Hi, for some time I've been very forgetful. I always have had the odd lapse or two but for some reason it's been getting worse as it happens every day and it's bothering me a lot.
Things that I forget/get mixed up are:
* Not putting things back where they belong.
* Forgetting to do something continuously - I was planning on putting my electric toothbrush on charge and I meant to do it in the morning but it wasn't until late afternoon that I remembered and that I did it.
* Forgetting what I wanted to say.
* Forgetting names of people, places, etc, items.
Yesterday and today were the worst. Yesterday I couldn't remember if I locked the flat door or not - turns out that I did and I didn't remember. It was only when I was outside the main block's front door that I decided to check.
Today I had a microwave meal (one of those that you put on for 3 minutes, let stand and put on for another 3 mins). I had it on for the first 3 mins then took it out and started to eat it, forgetting I had another 3 mins to put it on for!! I mean I know my memory has ever been a hundred per cent and examples like these make me feel ever so senile. I'm only 28 and my memory is this bad? I feel awful!!
Is this typical of Hashi's? I'm only into my 125mcg meds by 5 days but it's been bothering me so much I don't know what to do about it. I guess I just let the meds do their thing for now. I've only been diagnosed this May.
