blank brain

Postby I forget » Tue Mar 08, 2005 3:05 am

I'm 49 years old...had regular periods up until Chtistmas and nothing since...no hot flashes...but...holy moly... I feel like alzimers :roll: has set in...
I went through the drive through cash machine at the bank....withdrew 100 bucks[or was it 60 ?]..and took off without getting the money out of the slot. ...of course I went back, but it wasn't there...
I'm forgetting lots of things...feel like my head is filled with cotton...I can't quite think as well as I used to!!I am a real organizer!I feel so lazy!!My chores seem like more of a burden than ever!!I get one thing done and I feel like I need a medal! I'm sleeping well...too well!!!I feel like I could sleep round the clock!!24 hours would be fine!!No depression yet or unusual mood swings....gosh!!!what next????Thanks for listening. :lol: ..I could be dangerous!!

My best friend calls that "sometimers" Some times I remember, some times I forgets. I have a clipboard at work I call my "short term memory" and have had to put a note on it that if it's found to return it to my department as I tend to get too many things going at once and lose it! The guys in my department laugh at me but have come to expect it! (still have another clipboard floating around SOMEWHERE that didn't have THE note on it! LOL).

Have you had your thyroid checked? I had the experience with the constant tiredness and levoxyl REALLY changed things! I'm also not as forgetful (really!) as I am w/o it, and a good doctor would be able to narrow down any concerns. Good luck!!!

I was like that for about 4 years, but it got much better! Hang in there; I think when your homones balance out your brain comes back...! Not saying I don't still forget things, but that "hazy, can't think" feeling is gone... :D

Ahhh the no memory club.....Everyone keeps teasing me about it.....but it's a good excuse sometimes....you can pull off stuff and when asked about it...you can just say...hummm can't remember.

I know how you feel! Sometimes that brain fog can be so awful. The other day (forget when), I was completing an insurance form and couldn't remember my husband's ss# or birthdate, or my kid's numbers either. Didn't know what day it was or how many siblings I have. Ugh! Too many numbers.....felt like the room was spinning!

Feeling For Ya 2

Postby lynie pause » Wed Mar 09, 2005 1:06 pm

Hey there,

I have alot of brain fog anymore too, it comes and goes. I can focus and feel pretty good with what I have to tackle then it hits...out of the blue. Whamo....I was applying for jobs yesterday, two matter of fact filled out tons of paper work and did testing booklet after booklet. I was a hour and half at both places :cry: and did pretty well I thought at the first one with the math test, spelling test and personality one, I wanted to laugh at that one I felt like putting down "Yea hire this crazy women....lol! Anyways I was almost done with the other work and filling out tons of paper work I missed filling out two pages the only thing is he had to ask me twice, first I filled the part out and handed it to him then he said here you forgot this back page..I thought geese he won't want to hire a lady who cannot remember simple things....I felt so stupid.... :evil: I feel for ya losing that money expecially when money is tight these days in this economy. My thoughts are with ya girl....keep your chin up.

No one's immune to this dead brain thing. As I started down the crowded aisle of airplane yesterday at the end of the flight, I realized with a start that I'd left my purse under the seat. I made my way back up the aisle apologizing to people right and left "Sorry left my purse, gotta go back, etc." They, in turn, were too polite or puzzled to point out to me that my purse was hanging off my shoulder!

Gotta laugh at ourselves!

Drjudy - LOL! That's a great story. I've spent time searching my house for my glasses when they were perched right on top of my head the whole time! :roll:

One of my co-workers "lost" her glasses during our last inventory, we're coming upon another one in a week and I'm betting that we find them somewhere in topstock. Her glasses and maybe my other clipboard! LOL hugs Pam

I personally think that the brain fog is the worst symptom of peri or menopause. They tease me at work now cuz I keep losing stuff and then stuff turns up right in front of me. I laugh along with them, but it is so frustrating.

I went to bake a cake and left it in the oven and went upstairs. Forgot all about it. It wasn't until the smoke detectors went off that I realized what was going on.

Dear Susan & Zetti,

Then I found them in the weirdest place, must of laid them on my bed and they fell off and got pushed under the bed :evil: but at least I found them. :). Zetti if I logged everything I would probably want to be admitted of all the stuff I forget or brain fart over....Susan I get to cooking too and forget about it and my stuff sticks to the bottom on pans hubby complains to me about it lol. Here is a good one.....you guys will love this one...lol :lol: :roll: I ran bath water awhile back....walked in kitchen got busy doing something, can't remember...imagine that! LOL! and forgot about it and son found it running over hubby and I went into bathroom and found a inch of water on the floor luckily it didn't soak into the lanolem or damage anything, just my ego...lol. we both got to moppin it up and he didn't say much about it, he knew better...hahahah. I hope that will give you a laugh for today on this Good Friday wish you all well and a great holiday weekend.....

Hah! My bf has learned that the worst thing he could hear is: Oh I put that someplace I KNEW I'd remember . . .

That means the item will never be seen again.

Another fun thing is when he says: Be sure to remind me . . .


Ha ha ha!
