    I am having a hard time lately remembering words and proper grammer. Remembering anything is a chore. You don't know how many times I had to boil a pot of water to make hummingbird food this morning. I kept forgetting the pot of water was heating until it boiled away.
    So please just ignore my horrible spelling and grammer. I do know better. Thanks! [​IMG]

    According to the other age post I believe you are younger than me? Don't feel bad I go from one room of my house and forget what I went there for. I',m only 43 and 5 kids later. I just say ts the new fad. I also talk to myself, I get the right answers and questions. Not a big deal.

    Quote:I just turned 47. Just I've got some medical issues going on, still striving for an accurate diagnosis.
    Hubby picked up a new sleep med Rx for me today. Maybe a good nights sleep will help.
    Thanks for your post. [​IMG]

    Please be careful; my DH takes ambien and one night he put a candy bar (still in wrapper) in the toaster. Coulda burned the house down. Ambien amnesia is very real and very weird!

    Quote:LOL yep, when I called the nurse to tell her that I couldn't take the sleep med. the doctor prescribed for me at my last visit I told her I've already tried ambien and it's a big no-no.
    I took ambien quite a few years ago. I thought I was sleeping great, until my b/f (now my DH) told me I was calling him at 3 am to talk for long periods of time. Turns out he wasn't the only person I was calling. [​IMG]
    My doctor tends to be distrusting of newer meds and sticks with the old reliables. This time he prescribed restoril, which is a fairly ancient but reliable med.
    Thanks for the warning though. I appreciate it.

    I hope you feel better soon. For the record, I haven't seen anything amiss with your posts. I think you are holding it together better than you think.

    We all have those times when we have a "brain glitch". Mine are usually when I have had a headache all night long and have taken drug after drug to no avail. My headache is still there, but I am woozy and not myself. Hey, Kat, I've never had a hard time understanding anything you've written or even noticed anything amiss! [​IMG]

    I have to laugh at myself everyday. I had an accident a year and a half ago and the surgen misprescribed the pain medication. I OD'd and wound up in the cardiac unit for two weeks. I lost most of my short term memory. I can drive now and remember my kids names, but I can no longer perform properly at my career and still am missing half my vocabulary. Yesterday I left a pot of eggs on to boil until they exploded . . . lol the entire kitchen was covered in eggs!
    I feel lucky, very lucky. My doctor said I had been prescribed enough medication to kill a 300 lb man. I'm still here. I'm not a work aholic anymore. I'm fat . . . still learning to laugh about that one. I have the best husband in the world, who I never would have even spoken to before. I no longer have frequent flyer miles but, I raise chickens and wear wranglers. I can no longer spell, but I have time to chat with people on line every day!
