Hello,

I haven't been officially diagnosed with fibro yet, although I have many of the symptoms, but I'm pretty sure that all you've said are part of the fibro. The confusion, as well as forgetfulness, are called "fibro fog". I also have Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, so the confusion comes not only from the AS, but, if I do have fibro, it comes from that, too.
I hope I've given you some help today.

HI Ed,
I know you've been having a difficult time of late and i wish to extend a good cyber vibe all the way from Ireland.
The anger and worry you're experiencing is comman when you are just learning to accept and cope with this often debilatating syndrome. As you said, you are having a bad day and it's days like that, that test you to your limits. You think, 'why me' 'what's wrong' and 'how can i get better'

So yes, it is normal and part of FM. The confusion is indeed 'fibro fog'. It's a contant state of forgetfulness, confusion and if you're walking around like that you will of course be angry at yourself. I have only come to terms with it in the last few months, mainly by the help and support i've gotten here too, and that's only since i joined in the last few weeks.

I feel for you, but you need to find a way that helps you. I understand where you're coming from and i know working on your boats must be harder if you're confused and muddled.

I am seeing someone to rule cognitive/comprehension problems as it has gotten so bad, and i do find it puts my mind at ease if i know it's just the fibro and nothing else.



Take care, boo.

Ed, I find I'm more confused or in a fog when the pain is worse.  It all seem so interconnected.  And, pain causes depression and that can cause anger.  We all wish we didn't have this illness and could do all the things we want, but that's not how it is for us.  Acceptance does help a lot but still we can get angry or irritated when we can't do the things that used to be so simple for us.  It can be maddening.  So, you definitely are not alone.
 
Yes, put your email in your profile.  I delete email addresses that are put on a post because anybody throughout the world can see it and that can spell problems for you.  But, only HealingWell members can read your profile.  So, that makes it far safer to do that.

 Ed, I deleted your comment out of your post so no one else reads it and is offended by it. We are here to help each other with fibro and it really doesn't matter what is said on other forums.

Hi Ed,

Sorry you are having a tough time right now. Missing sleep is not a good thing. I have sleep apnea, and now get a pretty good night's sleep with my c-pap machine - but perhaps yours is more pain related. And I understand that too, as I have my nights as well.

Fibro fog is very real. I have it too. It's one of the reasons that I can't work anymore. I used to practically run the ER when I worked there doing 12hr shifts....now, I could barely make it an hour or two. It's very discouraging, and I'm so sorry it's hard for you to work. Have you thought about trying for disability? Maybe you are and I haven't seen your post - but it might be something to think about if things are so bad for you. I'm in the process of getting it myself.

Glad Penny is there for you. A supporting spouse is so important. Keep praying, and never give up.

I just don't like the way a large percentage of the American tourists act ... has nothing to do with the crash. I'm also not German and I don't have a problem with the government.

Painter, I took out the email in your post.  I just got done telling you that I will delete it in the post.  I do see that you have it in your profile so members can go there and get it to email you.
 
Also, please lets not get political here.  We all have opinions and there is a lot of controversy and we could end up in a food fight!  LOL  Lets just stick to fibro and helping each other with pain.  Thanks!

Painter,

You're not he only one that gets easily agitated when you're hurting. I've discovered a long time ago that more pain = less patience. The more that I hurt the more that the DBF goes out for walks and such without me. Hee Hee.

I think it's perfectly common that if you're not feeling at your best, or even decent, that we tend to be more sensitive emotionally as well as physically.

And if you don't mind my asking....what part of Oregon, I'm in Portland. Even though this is 'home' to me I'm going to be moving pretty soon here. By the end of summer I will finally have traveled past the Rockies and will be living in the SE part of the states.
