You've been laying in front of the fan panting like a dog for hours wondering why it is so @#$$*&% hot in the house....and then you realize at some point you were cold and must have turned the air conditioner off!! Ggrrr!!! smhair
Cant wait to jump into Sherrine's pool! It's too hot!

Hahaha..I've done that before. It's been warmer here past couple of days (low 80's) but not too bad. Haven't needed the air on, so that's good. Hope it cools off for you soon!

My total fibro fog moment today was when I was trying to tell my son to close his bedroom door so the dog wouldn't go in there (he likes to go get on their bottom bunk), but instead of saying "go close the door to your room", I said "go close the room to your door" not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!! Duh!! rolleyes

Or how about telling an expectant mother that back when I was pregnant for my kids, we didn't have all these sophisticated tests they can do now and I was just thankful they were born with twelve finger and toes!

Lost in Philly, I thought you were going to say you turned on the heat instead of the air conditioning!  Now, THAT'S something I might do!  shocked

Donna, are you from the Stewart side of the family? tongue   Each time my parents and aunts and uncles had children, my GM would check all the children when they came home from the hospital. When I had my first child, my mother reminded me of that story. I laughed, but I also checked, just wanted to be sure. lol

I tried to turn on the fan to move the a/c around, I kept hitting the button, Nothing! I was so upset thinking the fan was broken, I finally realized I was hitting the oscillate button. Too many buttons for my comfort.  Not one of my better days. So sad!

God bless.  Alice.

Fibro Fog Moments

The buzzer on the clothes dryer went off. Go to get the towels out of the dryer and
all I find is a dryer sheet and the wet towels still sitting in the washer.

Try repeatedly to open the sunroof of my car using the garage door opener.

Leaving the shopping mall and go to the parking ramp to look for my car only to
remember after 10 minutes I did not park in the ramp.

Fibro Fog is really crazy.

I'm glad that there's an explanation. I was getting seriously worried about myself. Couldn't remember the right words anymore. Would say the wrong things. Walk into the wrong rooms for something and then forget what I was going to get. Thought I had some creepy weird young Alzheimers (which my grandpa had before he died last Oct.).

Have lost in these surgeries: appendix, 8 in. intestine, R fallopian tube, gallbladder, 10 in. intestine

Oh Joie- yes, there is an explanation. Don't let anyone who doesn't have fibro try to convince you this is "normal" for everyone...I have heard that and get so frustrated! Actually, it is "normal" for people under a lot of stress...there is so much thinking going on that the stess takes away from "normal" thinking and talking. Hmmmm..another link between fibro and stress?
OK I will really go to bed now and stop posting. Blame it on better pain meds....percoset does not make me drowsy, it keeps me awake. Going to be a long night....

See, that's something I might have said on purpose... LOL.
