I imagine walking into a room that I’ve walked into a hundred times before.
I no longer recognize it.
It’s as if someone has rearranged the furniture, and removed a few items in the process.
I confuse time and space.
I don’t remember important family events and even deny they happened.
Familiarity is foggy and eventually loses its place altogether.
I can’t remember what I did 15 minutes ago never mind yesterday.
I can’t find my words, like I can’t find my slippers which I believe someone has stolen.
Perhaps the same person or persons who have rearranged my furniture.
It feels like someone is stealing everything from me - my thoughts, my words, my memory.
It’s a cruel form of identity theft.
And there is no way to get it back.
A life erased.
