  • he needs to write everything down in a little notebook and every morning read through it ,even a few times a day ! he should get testing done to see why he is forgetting things!

  • I think I would take away all of the bill paying and make sure that you pay them yourself. I don't trust my husband to remember to pay anything. I doubt that there is anything wrong mentally other than he is forgetful. Sounds like a guy that is just not good at things like that. Some guys outgrow it and other do not. You just have to learn to work around it. Try to make things full proof for him and reminders in all different places. Park of remembering things is actually caring about them and I am guessing that he just does not care or he would be working on a solution himself.

  • Stroke victims have mild Alzheimer symptoms -forgetting things, getting lost, or getting lost in time I would talk to the doctor not go to the ER first....... It could be something as simple as adult ADD. Thoughts are scattered and they can't keep them straight.. Good luck!

  • Oh sorry! I really don't want to scare you.
    it could be stress. stress can cause many different symptoms too..........

  • Dont let him cary credit cards, or much cash. Buy a pre-pay cheap phone. Limit your losses.
