I notice that my concentration levels depend on the amount of sleep I've had - I can't concentrate as much if I've had a bad nights sleep or not much sleep - if I get a full 7 or 8 hours then I don't have any problems at all.

Try making a note of the amount you sleep and how your concentration levels are on the days that you get a good amount of sleep compared when you don't sleep so well.

My concentration changes all the time. Im 12 months on now and sometimes seem worse than 8 months ago. I seem to get these strange head feelings when i seem to loose all focus on what im doing. Not sure why it happens can be fine one minute then cant think of anything. When im shown something i cant seem to retain the information.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Good to know its not just me. My sleep pattern is rubbish at the moment so am going to monitor it. Tracy i agree with you can't retain anything i am shown just have to be told over and over again until eventually it clicks. I used to get in the shower with my watch on all the time have had to stop wearing it. Set fire to the oven gloves cooking sunday dinner last week didnt even notice they were on fire good job my son was there. On the plus side started driving again but keep forgetting to change gear new clutch her we come.

If I hadn't got the words thingy and whatsitsname in my vocabulary I'd be stuck......I cannot remember the supermarket

But while I can remember my daughter and hubby and all my family who cares lol

Both my concentration and memory are impacted when I don't get enough quiet time (rest). If I'm well rested I can trick myself into believing that I'm all better. It's such a great feeling! But when my brain is overloaded or tired from not enough sleep I start doing 'funny' things. Can't remember words, can't follow directions, have trouble following conversations, and can't make decisions.

It all freaks me out when I think of trying to be at work. It's not so bad when I'm at home because Peter and the kids and I have some really good laughs over it. For as scary as it is my goof ups can be really funny! And it makes me feel better when we see the funny side of it.
