Feeling Like I’m Braindead

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello Ladies 

Do any of you going through menopause feel like you are getting dumber? I feel like I cannot keep up with technology like the younger girls can. I’m 55 and at my job I am the oldest and just don’t feel that I learn that easy and I forget things quickly. I can’t keep up with all the changes. It’s very frustrating and I feel the older I get the more useless I am. Just curious if anyone else feels like the brain just isn’t what it used to be,

    Yes.. me too.   I feel like I'm getting dumber as well.  I used to be able to keep up and do a zillion things at once.  But now, I just can't keep up.  When I was younger my grandma would say 'ohh I'm so old and slow anymore, etc.." Now I know what she meant.

    I was feeling like that but within weeks of starting HRT, it got better and now I am on HRT for 6 weeks and it's even better. I am not forgetting things or not finding the right word. Still dealing with fatigue and depression (but I've had that before this started) but my energy is better too, which means my brain works better. But yes, I was feeling like I was having dementia symptoms and everything was a chore to deal with mentally.

    Sometimes I feel that way. But sometimes it's just that I don't care to keep up. Let them do it. I'm just looking towards retirement!😂😂😂
