For the past 5 years, I have realised my husband has surprisingly bad memeory with all sorts of things to the point that i have to repeat everything 4 to 5 times. I didnt think much of that except for bad memeory. However, somethingelse is becoming very apparent where he says things and uses the wrong words instead of what he means. for example he'll say "end of the season", where he means "end of the episode", or "I have to go on friday", where he means "saturday" ? and straight after when I ask him "ok friday" he'll say "no i said saturday" ! I am going crazy because he wont accept there is anything wrong and that I'm not listening. I have even tried recording our conversations so he can hear it out for himself but he refuses to hear himself. please help, am I dramatising or are these symptoms more relevant to something worth checking out?

  • Thanks blaze, cell phones: yes, cordless phones: yes, wifi router: yesHe has been in IT (programming, databases, business analyst) for the past 15 years. but he recently started his own IT recruitment business from home, hosting his own website which means servers, computers, wireless and adsl modems,etc. he has always had short term memory loss but it has got worse over the years and his mixing up of words in everyday conversations is getting more apparent.How did you go about undrestanding about your case without denying it? because he seems like he doesnt want to know there is anything wrong.
