My Thyroid Brain Fog Moments

These days, my brain fog is very rare, but some of the things it has made me do, are pretty hilarious. I’ll note them below. 

  • Taking the dirty laundry to put in the washing machine, and putting it in the wheelie bin instead.
  • Using my house key to try and get through the front door, but it didn’t work. Then I realised I was trying to get in to the neighbour’s house.
  • Another time, my key wasn’t working and I realised I was using my work office key to get in my home front door.
  • Putting hand-wash on my toothbrush instead of toothpaste.thyroid-brain-fog-unable-to-comprehend-sentence-lets-read-it-again-unable-to-comprehend-sentence-lets-read-it-again-unable-to-comprehend-e2097
  • Getting various words muddle up, like: “I’m wetting my merds uddled mup.” (I’m getting my words muddled up.)”
  • Writing a blog post and completely forgetting what I was doing, half way through.
  • Putting my pyjamas on completely inside out and back to front.
  • Taking clean laundry out the washing machine and immediately putting it back in to be washed. Again.
  • Putting lipstick on my eyes.
  • Making a list for the food shop, getting to the shop and realising I forgot to bring it.
  • Using my phone to call my partner, to tell him I’d lost my phone.
  • Looking all over the house for my glasses when I was wearing them.
  • in the bath, squeezing conditioner on to my hand then running it all over my face as if it’s face wash.

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us. 

I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
