You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

It is possible that, for security reasons, you will not be allowed to re-use your old password.

Agreed, they may not let you reuse the old password exactly as it was until you have changed it 3 or 4 times or so many months has passed.
You can however use a modified version of your old password like adding a number or letter or two (beginning, middle, or end) or changing a letter to a number or number to a letter. This way you can easily remember it but it passes security checks.
You will have to enter your current password to change it so the process is still secure and anyone knowing your old one cannot change it behind your back.

You cannot reuse a password in GOOGLE. Google do not allow the users to use the password again for security concerns. It would be better, if you use a new password.
Last time i tried to reuse the password, Google displayed a message that you have already used this password and you cannot use it again.
