"This is my life, man."
I hear you, bro. 👊🏻
This week I've forgotten to attend a birthday party (and when the person called to ask where I was I literally had no recollection of being invited), I failed to respond to an urgent, time-sensitive email (because I responded in my head and thought that would be sufficient), and I had a five-minute conversation with someone I've never seen before in my life (but who knew enough facts about my life that she must be a reasonably good friend or at least an acquaintance).
Alzheimer's or motherhood?
