The medications I take for my bipolar leave me with a severely impaired memory. On the bright side, I can watch the same movie over and over again as if I were watching it for the first time. I never hold a grudge because I can never remember the details of the argument in the first place. I am the epitome of forgive and, uhmmm, uhhh, sorry I forget what I was talking about.
Those people who repeatedly repeat themselves? You know the ones, telling those same old stories in boring repetition? Bring it on, ‘cos I didn’t remember it the first time. Books! I never have to buy new ones. I reread what I’ve got again and again ‘cos…… don’t remember!
We may hate having to look for them, but sometimes when we do, it can cast a lighter shadow on our lives. What are some of your silver linings?
