Memory problems and your feelings

Everyone reacts differently to memory problems. It’s normal to get frustrated or worried, or lose self-confidence.

You may find the following tips helpful.

  • Talk to others, such as friends, family or other people experiencing memory problems. They might suggest helpful ways of thinking, and you may be able to find solutions together.
  • Do the things that you’re comfortable with. Focus on memory problems that are having a real impact on your life and that happen more often, such as often misplacing items like a mobile phone.
  • Try to focus on the things you can remember and can do. You may well have a good memory of events from many years ago. There will still be many things you are able to do that you learned in the past.
