After getting up to kids during the night. Spending time cleaning shopping etc I seem to forget things, mainly little things. I also get more accident prone. Does this happen to anyone else?

  • Absolutely. Most of my normal every shy skills got out the window when I’m tired. The experts say being tired is equal to being drunk, and that’s a disaster



  • Oh yes, certainly ! And I think it’s very normal.



  • I was told by my doctor if you overthink , you can also lose your memory which is very interesting as a lot of times I am thinking of various things. Maybe slow down a bit and be aware of what is happening around you .



  • Yes, definitely! When I’m tired, my memory suffers. I tend to do things half arsed too because I just can’t be bothered. Tiredness affects many facets of our every day lives



  • Definately, every day, like a blur



  • Yes. This happens to me. My brain just doesn’t function fully and when you think about it, it makes sense.

    Write yourself notes if you find yourself forgetting important things.



  • I am terrible, feel sick, forget so much (forgot what day it was once school finishes early that day was late picking up my kids!!!) fall over everything too amazing how many walls jump in front of me. You are not alone



  • You’re not alone. I definitely am more forgetful if I am sleep deprived. Make sure you’re very careful driving as it can be hard to concentrate for long periods when you are over-tired.



  • Yes lack of sleep definately affects me.



  • Yes , it does.Making lists with the things you want to do in a day will help , I do that from tine to time.



  • Totally…. our brains are great but they need sleep in order to file things in the right place



  • I AM LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON WHEN I AM OVER TIRED ,,, I AM GRUMPY AND I GIGGLE AND DO STUPID THINGS , CAN NOT SEEM TO HELP IT



  • Yes absolutely … the brain needs sleep otherwise you find you cars keys in the freezer!



  • I get clumsy and distracted! Oh how I miss sleep



  • yes it morphs from mummy brain into straight up forgetful lol
