However, Memory raises its little head, yet once again. Wilma, my occupational therapist, has noted that at the beginning of our sessions, I can come in quite excited and start blurting out whatever is on my mind at the time without giving it a bit of a preface. I don't mean to be rude and I am generally quite happy and excited to see her and there has been a lot going on. However, I can see that it might be a bit off putting to my "social partner" if they don't have a certain space for an introduction and a departure.
Wilma thinks that this could be a bit of a working memory issue. I just don't have a lot of space in my memory box and that when I have things I really want to remember to tell her that I just have to blurt it out before I forget it. It's kind of like the kid who has to go to the bathroom and starts hopping up and down going OOOH, OOOH, OOOHH, I GOTTA GO!!! It's like OOOH, OOOH, OOOHH, I gotta say this before I forget it!!!
There are some compensations I can learn to make it easier on the people around me and maybe even myself. But for right now, we have agreed that I am going to take a couple weeks and try and observe my behavior a bit and see under what conditions this behavior arises.
