Customer Question

Diagnosed type 2 diabetic 2002.69yr old female on metformin, levothyroxine and simvastatin taken once daily. Am getting worried by seemingly forgetting "stupid"things like where to put pots away etc-also a few weeks ago, while driving, a car pulled out of side road and I couldnt think which pedal to activate .Am I losing it, or what?Am I right to feel concerned?I dont want to waste anyones time.
