How's your memory? I'm only in my 30's and my memory isn't what it used to be.

I'm really having a hard time remembering new names. How about you?

  • Sometimes life gets so hectic or stressful, you really only have room to retain the priorities. Funny how that works.......... can't remember details, but you can remember you forgot. There's something messed up with that. LOL

  • I have noticed since having kids I am significantly dumber. I guess after having four kids, working third shift for 3 year with minimal sleep it all just went away. I have come to terms with it. It just gets hard when I am around my Mom and Husband sometimes because they are both highly intelligent. Ugh where was I going with that????

  • I'm 37 and I'm going through premenopause. Memory loss, insomnia, and having brief periods of feeling hot (not sweating, just like my face would all of a sudden feel very warm) were the early signs. Also, my emotions are all over the place - I catch myself snapping at people for no real reason.

    I sometimes accidentally call my kids the wrong name, or I'll just blurt out all of their names - guaranteed to at least get the right one's attention! :)
