Shannon, I think the fibro fog is the most frustrating of any symptom I have. I was at the casino last week and this woman walked up to me and gave me a hug...asked me about my dogs...how the hubby was doing...wanted me to help her write a book about MS. I had no idea who she was and after I sat down at a machine, she sat down behind me and kept conversing. Finally, I got up and asked my husband who was correcting papers in the lounge, who she was and pointed her out. Next to my husband was her daughter who said to me "I can't believe you don't know who my mother is...that's Meri and you see us here evey week!" Now, I'm really embarrased because I don't recognize the daughter either!!
I know your concerns and I have them too. Names are horrible. I found the dog leash in the refrigerator the other day.
hang in there...the fog lifts...or so they say!
lol,vesta.I've put more wierd stuff in my fridge than I care to mention.I had bought something at wal-mart the other day that i wanted to take back and i had put it in a bag and set it in the pantry.My mom came over an hour later saying she wanted to go,and for the life of me i couldn't remember where i had stuck it.took me 15 mins. to find it and i was ina total dither.
At least you were able to pick up and carry on. I probably would have crawled under the piano and stayed there for awhile! Fibro Fog is a pain and I never know when it will hit! Most of the time it is little things around home that I forget. Sometimes it is bigger things and I end up making a mess of things or have everyone looking at me like I've lost it!
I know it must worry you, but it probably is just Fibro Fog and will come and go. I am bad at names too. My biggest problem right now is getting thru a sentence without fumbling. I can't remember what I was going to say half the time. Hopefully it will get better for you.
Never regret something that made you smile!

Fibro Fog can be so embarrasing . It's a good thing my memory is so bad, I would hate to remember all of the embarrasing things I've done lately . Today has been a bad day for my brain and mouth to not be working together. I keep saying Blah, Blah, Blah, Ba Blah Blah, and then repeating, sorry my brain and mouth are not working together today, try me again tomorrow. Luckily everyone has had a sense of humor about it. I just want to go home, crawl into bed and start over tomorrow!
I always feel so much better when I hear that others are having the same problems and I am. I wish none of us would have to go through this but that is not an option. One day at a time .
