For me, it is not that I forget future plans when I think about them. It is that it is so easy to forget to think about “what else” is supposed to be happening instead of getting lost in the “now”.
My TBI has greatly accelerated my hyper vigilance that spawned from my Combat/War PTSD. Now, I am so driven to be alert and engaged in what is happening around me right now I get consumed by it and forget to even consider “isn’t there something I’m supposed to doing”.
It is a state of failure caused by sweeping moments of confusion. I wonder if I am alone in this or do other people also experience much like this. I would dearly love to talk to people who have overcome such difficulties. Their guidance would be great to have and share with others.
