thanks for the replies. It makes me feel so much better to know it's normal in a fibro way.
I was just at a wake adn couldn't say the persons name i was paying respects to as i knew i'd say the wrong one. I was shaking Jim's hand and while his brother Peter was 2 feet away in the coffin, all i could think of was getting the name right. In the end i said nothing.
I work in a chemist and constantly call out the price of the prescription instead of the nacme of the patient.
Also, i've gotten my husband and friend to look at some of the posts on the board so they can better understand that i'm not trying to wind them up. It is actually this hard to function.
Has anyone ever been asked by thier gp or rhuematologist about fog, i don't think they use it as a diagnostic synptom. You'd think they'd consider it if it's that prevailent.
Thanks again, boo
I had an app with an occupational therapist/counsellor today.
After much questions and form filling/assessmants, she spoke to me at length about the fibro fog and the extent it has had on my daily life. As an adult it has been hard but when talking i just realised it goes back to my childhood.
I always did badly in school, long story short version......she says she wants to do two more tests next week as she's pretty sure i have Dyspraxia, something that can be linked and likened to fibro.
I got all worked up as i said i didn't want to go down the road of another dx and had just accepted the fm. She said she wasn't contradicting my gp or rhuemy, and that this is a positive step forward. It'll help me cope better with the cognitive problems and learning difficulties i had/still have.
It would explain an awful lot though, i looked up the net when i got home and i see the simlarities. I just don't want to take it on board right now.
I don't know what to think
I was at physical theraphy with my mother when I looked down and noticed that I had lost the diamond out of my wedding ring. I was too sick that day to get overly upset because it just would have taken up too much energy. I did look around and reported it t the right people but it never turned up...of course. Luckily we had it insured so all I had to do was call the insurance company. I took my ring to the jewlers where we bought it. The insurance company sent me a check, which I deposited into my checking account. When I went to pick up my ring I was just amazed at how pretty it was and how it shined! I just kept bragging on the ring and then said "Thanks for doing such a good job" and started to walk out without paying. The girl started looking at me funny so I stopped and gave her a puzzled look and then finally my brain kicked in. I HAD NOT PAID FOR THE RING! I was just luckey enough that I knew the owner and they didn't try to have me arrested. I was totally embarassed to say the least.
i jsut made toasted garlic bread and left it on the plastic tray when putting it in the oven, big mess, no toasties, destroyed oven. I need to move at a snails pace lately to avoid these mishaps. \i'm so annoyed with myself.
