    Morning

    Yes I have the same problem,  Mine started when I went from the HRT Tablets to the Patches,  smaller dosage.  Such a problem,  I have to write everything down,  and when I forget the persons name,  I just say morning sweetie or something like that lol

    Please don't worry about being forgetful regarding names and what you are doing in a room. I'm sure it's a natural part of our brains ageing and both men and women suffer the same. We have enough menopause symptoms to worry about without general stuff that everyone goes through smile 

    I remember my mum and auntie always liked listening to Terry Wogan's show and stories from his Toggs (Terry's old geazers and gals, I think). People used to send up their funny stories about getting old. I didn't listen to it myself but I know it made my mum laugh smile

    As for going into a room - I have just come into this room and am sure I wasn't supposed to be checking my emails..............think I came in to empty the drier.......or do some ironing......perhaps not...........aah well smile
