“I never knew that”

Justin: Mom’s memory is slowly degrading.  Things from the past would come up in conversation, and she would say, “I never knew that,” or “No, that never happened.”  Today I questioned her about it.  I asked if she thought her memory would come back since she’s now done her medication for a couple or few months.  But for someone who doesn’t remember certain facts, those facts aren’t real; so for her to comment on them makes no sense.  This has been going on for some time though.  It could be from Ativan or sleep meds or just the stress of having cancer.
