Sharing moments of fibro-fog laughter

Dec 15, 2014 10:46 AM

In one of my fibro-fog moments this morning, I was talking to myself of what all I needed to remember to do, and I said, "Stop what you're doing, and go eat your coffee & drink your oatmeal!". Omg...Lol

Lol, I do the same thing and my husband is like "who are you talking too?", and I'm like "myself". Lol, and I feel a bit embarrassed but my husband just shakes his head and says "Happy Acres is looking better and better", and we jut laugh it off. He is very patient with me and my issues.

I thank you all for sharing. I have many "moments", but most recently I simply could not remember if I went to pharmacy to pick up my prescription.( I had been there once already that day/to get husband's prescription) so while waiting in a long line I decided to call to see if it had been picked up. They replied " no"
I mean how spacey can one get??!!! Just ask me!

Not a fibro-fog moment, but funny anyway...now. Today was a really painful day for me so I stayed in my pj's all day. The neighbors kids knocked on the door to say their tennis ball was in my back yard. I told them I'd get it (because the gate bolt is too hard for me to open). As I walked in the yard to get the ball I realized I was moving slower than usual, and hobbling side to side. When I had d the ball to the kids, the oldest said, "Thank you mam. And if you ever need any help just let us know.". It seemed so sweet & polite in today's youth. But wait...did they just refer to my movements as my being " old!". Lol

I should add, they're newly moved in so they're not aware of my issues. I'm only 53, but wow did I feel real old at that moment, especially realizing how my walking probably looked to them. I couldn't help but laugh.
