    I just tried to test my BS with my electric shaver. Doesn't work.
    Found I just subscribed twice to the same charity event.
    So yes, lots of memory lapses.

    Hi David, like you I had and have memory problems, obviously it caused me a lot of concern so spoke to my GP about it and he arranged an apt at a memory clinic. A very nice lady came and did a home visit and after loads of tests came to the conclusion I had ME as the memory loss did not fit any other condition.

    So well worth talking to your GP so your mind is put at rest.
