before i knew i had fibro i would have monents of complete ( DUHHH). 🤪. id forget how to do stuff an forget jus bout everything. i become irritated an confused an feel like screaming. an become very tired. i jus wanna put my head in my hands an hide. anyone care to share thier fibro fog moments?. it may help each of us know that we aint alone in this delemia. i would find it interesting an helpful to hear others bouts of fog. 💪🤗
P.s.. now i know why it was happening it makes me feel a lil better knowin i aint got a case of dementia or loosing my mind. but before the diagnosis yuh i didnt know what was happening to my mind. ( or body ).
When it first started for me I would forget words. I was going to visit my brother for Thanksgiving from Ohio to North Carolina. My sister drove with her husband and me. Her husband had just been diagnosed with dementia. We would be talking and he and I would be forgetting words driving my sister nuts. It was either funny or sad. I thought I either had dementia or a brain tumor.
thats jus how i thought. an yuh i also had a hard time expressing my self an finding words. id try to say things to my husband while we were dating an i would get embarrased cause i couldnt comeup wit words. felt like i had a stroke. id jus say ughh nevermind i cant think what to say. i think he thought it was cute but to me i was sayin to myself ( what tha heck is wrong wit yu angel ). i still do it. an when i do its hus plain frustrating. i jus tell me husband ( i cant think ). its like a slow dial up internet trying to recall crap!😬😑👀🙄
I have a lot of Fibro fog ! It drives me crazy as well! I forget a lot of things ! I have to write down lists to go shopping, keep a calendar of appointments and so on! I can be in a conversation and forget what I want to say or ask what I was just saying! It can be very embarrassing as well! Trust me , you are not alone!
I know this is a old post but I read this and smiled. I'm exactly the same. Totally forgot my address, my youngest daughter's birthday (soul destroying that was) my date of birth, and I mix up/forget words. Sometimes my speech is affected too, slurred and stuttering which is frustrating with my job - 90% of it is communication based. My husband laughs now, we've developed a sixth sense - he totally gets what I'm trying to say and doesn't get impatient with me. Hope you're okay! 🌈
