  3. I sadly lost a ton of memory due to a traumatic brain injury, but I always say it’s almost better now due (not really but maybe day to day now) to the tools and techniques I have learned to support my memory daily since I don’t remember much easily. My short term memory was significantly impaired, long term is spotty. I wrote a blog post about it.
