Caught yourself saying, “where the hell did I park the car again?”, “what did I come into this room for?”, “where did I put my keys?” of late.

I certainly did many years ago. And if like me, you didn’t think there was much you could do about it or it was going to be super complicated to work out and fix. I did nothing for a long time and suffered through it.
