Hi ladies - don't really know why I'm posting - just going through a bad patch I guess. I had a really bad day recently where my brain just stopped working - that's the only way I can describe it. Out Christmas shopping and I just couldn't recall my niece's names. Its ridiculous - we are a close family, but for the life of me I couldn't recall their names and I went into a right panic. My memory lapses are awful at time and I'm worrying I've got dementia or a tumour or something. I keep getting very light headed too - especially when I'm working at my computer however I have had a cold recently so assume its related to that. Going through a rough time, my dad is dying of cancer, my husband is having heart problems and Christmas is around the corner and stress levels are very high. I really don't want to go on anti-depressants, I'm taking Kalms. I know this all sounds like I'm really depressed but I think I'm coping - I guess I would just feel better reading that this brain stuff is quite common....and that I'm not going mad....can anyone relate to the awful memory issues? When I'm in a conversation it can be really embarrassing - saying the wrong word a few times and not being able to explain things. Not all the time and definitely worse when I'm tired. Thanks in advance for any replies x
