Indecision driving me mad

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all

Now I've never been one for making snap decisions but my indecision is getting out of control.

Last weekend I need to spend 2p more at the garden centre to get £10 discount. It took me 40 minutes to choose something, 10 of which were spend deciding between 7 exactly the same plants.

Anybody else finding this a peri problem?

    Know what you mean, go up the stairs dont know what I went there for, go shopping can't think and leave trolley in store and come home with nothing, know I have to ring someone but can't remember who, can't be bothered to get up sometimes - I'm in menopause ( surgical) and sympathise with you. 😁

      Oh yes I've had the dreadful memory thing for ages too. I don't even think about that anymore, I just have many diaries, lists etc, think I'll move onto notes on my phone next.

    yes!  Indecision can be excruciating, tho with me it's more of a personality thing than hormonal 😄.  I've got quite cross with myself in the past for time wasting. And I've been meaning to get a new bathroom for years, but too much choice, therefore can't make a decision.  Goes hand in hand with perfectionism I am afraid.  Still.....there are some plusses! X

    Heehee yesterday I thought about picking up some cake, but I thought 'oh no, there'll be so many choices, I'd better not even go in to the store, I'll get stressed from having to decide!" 

    I guess I was always pretty picky (okay, let's say sensitive and detail-oriented, makes it sound better!). Maybe it's gotten worse, and maybe I am just getting better about not putting myself in situations where I don't stress myself out.  Still, very much a first world problem, and kinda funny really. Well, that's the way I look at it.

    That's not a problem.  That's a small supply of chocolate bars at the checkout, surely?!!

    yeah, sorta do this. But have always done something like that.  If I have a Birthday Card to buy, my husband always says:   "Just pick one, buy it, and come out!".   In all honesty I do spent too much time getting the right card. 

    Ha Ha!  Just read Lou86 below.  We should use this up and down the stairs-mullarkey as exercise!!lol
