I'm trying to think of more examples of this particular moment: a character who is dying, or thinking of death, or speaking from beyond the grave, gives a list or inventory of the everyday things they remember and appreciate about being alive. A few examples inside. [more inside]
For a while now, maybe several months or so (this only proves further how terrible my memory is) I have been experiencing long term memory loss. I have great trouble remembering my childhood, places I've been to, anything at all that i learned in school a year or two ago. I always forget what I say to people even a few weeks ago. They will talk about something I said or something I did and I won't remember. When I go to bed, the hours just before become unknown to me. When I try to remember what happened in the last hours of the night it is all foggy and fragmented. This is not something I normally experience, especially all the things I've done with family and friends, I can barely remember anything and it makes me very sad. [more inside]

I'm interested to read books about people who have lost their memory. Preferably BY people who have completely lost their memory, but fiction works too. Novel type format best, as I'm just following a current bit of curiosity triggered by a "This American Life" episode, not really looking for information per se. Thanks!
I'm on the lookout for suggestions for PDAs or similar devices for my father. His short-term memory is going. While it used to be pin-sharp, it's becoming a real problem, to mitigate it he's been using a PDA - he's always carried one and was a real fan of the Palm series. Now it needs replacing ...

My SD card has died (or has it?) - filled with pictures. Is it possible to get the pictures back, if Windows won't even "see" the card? [more inside]
Failing memory filter: My memory, never good, is noticeably deteriorating and I'm almost resigned to that. Anything that would slow this process would be welcome but I'm really looking for effective strategies to compensate - in particular, would a PDA help (for to-do lists) or are there other tools I should be using?
