Feel like I’m loosing my mind

Posted , 12 users are following.

Today has been the worst day for me with regard to brain fog / remembering anything & its scaring me.

I closed over the patio door in the lounge as it was a little chillie only a few minutes later to walk straight into the glass door smacking my head quite badly. I burst out crying, this is not like me, but apparentely it is now!

On making tonights dinner I completely forgot to put the chorizo in the Chicken & Chorizo jumbalaya, I've never done that before. Then to top it off, I put the microwave oven on for 3 minutes with absolutely nothing in it, forgetting that I had left the broccoli on the side. I did laugh, but in truth this is scaring me. I told my daughter & the first thing she said was that I was loosing my marbles. Am I??

    It ok, really you are not losing your mind!! I have started the microwave with nothing in it. When cooking I really have to think and focus about what I'm doing otherwise I forget something. I used to be able to multi-task when cooking but nowadays I can't-- I'll ask hubby to watch TV. Everyday it seems like I'm walking into a room forgetting why I went there. UGH

    Your not alone. Last month i went to buy a pair of shoes. The salesperson asked me my size and i just blanked out. It seemed like an eternity before i answered him. It was awkward and embarrassing. The way he looked at me and others in the store shot up my anxiety. I have so much episodes of forgetfulness i lost count. I am finding by adding flax seeds and chia seeds to my daily smoothies are helping me plus my omega oils. I would be better if insomnia never plagued me as much. But what can i do. Your not alone trust me.

    I did lots of things like this... I once found the toothbrushes in the dishwasher.. 😮

    I went on hrt and it got better but had terrible issues with hrt suiting me so came off it last month only for my brain fog to come back with a vengeance so now about to try a new regime again... hey-ho! Who knows if this will suit my fussy body... I very much doubt it!

    Don't lose hope, stay upbeat if you can... one day we'll be through it.

    xx

    ps hope your head is ok now! x

    This is totally normal! My boyfriend doesn't get that it is hormones, but it definitely is! I will be talking to him, and then right in the middle of my sentence, my brain totally blanks out, and I can't remember anything. Even if he prompts me, it doesn't work.

    Also, I can't remember where I have put things, so then I start looking around: I check the microwave, the oven, the cupboards. It doesn't matter what the missing item is, it could be anywhere! I keep feeling like I have Alzheimer's, but I know that I don't. Soooo weird! Hang in there:)

    Do you know! We could actually cheer each other up with our bizarre meno brain fog stories!!

    The other thing i do is - when calling a family member by their name, I seem to have to go through the whole of other family members names before i get it right!! Anyone else do this??

    😃))

    They all think it's hilarious but i cringe!!! Haha!!!

      Yes I do this and the other day I went thru all of them and still couldn't get it right. The kids just pass it off as me being tired which is true. My parents who are 80 do this at times-- I just roll with it.
