Don't panic. Stress can be a huge culprit when it comes to memory
problems, as can medications, infections and sleep deprivation. So it's
important to take a realistic look at your situation. If you always mess up when you balance your checkbook, you
probably shouldn't be too concerned if you do it again. However, if you
are an accountant and the numbers no longer make sense, then it's time
to consider a checkup.
The same thing goes for activities like cooking. If you are a
casual cook but your meals aren't as tasty as usual, it's probably just
because you are rushing and not paying attention. Maybe you're tired or
distracted by your care receiver's health. But if cooking is your major
form of relaxation, and you find creative joy in making meals, yet are
habitually messing them up, you may want to question why.
