Biggest "brain fog" worry

I could not find the hot cross buns....I remember unpacking them with my other groceries,

ai searched every cuboard, even looked in the rubbish bin......completely baffled I went to make myself a coffee, but could not open the cutlery drawer ! HOW could I have pressed those poor little buns down into that drawer ? yet have no recollection of doing it .....

I would probably not even have seen them in there! Not only do I put stuff down in weird places but I can't even see it when it's right in front of my nose.

I went to the fridge for the milk - it wasn't there. I looked around the kitchen to no avail. My husband found it in the microwave! I also couldn't find my kitchen timer, I have to have a large ringing noise to alert me that things are in the oven or else I'll probably burn the house down. Finally found it the next day in the biscuit barrel!

Thyroid brain fog and I'm blonde - a dangerous combination? :) x

Hi there,

I made a lovely fresh, crispy salad then went to take chicken out of the oven. I placed the tray on the table and turned round to find the salad to plate up. No salad, I hunted around the flat, but know sign of it. Then I decided I ought to cover the chicken. Some of it had gone missing. I went to bed feeling defeated. Neighbour came round about two hours later. Told me her cat had brought in some cooked chicken and asked if it was mine. I said most likely it was but it was fine did not want it back, ho ho! Later went to make toast for supper. Low and behold what was that bowl of rather wilted veg under the grill. None other than my salad.

I am a psychologist and most interested in these 'action slips'. Everybody has them. It would be really valuable to do a comparison study to see if we hypothyroidins make them more frequently.

Regards
