Janice is one of my best friends, she is also one of the smartest people I know.  She loves to tour the internet as much as I do.  We start most days talking to each other, mostly to keep track of the crafting projects that we are working on.  (And to figure out what internet detecting we will be doing for the other person.  There may be a little bit of bitching about challenges in our lives…)  I am so thankful for a friendship that has thrived for  24 years, since we met in a quilting shop in New Jersey.  I hope she doesn’t mind that I am including this recent e-mail from Janice. 

I had to share this all with you today. I have a condition called Menopause Brain. A true story in the life of Janice Davey…

 

Many women aren’t aware that another common complaint during menopause is “brain fog,” or problems with memory, confusion, and a wandering mind, which often relate to menopausal fatigue.

Why do fatigue and brain fog affect women around the time of menopause? Some researchers suggest that the fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone levels, which are the primary cause of most menopause symptoms, can be linked to poorer memory and cognitive decline (problems with thinking).

 
My husband said there is a giant bird out on my car. I go out to take a picture and see what is “giant.” It’s a hawk, not really a big deal unless you are my husband and grew up in a city.
 
My husband walks toward his car and the hawks flies up to a tree branch. My husband opens the door to put in his briefcase and says “My car stinks,” and he is holding up a yellow shoprite bag. I am thinking what could that be? Scott’s clothes from our T-day trip upstate? But we didn’t use that car. Duh.
 
In fact, I used that car when my husband took the Volvo and I did the Thanksgiving shopping and took his car because I needed a big trunk. This was like the 21st a week ago Monday.
 
In the yellow bag is my “free” shoprite turkey which I put on the back seat and forgot all about and only emptied the groceries in the trunk! My husband didn’t notice it because it was frozen solid and it only started to smell this morning! Right through the plastic wrapping and the plastic bag! (Can hawks even “smell”?)
 
Then my husband says “Well at least I don’t have to put up with that new car smell anymore!” I said yeah it was worth the $300 I had to spend to get that stinking turkey to rot in there and get that big hawk to perch on the car roof to see the look on your face!
 
The moral – never defrost your turkey in someone’s car you might start a feeding frenzy with the local hawks.
 
I really miss my mind lately!
 
Janice
