The other day, I discovered a lump on the back of my head. To the left of the spot where the head meets the neck. A little tender to touch. I don’t even remember bumping my head. I was admittedly worried. Was this why it has been hard to remember things? I explained to the good doctor what has been happening to me.
Turns out, it was just an activated lymph node on the base of my skull. Have I been sick he asked? Yes. As for the memory, he asked me if I had been stressed. If I have not been sleeping. All of the above I told him. Well. I guess we have found our problem. Apparently stress and lack of sleep equate to poor memory retention.
So doctor’s orders. I am to get more sleep and stress less. That sounds good to me.
