    At least there might be a medical reason for your behavior.

I have always had difficulties remember certain names like .... uh ... I forgot what it is called now, and I can't find words or correct spelling of them when I'm having a migraine head-ache, although I almost never get migraine head-aches any longer. No, I don't think that I'm experiencing any symptoms but I guess if I were I wouldn't even know it.
    I have spent a lifetime having trouble remembering names, it's insulting to let somebody think they are forgettable, but it extends to my own kids and grand children, calling them a series of names before happening across the right one.........it is a joke now, but is it funny ? I am however wary of people that you meet once and can recall your name years afterward........that is a bit.......creepy.
    I am able to recognise a large amount of records from years ago within a few beats of the introduction.........and that too is .......creepy.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    You've pretty much describe me perfectly! I too get worried about people who remember my name so easily. After several years abroad in Africa, Asia, Australia, and north America I returned home and promptly went to job services to find employment. The guy at the desk greeted me and asked if I still lived on Engelbrektsgatan! He not only remembered my name but even the address and number I had so many years before! I don't think he's human! But yes, just the first few notes of a recording from the late 50's and all through the 60's and I'm right on queue with the melody, lyrics and the background instrumental.

    What's wrong with us?

    Interesting study

    Gout linked to lower chances of developing Alzheimer's disease | Science Codex
    Gout appears to have a protective effect for the brain, possibly thanks to uric acid, the chemical in a person's blood that can crystallize, leading to gout, said a team of researchers from north America.
    Gout, the most common inflammatory arthritis, is linked to a higher risk of heart and kidney problems and their resulting health issues, but previous studies have theorised that the antioxidant properties of uric acid may protect against the development or progression of neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's disease (PD).
    Researchers led by the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy, and Immunology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and at Boston University Medical Center, in Boston, USA, set out to evaluate the potential impact of gout on the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD) amongst the general population.
    So check your feet; are they scaly and itchy (mine are)? That could be a sign of resistance against Alzheimer's.

    My mothers was very much like this as well. She lived to 93 years of age and was quite lucid until her death

    Run around barefoot.

    Funny. That's the same thing Zola Budd said to me.
