Birthday amnesia
« on: March 21, 2018, 12:19:32 AM »
I can't remember peoples birthdays.

I don't remember really bad anniversaries when they come round either so I wonder if I have calendar amnesia or something.

It could be protective but it annoys people.

I forget my own birthday, and my dads which is on the same day......

Anyone else experience this? Or envy it? Its pretty strong, like I refuse to remember at some level, more than forgetfulness.

hey rain! I experience this too. calendar amnesia is probably a good name for it! I'm always a day off (early or late) in trying to remember just a month or a few weeks in advance to prepare. last september I forgot one of my best friend's birthday. i was so sure it was the day after.

do you also ever forget the "content" of past birthdays (of your own) as well? I realized back in november that I couldn't remember the bulk of my birthdays except for a few recent lonely ones :Idunno:
