I did absolutely nothing during the long weekend, and it was great. Well, nothing that I remember. That's how I should say it. Thankfully, I leave proof of what I did everywhere. (So there, scatterbrains!)
This is the frame of mind I've been walking around with for months now. Most of the time, it's funny. It's the slapstick, stupid kind of funny, if you know what I mean. Other times, it's frustrating as all get-out.
Of course I can't remember where I found it, didn't think to bookmark it, but I read an article yesterday saying this "foggy thinking" is typical in menopausal women. The only thing you can do is wait it out, and though I was relieved to find the way my brain hasn't been working lately is normal, I wasn't too happy to read that it could take years before I get my mind back!
But, you know what? It's not just women that experience this foggy thinking thing. Nope. I mean, this isn't scientific or anything, but I was talking to Mike the other day, and he was just as scatter-brained as I was! The conversation went something like this:
"I've been playing around with...with...you know, the ....," Mike said.
"You mean the... the thing that has to do with .....? I said.
"Yeah, you know what I'm talking about!" Mike said.
"OK, but were you thinking about the... about the..." I said
"No. I know what you're thinking, but I think you were right the first time," Mike said.
Okiedokie. Neither one of us thought to change the topic of the conversation. We just kept talking like that for, oh, about an hour. Mike would have to be an incredibly sympathetic man if my "foggy thinking" rubbed off on him. But, I don't think that's it at all. Nope. I think Mike has his own case of fogginess going on!
Maybe, just maybe, estrogen has nothing to do with it at all. That puts me right back where I started, which was...which was...
