Default Anyone else suffer from CRS ? Is there a cure?

CRS - Can't remember SH$T !
Seriously, I'm 53 and noticed a few years ago that I can't recall sh$t when needed, but if i wait 5-15 minutes it pops in my head.
I also know, that for my entire life I can't recall scenes from movies, yet all my friends can recite lines as if they were written on paper.
But, If a customer calls from 5-10 years ago, I can remember them and the layout of the house.
My excuse to my wife, is that I only remember important SH$T, not what I ate on our 1st date. LOL

Is there a cure?

I suffer from CRS as well. It always amazes me how some people can remember names, movies and such. My wife and I were watching Halloween Hubie the other night and could not remember Rob Schneider's name. Had to IMDB it. Maybe more thinking fluid is needed (beer).

No cure that I'm aware of, but I did find a treatment that works for me, I rely on the memory of my wife, and she has enough capacity in her memory for both of us

What I cannot remember apparently is not important enough for me to remember
I am sticking to that

A side effect of a medication I must take daily memory loss (I’m sure all the LSD, meth and coke when I was younger didn’t help). Man it’s a struggle and I’m only 43. Definitely affects my job performance.

anybody ever try Alpha Brain or Fish Protien or any of the like?

I can remember the lyrics to a song I heard once in 1982 but put something down and five minutes later can’t find it even though I haven’t left the immediate vicinity. My wife still remembers shit I “supposedly” said 10 years ago ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's not your problem. I know a guy that does brain research and he said that your short-term memory is 12 seconds. It's not your age it's normal.

Especially if you were wrong in the first place.

I still remember the combo for the lock I had in boot camp in '68. 43-26-89, so if you ever find my lock, that's the combo

Back in the 90's I had a ball cap that had CRS on it. I've always had a problem remembering peoples names, so I used to keep a notebook and wrote down the names of people and where I met them and what it was about. Can't find the notebook. I have recently been scanning a lot of photographs I took of my last year with the Coast Guard before I retired. But most of the people in the photos, I can't remember their names. I do ok with faces. "oh Yeah, I know him/her. but not the names. It's really frustrating. Unfortunately my wife never met many of the people, or she could tell me who they are!

CRS is a real pain.

CRS is a common complaint once we reach middle age. There are normal changes in our brains that occur as we age, which affect memory storage and recall. Stress is an additional factor affecting memory.

Your best chance for long term health, including cognitive health, is to have a healthy diet, exercise, get enough sleep, minimize stress, and eliminate unhealthy habits (especially smoking, alcohol, and drugs). Be sure to address medical conditions that can affect cognitive health, including high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.
