Q & A

Ladies, as we age more gracefully has anyone experience the sense of brain freeze more often than not? I mean I have had moments where I can’t even spell the most simplest words? Or I can’t remember some things right off lol, my daughters tell me I’m in early stages of Alzheimer’s.

    • If you‘re in the early stages on Alzheimer’s believe me you’ve got lots of company!  Happens to me all the time, sometimes I lose my train of thought in mid sentence.

    • I hate that when that happens, I do this also.

      I call my girls by my sisters names. How about this one, My husband has a brain injury and from this has short term memory loss well how about two people not being able to remember anything?  I just have to laugh sometimes it adds a little humor to a stressed out life.

    • OMG...this is the story of my life.  I walk in and out of the rooms knowing I went in there for a reason.  Sometimes it takes me days to remember.  No kidding either...lol  For instance, I went into the kitchen last night (have to go through the kitchen to get at the back door).  I totally stood there and said “now what the heck did I come in here for?”  Walked away scratching my head.  I remembered this morning when I went outside to water my mom’s easter plant.  I said, “oh yeah.  Thats what I was gonna do last night“.  

      xoxo

    • Gosh, I don’t feel so lonely anymore!  I call my son by my brothers and sisters names.  My husband if he’s lucky gets his real name, but most days it’s “you know who you are“.  It only seems to be getting worse.  When I visit my mother and see how easily she forgets at age 79(yeah!), I think someday I may be that lucky also.
      It was wonderful reading the responses thanks for ending my day on a good note.

    • Yes, my short term memory is almost totally shot!  I open the fridge and forget what I’m looking for, close it to continue doing what I was doing that preceded me needing it in the first place, THEN, have to go back to fridge FAST - before I forget again!

      Depressing as all hell!!

    • girls you are so funny! and I am as bad as denise! I have noticed this getting worse and worse too. When I first entered Fab40 I found the group, Help, I’m going crazy! Menopause. After I read the signs, which includes memory issues I thought OMG, that is me. I went directly to Walmart for an herbal remedy and found Estroblend. It is herbs and vitamins and says you can have results from 7 days to 2 months. It started helping me within a few days, just ask the guy at work that I kept calling Jacob or Jason; he really appreciates me calling him by his given name, Justin.

    • My short term memory is getting worst.  I have resorted to using STICKies at work, I left the stove on all night last night, locked my keys in the car, when I call somebody in the room I go through all the names or sometimes I can’t even remember their name for a split second!!!!

      I thought it was the anixety drug, but I guess not....its just old age...great.
