Hello all- I was diagnosed with MCI at age 62 after beginning to realize I was misplacing things, repeating myself, getting frustrated with my husband when he would way 'you already told me that', not wanting to socialize with friends for fear they would think 'what is wrong with her'. My PCP referred me to a Neurologist who did a battery of tests and she advised me I had MCI. Actually, she called it early onset memory loss. Symptoms that I have are walking into a room to get something and not remembering what I wanted to get. Later I remember and go get it. I have been repeating things to my husband and he gets frustrated and says 'you already told me that'. I then get frustrated and leave the room. I enjoy reading books but can't recall what I read so I go back a few pages and then pick up where I left off. I was also able to retire at 62. I had been an Administrator for a large medical practice so I was very happy to take an early retirement before signs started showing up. To make a long story short, when I feel myself getting frustrated I go to a quite spot and do deep breathing exercises and I calm down. I do enjoy reading the articles on MCI as they give me encouragement and know that I am not alone. So that is MCI in a nutshell for me.
