I ask myself

As I sit here, thinking, and asking myself where did I put the batteries, I soon start to wonder what it was like when I remembered both the little things and the big things in life.  Am I demented? I do not think that I am but I am watching for various triggers that might tell me for sure.  I understand dementia from dealing with a family member some years ago.  As for the batteries, I know where the full sleeves are so I will just grab another one and try and remember where they are when I take out two.
