There was a time when I could remember a lot of things just like that! You could say I had them at my fingertips. Phone numbers, addresses, names of distant relatives, I could recall them all.
Then my thyroid started to act up. Or you can say, it gave up and my memory because absolutely abysmal. I would buy stuff and then forget about it and buy some more, like groceries or toiletries. It became very worrying and when I had a through check-up, it all was contributed to my hypothyroidism.
I am on medication for last 22 years but there are big chunks of my memory which are lost to me. I don’t say lost forever because one never knows when they may surface up!
This faulty memory has some advantages too. If someone ( usually a family member) accuses me of something I failed to do in the long distant past, or did something wrong, I can say with a clear conscience that I just don’t remember any such incident.
Now I have my phone and Google at my fingertips! Answer to everything one wants to know.
