  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I have noticed increasing problems which my research associates with normal aging (can't find keys, forgetting names, etc.); however, an incident last night has truly shaken me. I was out with my family, considering buying an outdoors toy for a grandchild when I could not visualize where I live or what my yard looks like. This lasted about 10-15 seconds.
