I must have been sleep walking doing my activities of daily living

First I must put a disclaimer on this. This post may be somewhat distasteful to some readers. If you are offended by the mention of personal functions, read no further and save your comments if they are going to be rude. This is not meant to offend. This really bothers me. Soooo I must be losing it. Something so strange happened to me, because I have no memory of it. I remember going to the refrigerator to get a glycerin suppository. I went to the bathroom with my phone like always. I play spider solitaire when I have to go, because I can't relax enough to go if I don't. Well, I remember inserting the suppository and playing spider solitaire, but have no memory of using the bathroom. No one else used it, so it had to be me. It wasn't flushed and it grossed me out... but it was ME. I have to be sleepwalking or going crazy with my memory. Has anyone here ever done something so routine that you have no memory of it? This is so strange to me. What are your thoughts.

Oh my. Isn't it part of our aging memory? Having gaps for sometimes? I think I have skipped some works that should be done in the bathroom too. But I think too that it is not as gross as that of your story. If it's only you in your house, nothing to worry about the mess. But if you're living else with somebody, better watch out your back before leaving the bathroom.

We have two bathrooms. I have mine and my daughter and her hubby have theirs, so there is not much traffic to my bathroom by other people. My daughter will use it if she has to go in a hurry and can't get to hers. Mine is closer to the family room. I do have memory problems, but this has never happened to me before. I couldn't believe I did that, because it just isn't me.

Hmmm... I don't know what to say, I think you've mentioned memory problems before, or sleepwalking, or both. Be sure to mention it to your doctor next time you're there, especially if it happens again. Make a note of it before you forget.
