Foggy Brain - what am I trying to do??

I have been, in the last few weeks, forgetting things. How to spell when I am leaving a message on this site or in a E-mail. Where did I put things or what did I come into this room for?

Has anyone else felt this way? I know my mood swings are from anger to crying and my back & fibroid pain is kill me. I am taking Pamprin and Advil just to make it through the day. I know I am nervous about my surgery on Aug 15th. Now my DH has hurt his back and is trying to help me get organized for the 15th. He also finds out on Wed his schedule,from work, for the surgery and afterwards. He's trying to take off days and/or work from home. It is hard because my 3 children are trying to comfort me but, they seem to be not listening to me and DH and yelling more!! They are aged 6, 4 & 3. I know it is stressful and probably scary for them. I am trying to kiss and hugs them and tell them I love them, usually after I have freaked out.

Having my head in a fog seems to be making it worse.
Any advice? Thanks.

Foggy Brain - what am I trying to do??

I can relate! I put the chocolate milk away in the oven the other day. I also know the added stress with an injured hubby. Mine was in a REALLY bad car accident on July 25. The only thing I can say (in my house), is that whatever food that gets eaten will be off paper plates!! I won't be able to do the dishes for a while and he can't submerge his from where he had bunches of stitches. The little ones are probably feeling the nervous vibe in the air (we have 8 indoor cats, and they're acting like monsters lately). Just relax and take it easy, and take those offers for help. If anyone asks me if I need something, I don't let them ask twice! Good luck and keep smiling!!

foggy brain


I KNOW what you mean ! I have been experiencing this foggy brain thing for about a year. I am scheduled for a hysty on Aug. 19th..and truthfully, can't wait. Anyway, I recently picked up a book called: The Wisdom of Christian Northrup.
I was AMAZED at the symptoms of PRE Menopause. Scattered thoughts ( or as I called airhead ), trouble concentrating, wheepiness...etc etc. I havent had any hotflashes etc etc., so I never considered my "mental" or emotional symptoms as menopausal. GO FIGURE !

I can tell you that after I read about three chapters, I felt a LOT better. READ it ! You are not alone--its all part of the life-cycle and you will feel better. Nothing is forever..thank god! LOL.

Hang in there

Foggy Brain - what am I trying to do??

Lately I feel like a bumbling idiot. The simplest tasks have me scratching my head and I'm having a hard time expressing myself verbally.

Foggy Brain - what am I trying to do??

dgronauer, LoriNut & Allison65,

Thanks for the the info and encouragement.

I have been reading Christian Northrup's book "Woman's Bodies, Women's Wisdom. It touches on the Woman's Anatomy, Menopause and choices for healing. There is a section on "How to prepare for surgery and heal faster" pg. 663
She has healing statements for going under anesthesia to say:

1. "Following this operation, you will feel comfortable and you will heal very well." Repeat this statement 5 times.

2. At the conclusion of the surgery, please say - 5 times:
"Your sugery has gone very well."

3. Afterward say - 5 times: "you will be thirsty and you will urinate easily". You will be hungry for______.

I am going to write these down and try to memorize them.
I will get her book on Menopuase too. Thank-you.

dgronauer, I hope your DH is doing better? My 2 cats feel the tension too. They are indoor cat Sheba is 9 and Kylah is 15. Kylah is my nurse, she always sleeps with me or meows to see where I am. Kylah and I have been together since the day she was born. She is going to be my best recovery method.

Thanks again. Knowing you are out there mkes me feel better!
