dissociation, severe memory problems, venting about making memory issues a joke 

for as much as i lightly joke about my memory being really shit, i wish it wasn't so common for people without diagnosable memory problems to apologize and joke about how poor their memories are.

Because then when i say my memory is bad, or i can't remember last week, I really mean it. I literally have to strain to recall any of what happened just last week. Sometimes I don't remember 2 days ago. Sometimes I wonder if joking about it is my way of subconsciously coping with the background knowledge that i have actual memory problems that negatively impact my life and relationships with others and I don't think about the severity because it would make me more upset than i can handle on a regular basis. ( :

Which is probably part of why i continue to dissociate my daily life memories into the garbage :x
