It can be a demon at interviews when searching for employment. Unfortunately, memory loss can soak up your seconds and status as you try to complete tasks in day-to-day life. I’ve been in many daunting situations before. I’ve forgotten many passwords and appointment times. I’ve forgotten the names of people I don’t…
