How do people deal with memory loss? I forget where I am at times, and I forget family members and loved ones. I also don't remember a very large portion of my life, even recent events. It's difficult because I don't know what people are talking about when they talk about something that I did. I just smile and nod. Recently, people have come to me talking about different parts, and I, of course, don't remember switching out or anything after the fact. I'm stuck in a loop of being so disconnected from where I am and the people around me. My subconscious has decided that not knowing what's going on is the norm. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to try and remember things or how to cope with not knowing things. How do y'all do it?

      I've been working on better communication of what is going on between alters so we have been intentionally telling other alters what's been happening, but it mainly helps to write things down or text them to my partner.

      Everyone here has already suggested things like switch trackers and daily journaling; which I would also recommend! Something that helped us when our amnesia was at an all time Worst, was having a sort of chronological timeline written down of major life events for us. That at least offered a broad structure to base the more intricate details around.

      I suggest downloading an app called Simply Plural. It helps keep track of those who front and for how long. You can also send messages to specific Alters as long as they have a profile and you can write stuff down in your notes section. It's really helped me and my system. You can even have your loved ones download it as well and then friend them on the app and they will receive notifications when someone else frints as long as you give them permission. Feel free to pm me if it interests you.

      Getting in the habit of writing and tracking stuff down like switches helps a lot. Not just for you, but for the others in the system as well. We’re not the best at it but we try. Simply Plural has helped us track our switches and there’s a bunch of different things you can do on the app. Discord also has PluralKit, so you could make your own server and track stuff like that. Having a written record of things done during the day, whether it be physical or virtual, has helped a ton.
