Hi 👋🏼 I have this ALL the time, I'm always forgetting what people have said, where I have put things and it's so annoying. The way I deal with it is write everything down then you have it just incase you forget, I would also try to explain to your husband that you really can't help it and your trying your best and explain to him that you understand it must get frustrating. Sending hugs
@Littlelola Thank you. I am also thinking it might have to do with my brain damage. I had since I was younger. This is why I prefer texting over talking on the phone but when hubby and I are playing video games. It's hard for me to remeber step by step . I tried telling me he want to fast . He needs to tell me little at a time.
@Christmas7. Thank you . I really need it to get better sooner rather than later. Patients is always difficult for me . I think I should make a difficulty list and work on slowly getting better that way . 🤗🤗
I told my hubby something once and completely forgot I told him. He was upset and thought I lied to him. I had to explain I wouldn't lie and I just can't remember. He understands better now cuz it's happened so often unfortunately. I ask him now to please forgive me but I don't remember and ask him if he can tell me again. It works for us.
I have what's called lupie fog and fibro fog. I keep reminders in my phone, alarms on my phone for everything, and if I call someone in the house I'll make up a song so I don't forget what I called them for.
I get harder to concentrate when my pain gets worse. I try to take a deep breath to make myself more focused if I'm going a task. Sometimes I have trouble finding my words while speaking but my family just think I'm a little scattered even though I've told them it's because I have trouble concentrating.
I just went to fed ex yesterday to deliver a package. We got it all figured out on how to wrap and send it. The lady said "and the address it's going to???" Uhhhhhhhh it's my husbands cousin who just got married and lives in Chicago. I had not clue what her address it. Re last name was even though I just attended her wedding! Felt like a COMPLETE IDIOT! Lolol
I am famous on forgetting my birthday when asked . And don't ask me my age sometimes lol. In my mind I am younger . I think it's from my ptsd . Like if my mind is stuck there. And my body ran away haha .
Today at work me and all my coworkers looked for a phone for about 15 minutes before I found it in my pocket. I even tried to feel my pockets before we started looking for it but I guess my brain didn't register that! 🤦♀️
My fibro fog seems to be getting worse lately, it was bad enough before when I'd forget where I'd put things and really struggle to get my words out or I think I'm saying one word but say something completely different....I've always been quite scatty anyway so....erm!!!! Last week 5 days after I dropped my morphine at bedtime from 15mg to 10mg....I don't actually remember this (to be honest all I remember is pain) but both my kids said that I swore that I'd cooked dinner and I wouldn't believe them that I hadn't until they showed me the meat and veg raw in the fridge!!! It's really quite frightening really that I don't even remember the discussion about it with them!!!
