The thing I fear most is losing my memories and my mind. I know that something is different. Words, names, places, and people. Everything is harder to find, it's slowly slipping away. I hope it's just a normal part of aging, but either way, it still scares the heck out of me. Words, discussions, and stories, is who I am. Without my own "history," in my own mind, I'll have nothing.

I'm frantic about getting it all down in writing and hope I don't run out of time. I feel that I've forgotten a lot of my "life" stories already, but I don't know what they were.

I'm going through the same thing, but I'm only 16 and losing my memory. It's always a blessing when someone reminds me of something that made me happy I have forgotten about. I'm just afraid I am missing out on so much more that I have blocked out and cannot remember.
