Me: I don’t need to write it down.  I’ll remember it.

Narrator: She would not remember.  In fact, she immediately forgot what ‘it’ even was.

I love the thought of keeping a journal or a to-do list; but alas I forget about them after a day or so.  Some would say I need to be more disciplined and I would have to agree with that to a degree.  I have found in dealing with any illness it is so important to document, document, document!!  How do we figure out a trigger without having documented the previous occasions.  Such as with a migraine how can we figure out if a certain food is causing problems if we forget to document our food intake?  I guess I am preaching to myself because like the narrator said, I forgot what ‘it’ even was!!
