Sjogren brain!!!!!!

Lying down with strong cuppa--- ultimate sjogren brain. Was running bath then (daft as a brush) started doing something else. Dandered into hall and water was pouring out bathroom door🙄😂 full emergency mode grabbing towels and mopping up. I was scared to go downstairs but all seems ok though havent turned on lights yet. I feel so stupid as i do things like this all the time, well maybe not quite as bad as this. Im exhausted now and arms and hands are aching, do you laugh or cry!!!!!!

  • I do that. Forget what I'm doing when I'm doing it.

  • You laugh. There's not much else to do. I leave the cooker on, go to a room to do something then forget what I was going to do. I Think of something and go to google it then when I open google I can't remember what it was I was going to look up. I find that if I don't worry about it that helps. After all I soon forget about it and wonder what on earth I was worried about.

  • You are right , whats the point in fretting about it if you cant remember what you are fretting about😀😀😀

  • Just laugh. I recognise the behaviour. Take care.

  • Thanks roopavati

    I can laugh safely now as there doesnt seem to be any damage to electrics, i would have cried them. My poor hands snd shoulders are aching from wringing out the towels i used to soak up the flood but hopefully that will settle again😀😀😀

  • Ps. Its good to have someone who understands🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸☀️🌸☀️🌸🌸🌸🌸

  • If I think of something I try to write it down straight away and have notes that I go back to and cross out things as I get them done. Where would I be without my notes.

  • My family think it very funny that i have constant reminders going off on my phone🙄

  • Is this to do with sjorgrens? I thought I was going mad or was maybe showing signs of dementia. Sometimes I don't even remember conversations I've had. I am 47 and have sjorgrens/lupus overlap, thyroid issues and adrenal probs. I've been feeling really tearful this week because I feel as if I'll never be able to be myself again. I used to multi task...and now I'm no task...I've either forgotten what it was or don't have the enthusiasm to do it😫! Maybe I'll write them down and set alarms as you say...especially to remember to take meds! My friends don't know I'm ill so they must just think I've gone loopy!! Xx

  • I am with you there! Im afraid it is just another symptom that we have to find a way of managing 🙁🙁
