Yes, Marlee, I have been in this FOG for three weeks...the worst since I can remember. I wrote a grocery list the other day for my husband and he picked it up and said..."what's this?" I had written
canned. I meant to continue with dog food
a five pound bag. I meant to continue with potatoes.
Sherrine as assured me I don't have Alzheimers but sometimes I wonder!
I haven't had that problem yet, but I would think heat would help your legs. I did forget my pin number at the pharmacy drive up yesterday while getting some refills. I had to sit for a few minutes and think! That's the first time I've forgotten my pin. Luckily the pharmacy tech was nice about waiting and even laughed with me.
I have been driving my family crazy by repeating things or reminding them of something that I have already done! I forget things that happened yesterday. My mom & sisters have always joked that we all have sometimers, but I seem to be getting worse!
Never regret something that made you smile!
Donna, That is one thing I haven't done - only because my father did it yrs ago. He bought work shoes, wore them thru his entire shift, came home complaining to my mother how horrible the shoes were and vowing to take them back to the store. As he started to take them off, my mother heard a weird noise. She asked for the shoe, turned it over, stuck her hand inside and pulled out the tissue paper. We were all witnesses to this scene, being rotten little children, we laughed. But I learned a valuable lesson that day, I always check shoes, mine, DH's or when I used to check for my children.
I'm sorry this has caused you so much pain. Hopefully, it has passed by now. I would suggest stretching exercises for your feet and legs, I do them each night before I go to sleep, I do them when I wake up, also. It does seem to help w/ the leg cramps and also the stiffness in my feet when I get up. It isn't perfect, but it does help.
