Hi everyone, HAPPY Friday!
Today I was in my kitchen and dropped a knife, I remember thinking, thats dangerous, happy I did not cut my toe off, and got to pick it up the kids are still awake... I walked away to put dinner plates on the table and sat down, I guess I was thinking I already did it...I dont know...But 2 hours later (thankfully with the kids in bed) my husband goes into the kitchen to get us a drink and cuts his foot on the dang knife!!!  I feel so bad becuase it could of been one of my girls, and that he cut his toe of course but hey, better him than them lol. 
 
Has anyone else thought they did stuff they did not do???  Or am I finally going crazzy lol?
 
Thank you for any comments!!
 
Have a great weekend!
Jada

OMG all the time. I also went to the bathroom at work, shut the door and it actully took a few seconds to register that I needed to turn the light on and it was pitch black. Sometimes I think I am going crazy.

At least once I day I think I'm going out of my mind. I threw away my MEDS the other day, for pity's sake.

Oh I do crazy things like that sometimes too. I personally blame that darn fibro fog.

I do this all the time..the most frustrating one is when I can't remember if I took my vitamins or not. I don't know how many times I will go into the bathroom meaning to take them and then awhile later, go back in there and think "wait-did I take them or not???" VERY frustrating! I'll do that a lot with things around the house, too. I'll mean to put something away or get something out and then awhile later will realize I never did it. Thank goodness for post it notes or I'd never remember anything at all!

Sleepy Bug, I put my vitamins and supplements in a container with days of the week on it, along with all my meds. That way I know if I took them or not. Diane

I forgot to feed my 12 yr old granddaughter dinner last night. shakehead She finally asked about 8:45 if we were going to eat dinner. Grandpa went to McDonald's and got her something to eat. Unlike her brother and sister who are hungry every hour she is not a big eater. Good thing they are all old enough to tell me when they are hungry now.
 
Stari, I have actually done that.
 
Jada, I'm so glad your babies were asleep. Don't commit yourself yet we are all going to the same home together someday. We will name it Fibro Fog Paradise.
 
I have 10 mo and 4 mo old puppies in the house so I do make a conscious effort to make sure it is safe but I'm always double checking everything, I think I'm a little paranoid that I will leave something out that will hurt one of them.

I took the milk out of the refrigerator and put it on top of the refrigerator and closed the door. Hubby who does not have fibro tried to put ice in his water bottle and was getting really frustrated because the ice would not go into the bottle when he realized the lid was still on. Sometimes, it is hard to tell what is fibro and what is normal forgetting.

I washed four giant loads of laundry today with the water level set on small.  You would have thought that after the second load of seeing soap caked into the fabric and the fact that half of them weren't even wet, it would have registered.  Instead I told the hubby I thought we might need a new washer.  Duh.

You know my 66 yr old hubby, who doesn't have fibro, does as many dumb things as I do if not more so it's not just us with fibro that have these problems. He is the one that put a half gallon of ice cream in the frig to melt all over everything one time, not me, he is the one that plugged an electric drill into the string of Christmas lights one time and blew them all, not me. Everyone I talk to around my age has the same problems with the fog and memory. We just have a better excuse for what we do than most people. smilewinkgrin
 
Donna, I fill the washer up and put soap in it before I put clothes in it, that way I know if it is the right water level and has soap in it. I did too many loads without clothes in them before I learned. I guess if you have the front loading machine you cant do that.

I was at Target the other day, and I was chatting with the check-out gal, paid and walked out of the store with nothing. It was still there when I went back. It was most definetley fibro fog that time.

Hey, today I washed my body with conditioner. My hubby got quite a laugh out of that one.

I think my fibro fog is rubbing off on my hubby.

My sis and bil and baby niece are visiting for a few days, and this morning I was sitting at the kitchen table feeding the baby her bottle when she spit up. I asked hubby to hand me her burp cloth so I could wipe her up, and instead he reached over and handed me the pop tart my son had left on the table...
