    I know I sometimes have a bad memory and can't remember what I said, but I think that's probably because of some things that happened to me in the past, which effected some of my short term memory.

    But I can remember some things in the past especially along time ago.

    But, what's your memory like? Do you have a tough time remembering things?

    I have an extremely good memory of things that happened a long time ago, such as I may remember my Kindergarten graduation (wow that is a long time ago) compared to something I ate yesterday XD

    Wow cpvr, we are memory twins >W>

    Not the greatest. Absentmindedness and forgetfulness seem to be strong suits of mine. It can be rather vexing thinking of something important and then hopelessly trying to remember it just a few moments later.

    Things that I want to remember, I'll remember forever. Things I don't want to remember, I'll forget instantly :(

    If college has taught me anything ... it's that I'm capable of memorizing a plethora of information for about an hour.

    Beyond that ... well, I can't remember.

    I have short-term memory lost, or that's what my family says.

    But I am able to remember random little bits of detail/conversations and things in the past if I get a prompt or something, like if you say "bus" I know that one 410 bus. o-o And nothing else. I usually keep saying "oh remember when-!" For school I'm not worried if I forget anything at the moment.. I'll always remember something if I can just trace back to the subject ^o^ But yeah there are some times when I just fail to remember something. Usually a word or a phrase.

    I have really good memory. :c I'm blessed to say I remember things easily and for a very long time.

    For instance, I remember distinct things from my childhood. I remember when I was four. I remember when I was ten. I remember when I was twelve.

    It's good but sometimes I remember things I want to forget. It can seriously hurt sometimes.

    I have a good memory. I tend to remember most things, somethings in very good detail. I think I have more of a photographic memory.

    I have the same exact thing. o_O; Weird. Isn't it inconvenient when you want to forget something but can't? -_- I don't mean negative, I mean useless information that confuses other situations thanks to deja vu.

    My memory is only good sometimes. Those ECT treatments I took a long time ago for my Bipolar really screwed with my short term memory, but its getting better.:style

    Yup. It was only supposed to be short-term, but it turned into long-term effects because of how many ECT treatments I had to go through.

    Yeah, that is a very common side effect of ECTs. It has been that way for years.

    You do eventually start to gain your memory back, but if anything freaky goes wrong, do tell your doctor. ECTs are certainly not perfect..

    Ya, you're right. My memory has slowly been getting better though, so I'm content with my memory currently. I didn't think it would have long term effects though, I'm just glad I've been healthy and haven't had to get those done on me again.
