OMG! How do you (or did you) deal with perimenopausal brain fog?

10 years ago

I am definitely getting to that stage. Lots of symptoms over the past year or so. The most annoying thing is the "brain fog." I feel like I'm dopey or spacey, like I forgot to have my coffee in the morning but it doesn't matter how much coffee I've had! Still feel like there's mashed potatoes where my brain used to be. I find myself wandering in stores with no clue what I'm looking for, or just unable to really focus on what I'm doing there. And yes, I have had a checkup and tests and nothing else is wrong with me. And it's not constant, but it seems to be more frequent. It's not even the forgetfulness that bothers me so much, because I have always been the type of person who has to write things down, so I have strategies in place -- thank God for my iPhone reminder function! But it's the zoned-out feeling that makes me feel loopy.

Any suggestions? Or just ride it out and enjoy the stoned feeling while it lasts? LOL.
