Work issue #Conversation

I work as a home health aid. I go to a lady's house for 2 hours.
We mostly talk for 2 hours, I am
mostly company for her. She mostly talks about her life with her husband and different things about her family. I am not a big talker. Her husband died 2 years ago. He was her #1 priority. It is hard for her. The issue is she always talks about the current events she doesn't like in the country. Usually the negative ones. She can be extremely opinionated, and thinks she right.
I joked a couple times and said she should run for Mayor. I couldn't take it today. She was so extreme and thought her way was the only way. I said she focusing on negative and I wouldn't like seeing her blood pressure go up. Than another tirade of stuff. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do to steer her away from current events. It started getting better after I said something about her blood pressure. She said she wasn't upset. She probably wasn't. But I had to try something. Then we talked about pet dogs. I don't have much to say, because I go to bed early and only see friends once or 2 x a week.


Idk if this is normal? 🤔

So this happens to me quite regularly.
I will have a conversation with someone. (Sometimes while doing something else at the same time)
But then once the conversation is over, and I’m recalling the conversation in my head, I think they said something, but I’m not 100% sure.
It’s like small blank spots of the conversation that I may have made up in my head, or not have even happened. It’s really strange because I never know if they happened or not without having to ask them again.
Does anyone else experience this?

The #BrainFog is taking over today...

When I left the house this morning and I only went and forgot... My money and bank cards, my face mask that is mandatory to wear, my medications for the day and to top it off my phone is on 20% battery... Pray for me 🙏🏻😂
You've got to laugh or you'll cry kinda day.

First snow of the season here in the UK ❄️

I don't know why but it always puts a little smile on my face when I see the snow, I'm ready to get wrapped up warm and have a comfy, cosy day snuggled in bed 💜
