Losing time

I wonder if I lose more time that I tend to realise. Lately I seem to be incapable of remembering to drink my tea before it goes cold. Ad is very good at making me tea; he's also become very good at reminding me that he's made me tea when it's sitting right next to me. Another thing I've noticed in recent months is that I am also almost incapable of making toast without burning it. The only way for success is to stand over it staring at the bread. If I try to multitask, without fail I will end up nearly setting fire to the house. Is it because I am dissociating and time is jumping on or am I just a fluff head?

Fluffhead most certainly. That is the technical term for having a dissociative disorder. I suffer from the inability to consume anything unless I drink it in one setting, as I forget.

I have a chair next to the oven so I can sit and watch the baking until it's done. Even timers can be ignored.

Oh, how we cope.

He he, well I'm glad it's not just me! I have been known to put the hob on for lunch and then completely forget I had even started preparing food, going out for the afternoon, only to remember hours later that I a) hadn't eaten any lunch and b) left the pan on the hob with the heat on. It's a wonder my house is still standing and that I'm not half the size I am!
