Memory loss and menopause

Posted , 3 users are following.

My wife is in the premenopause stage and we have just had the most almighty row because  she was looking forward to watching the latest episode in a series on tv that we had taped. When it started I said that it was the one we had watched together in its entirety two days ago. She denied this in strong language and I tried to remind her of things she had said during the programme. She became madder and madder and said I must have indulged myself and watched it without her. I tried to point out that this was not possible but she was adamant, stormed off and went to bed slamming the door on me. I am worried that this is going to become a pattern and my wife is not going to accept that she is sufering from menopause related memory loss. What can I do?

      Hi Maria,

      Thank you for your reply.

      Part of the problem is the memory loss is so complete that my wife doesn't even believe she has forgotten anything - and she flies off the handle if I even suggest it. She genuinely believes she did not see this episode that we definitely watched together. It wasn't the only thing she has forgotten about that evening either - she also got out more than one tea towel and hung them in the under sink cupboard but she accuses me of doing this - and for some reason she is extremely angry about it. 

      It would be good to know if there are things that can lessen the memory loss problem - and calm the anger.
