I've been getting out a little more since my knee surgery -- trying to get my stamina back. I am still prone to swelling when I'm up on my knee too much so I have to watch it, but it is coming along. Yesterday, I went out to pick up a few things at the store. I had some coupons and there were some specials going on at the office supply store I was at. When I was looking at what I wanted to buy, I couldn't figure out what the best deal was. Should I buy more than one with my coupon? some items were buy one get one free, was that a better deal than what I went in there for? Too many choices and too many variables for my mind to wrap around . Since I was looking at an item with a relatively high ticket price I didn't want to make a mistake. The sales people kept asking me if they could help me and I was so confused by everything I couldn't even explain what I needed to tell them or ask them. I know I stood there for a very long time trying to figure it out. I know that it was probably something very simple, but I just got so frustrated I left the store. Why do I keep putting myself in these situations? Because I want to be able to do it and I used to be able to do it. I have to keep telling myself that I am not stupid......Simple things can be difficult for those with Alzheimer's.
