I just looked up “a fear of forgetting” and found this, which I hope I don’t forget.
I have a fear of forgetting
to take my medicine, especially my Coumadin,
how to operate my car whenever I bring it in for it’s yearly inspection,
other important things I need to do at infrequent intervals,
something I’m going to need whenever I leave the house,
how to do a therapy group in person (which I’m going to do this month for the first time since the pandemic started), and
how to reassure myself and calm myself down when I’m having fears.
I also have a fear of being forgotten, so maybe I really do have (hold on, what’s the name again?) ….athazagoraphobia!
I actually don’t have a fear of forgetting that name, because I can always look it up again.
I tell my patients — who often have a fear of forgetting, especially as they age — that anxiety makes us more forgetful and that forgetting things is often normal. For example, as we age, we often have trouble retrieving nouns and names. And althazagoraphobia is a noun and a name.
Oooops! So close …. it’s athazagoraphobia.
Do you see the fear of forgetting in any of my images for today?
I have a fear of forgetting to share the National Days on Twitter, but so far so good.

I have no fear if forgetting to thank all those who help me create these daily posts, including YOU!
That “rough seas” sign showed up for the first time yesterday in my neighborhood, which is by the sea. Our seas are blessedly calm this morning, as I read about the rough seas in the rest of the world.
I do believe that rough seas make good sailors, but they also make people sick. I hope we can navigate our way to calming the rough seas before it’s too late.

Rough seas make the Daily Bitch even bitchier.

Thanks to all who navigated their way through rough seas to be here, now.
Honestly, I’ve been having trouble deciding what to call today’s post.
Honestly, I often take my cues from the Daily Bitch Calendar.
Honestly, I don’t expect to outlive my dear husband Michael, because I’m 10 years older than he is and I have complicated medical issues. Honestly, Michael keeps telling me that I’m going to outlive him and, honestly, I prefer to focus on the wonderful moments we are sharing with each other now.
Honestly, today is the 12th anniversary of our first encounter online through the dating app OkCupid.
Honestly, I’ve preserved and printed out all the messages Michael and I exchanged online before we met in person on Halloween, 2010. Honestly, I think that collection would make a great epistolary novel.
Honestly, I don’t observe Jewish holidays any more but I do want to wish everyone who celebrates them a Happy New Year today.
Honestly, I’m relieved that my INR is in a safer range, as of this morning.
Honestly, sometimes life is a little overwhelming.
Honestly, these are all the other images I have to share with you now.
Honestly, for me, every day has to be Situational Awareness Day.
Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “honestly.”
While preparing for today’s blog post, I came across the term “confetti moments” and assumed I knew what that meant.
To me, “confetti moments” are when you choose to celebrate …
something you’ve accomplished,
somebody/something you love, or
just being alive.
I remember moments when I would say this to patients who had good news to report: “I wish I had some confetti I could throw right now!” I even fantasized about inventing a reusable confetti-moment device that threw confetti attached to invisible, retractable strings.
In a day filled with confetti moments yesterday, my husband Michael and I had one last night when my car wouldn’t start after we had dinner out at a favorite restaurant. Working together, we figured out the problem and easily fixed it! 🎉
