CAN SOMEONE RETURN MY CONFIDENCE PLEASE!

I’m an Interior Designer, I love what I do and I am good at what I do so why do I struggle to talk about it?

Confidence

Now anybody who knows me would laugh at this as I probably come across as very confident, don’t get me wrong in day to day situations I can pretty much put my mind to anything and am not bothered about other peoples opinions.

But here is the crunch when I come to talk to clients or potential clients either 1:1, via zoom or doing a facebook live I forget words and this really frustrates me.  How can I come across as an expert in my field if I can’t remember the word for laminate or skirting board?

The menopause has many symptoms – brain fog and memory loss are 2 big ones and they both affect me big time to the point where I lose confidence in my ability to have a reasonable conversation or give a good presentation.

Over the last few days I have given 2 presentations on facebook both with the same subject matter the first time I couldn’t remember the word for footstool the second was lampshade –  what the hell I can remember them now but oh wait what’s the name for that stuff you lay on the floor that is soft to walk on – give me a minute – carpet.

What’s the answer?

I tried HRT and although that helped with lots of other symptoms the brain fog always lingered.

I have tried various natural products – the brain fog is still lingering

So I will just pull on my big girl pants do the ‘lives’ do the presentations and laugh it off because at the end of the day I might not be able to remember the word but I will remember to include the item on your mood board.

  1. Bless you! Much better to laugh it off than be embarrassed – people appreciate it when you’re “real” I find 😉

  2. Hi Sue 🙂
    It’s a funny old road we’re on right now.
    Talk about it, laugh about it, hope we get to the end sooner rather than later and and maybe have a pile of key words scribbled on a piece of paper to refer to if needed – lol!
