“We once had a psychiatrist on set and I explained to him the nature of my forgetfulness and he told me that it could actually be a disease. I explained to him that I could set out to do something, and then I end up forgetting, and he told me it could be a chronic illness,” said Abel.

The content creator went on to narrate how he once withdrew money from an ATM machine and ended up forgetting to take the money, at which point he realized he had a serious problem. 

“Let me tell you how bad it is. It takes time for cash to be released from the ATM machine, and before it releases the money it returns your card. So I had gone to an ATM machine, inserted my card, punched in the amount of money I needed, then the card was returned. I quickly got the card and left for home. I remembered I had left my money when I was far away from the ATM,” he narrated. 

He added that it became a matter of concern when he realized that he tends to forget things that are supposed to be muscle memory.
