I reminded myself yesterday that I need to post about my failing memory but I forgot. So I must do so now while I still remember it.

Of late, my memory of names e.g. plants, Hollywood actors and actresses, was a challenge to me because I managed to forget some of the big names, especially if I did not come across them recently. I have been joking with friends and colleagues that my memory space is limited and cannot be upgraded like a computer. When a new name enters my brain, an older one exits. And this is definitely not a good sign. How can I take such a long time to remember the names? And how can I not even recall some of the names after more than 24 hours even with some clues thrown in?

If this continues, I am doomed to suffer from early dementia.
