as I went by the door lock, and realized my keys were still in the ignition and the motor was running. Last month i thought i paid all the bills and failed to pay any. Then i paid one 3x. I havent been able to balance a statement the first time in 5 months.
These issues started for me 4-5 years ago and are getting worse each time. I've stopped worrying "what's wrong with me?" It is whatever it is, and I'm working around it. All our bills are now auto draft. Not sure how I'm going to solve the driving lost issue. Maybe those chauffer-less cars will be available real soon!

Yep, happened to me too. One time I went to the wrong building and one time on the wrong day. Right there with you!!!

I am planning on talking to my primary care doc about a diagnosis and disability today. Any suggestions from anyone? I have Costcochrronditis and Barrett's esophagus as well as some weird symptoms including sore skin and other invisible sensations, esophageal spasms, unexplained pain in my arms and above my ankles. Anxiety, and a few other strange issues

Had to pull up my list and include head tremors and tinnitis. I guess I better add memory problems to that list!
