Well, THAT explains a lot

The other day one of my students was giving a presentation. She was explaining how dreams work and why we dream... and then she said something that really caught my attention. She said that when your woken up during your REM sleep cycle, it affect the memory part of your brain. The next day you'll feel foggy and have a hard time concentrating and remembering things... which explains why I've felt like I've been losing my mind recently.

I feel like Dory from Finding Nemo lately. You know, the whole three-second memory thing? That's me. I write myself 100 notes a day just to remember basic things that should just be part of my routine... and even then I forget them! While her explanation doesn't help me fix my problem... it does help me understand it a little better.

You learn something new every day.

  2. This actually explains the concept of "Mommy brain". With constant night wakings for years, no wonder we moms lose our memories :)
