I just noticed something. I was putting together my husbands beard trimmer.... of course strewn all over the counter by the time my beardless but "blossoming" teenage son was finished with it. I had all of the pieces but the main one... the one that HELD the trimmers... the piece w/the motor that I wanted to put on the charger. How odd. I looked in the cabinet. I looked on the counter all around for this piece. Something unfamiliar caught my eye... I looked closer. I picked it up... "oh, there it is... " and I put it on the charger. I realized that it was my VISUAL memory of what I was looking for that was GONE.. POOF! I held NO image in my mind of what I wanted, which was why I couldn't see it. Totally weird, but explains a lot of why I can't find what I am looking for when it is in front of me... why when I look at people I know I don't see them... why when I look at signs I only see a jumble of what seem to be randomly place symbols/pictures/drawings. I have to look long and hard sometimes and then I realize what I am seeing. So, I guess what I am noticing is a subtle difference between "not seeing" and "not recognizing what I am seeing"... which is a memory issue... not a vision issue.
