Hang in, I know how you feel. It is the same at my house. But I wouldn't know where to go. I am 71, married 41 years, CFS over 20 years. Try making notes, carry a little notebook if you have trouble remembering. Have you tried Gingo ? Start to do puzzles and anything else to help you remember. Maybe someone you know could help you find books to improve memory or tricks to use. God bless you and may help come your way.
