Humor, humor, humor! I just tried to heat up a cup of tea in the microwave without the rotating glass plate on the bottom...I took it out this morning to wash it and heaven only knows what I did with it. I will probably find it in the linen closet. Yesterday, I asked my husband where his bathrobe was so I could wash it. He was wearing it. You just gotta laugh and know it could be a lot worse!
Before I met everyone here, my fibro family, I stressed about the fog and what people thought of me. Now I realize that I am not the only one that makes these silly and embarrassing mistakes. It is so much easier to laugh it off. I still get embarrassed when I am around some of the people I work with; highly educated and well spoken, but I'm learning not to care what they think. I used to be on top of things and an excellent speller, words used to come to me easily, it happened to me it can happen to them. And you know what, I will never judge any one of them or anyone if they are faced with a disorder that changes their life in some way. So keep a sense of humor, write everything down, get reminders, and be careful on the roads.
I do the same things as most. Sticky notes everywhere! I write myself notes for even the smallest things. I also have my trusty calendar. I couldn't live without them! Once in a while we will call our favorite restaurant and order for pickup. I now have to write everything down before I call! For example: "Hi, I have an order for pickup" along with what everyone wants.
I got stuck in the pharmacy drive-thru one day, couldn't remember why I was there and thankfully the worker laughed with me. I try to laugh it off because if I didn't I would be crying all the time.
Never regret something that made you smile!
