JusJoJan- January 4,2021- Fingertips

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

There was a time when I could remember a lot of things just like that! You could say I had them at my fingertips. Phone numbers, addresses, names of distant relatives, I could recall them all.

Then my thyroid started to act up. Or you can say, it gave up and my memory because absolutely abysmal. I would buy stuff and then forget about it and buy some more, like groceries or toiletries. It became very worrying and when I had a through check-up, it all was contributed to my hypothyroidism.

I am on medication for last 22 years but there are big chunks of my memory which are lost to me. I don’t say lost forever because one never knows when they may surface up!

This faulty memory has some advantages too. If someone ( usually a family member) accuses me of something I failed to do in the long distant past, or did something wrong, I can say with a clear conscience that I just don’t remember any such incident.

Now I have my phone and Google at my fingertips! Answer to everything one wants to know.

    1. The signs of this disease are very insidious! Most mimic other symptoms. Basically everything starts to slow down so you can work out the effects of this disease.

  1. I know my sister has thyroid issues and she takes a medication for it. Before she was diagnosed she was extremely tired… don’t remember if memory was a problem for her or not. Myself, I have Fibro Fog from my Fibromyagia. List are important to keep my “offline memory” πŸ˜‚
