Not a topic of general interest as people tend to shy away from issues of mental health.
For many years, I have had occasions when I lose a day in a month, at that rate it is not serious, but when I lose two days in a week the matter goes up many notches on the scale of priority.
I have a scan booked for next month, but I am considering cancelling the appointment. Not because I am scared of finding out I have Alzheimer's disease, or because I am concerned on the effect it will have for the family knowing what lies ahead for us.
I am concerned that after all the bad that has happened/is happening in my life this year, this will tip the balance for me.
I put the memory losses down to increased stress caused by the loss of my disability allowance this month.
