memory loss ?????
I forget...........

really though -
once I'm a few weeks into a cluster, short term memory goes straight to hell

I'm talking about 3 trips to the kitchen before I remember I'm after a drink of water, then leave the faucet running when I do get it

have learned I must be VERY careful with our woodstoves & when cooking
have started more than one chimney fire by forgetting to back the damper down after it gets going
can't tell you how many times the smoke detector has informed me I forgot I was cooking hot dogs for lunch ...AGAIN

then the spaciness sets in

wife says I often just stand staring into space
aware of it myself

my own feeling is that these are just expectable sideeffects of the severe mental and physical fatigue that comes along with a sustained cluster

I carry 3x5 cards in my shirt pocket and write EVERYTHING down

don't worry about it but do give some thought to things that need close watching (like my wood stoves) so you don't get in a jam
