Forgetting that you forget

I think I'm on to something...
I've noticed, when I get busy at work or with errands - I actually forget that i could miseead and forget things

i have to set up the craziest reminders, to remember some of the most basic things, because what good is alisr if you forget to look at it...?

Re: Forgetting that you forget

The real problem, is at work when I'm having a good day (relatively organised AND external factors working out), I honestly will *forget* that i have problems with my short term memory; so i just keep working and everything's fine and then 15 min later, I've sent email with wrong dates and mis-named scanned documents, etc.
