Memory like a SIEVE.


I just can't seem to hold any information at all at the moment. It's like people tell me things and they go straight in one ear and out the other. My attention span is at the very worst it has been in a long long time. I am doing everything I can to get around all of this; writing lists of things to do, making notes of conversations I have, so on so forth.

And I'm still struggling. It's really bothering me - it means I am nowhere near as efficient as I could be! I want to be productive and on top of things, yet I am finding it pretty hard. 

I can't tell you the amount of times this week I have sent follow-up emails trying to sort things out/arrange things/checking details of discussions - because I have forgotten what I have discussed in meetings etc. The main reason I can't tell you is because I honestly can't remember! 

If anyone has any suggestions on how to make this easier, please tell me - no matter how big or small! Is there anything I can be doing to help myself? Should I invest in anything? Help! This has been getting progressively worse over the past couple of weeks.

Thankfully I have not forgotten anything type 1 wise - I always bolus, test etc. I suppose a little part of me is worried that one day I might!

When I started having the same type of problems is when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Have you had your thyroid checked lately? Any other symptoms besides the memory? Maybe thyroid has nothing to do with it. Just my experience. :-)
