Thanks, I think doing things like Zumba, having to learn new things is helpful to maintain memory, because I really have to concentrate and my balance has improved! They say the same about puzzles, board games. Luckily I do some teaching and am in the medical profession, so I have to read and try and keep up on the info. You know..."Use it or lose it!"
Some of its thyroid, I'm sure, but what really fried MY memory was childbirth (twice). LOL
And aging for certain. Some days... seriously... I can't believe how stupid I am, compared to what I used to know when I was a young "whippersnapper"! LOL
Its also been my personal experience that if I don't get adequate sleep, I feel okay and can function nicely, but I'm just not as sharp when it comes to learning new stuff.
Frannie, it sounds to me like what you've been doing has been working for you... isn't that great when that happens?...so I would just keep doing it! Congratz on finding a formula that works well for you!

Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.
Interesting article. Something to ask my doc about next week. My TSH has been from .2-.41 the past year on Synthroid and Cytomel. But I feel good, don't get the fatigue I did and no more hot flashes. Weight used to be less but it's still holding in the normal range. I'm pretty happy with it and I don't notice much in memory issues, other than sometimes not coming up with a name or something, which is common with aging anyhow. Thanks for your posting Mzzz!

Thanks for the article. I've been thinking about memory loss a lot lately. I can remember being a young girl, and learning and memorizing things was so easy. Now, I'll try and explain something I've read and can't remember the facts. Maybe it's my thyroid?
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt
