Hello Everyone,

I work in an industry where being correct is paramount. Down the smallest detail, everything needs to be correct.

When I'm flaring, I tend to make errors with these small details, or I miss them all together. So, whenever I can during a flare, I try to put aside important projects and work on smaller things that don't require too much focus. But, I cannot always do this, because things become due, flare or no flare.

It has happened a couple of times now that I have made errors on small details that have caused BIG problems - a simple typo can cause huge problems, so you can imagine the focus it takes!! It is pretty awful when it happens, as it makes me look like I'm sloppy or that I rush through my work. Well, it happened again. I found out this morning that I made a type of error like this and I was spoken to in a very condescending way that I need to "be more careful" in the future, that this is "a prime example of why we need to always re-check our work". rolleyes   This particular person has no idea that I have Fibro.

I guess I just needed to get this off my chest to others who experience Fibro-fog in all it's glory. Thanks for listening....

I'll be ok....

I know what you mean by focus also. I work in a medical office as a receptionist. When I'm not feeling good things get missed and I forget to get money from the ppl that come in. AHHHH!!! It's just a mess.

Hi Kerri
I know what you mean about trying to focus and  not being able to.  When I was working, I did the training of all the new hires.  I had to tell my boss that I couldn't do training in the evening anymore because I couldn't focus on what I was trying to teach these people.  I hadn't been diagnosed with FM yet, but I think I've had this for a long time.
I hope things get better for you.  Remember, we all know what you are going through. 
Have a great day

Hara, I'm glad you are feeling better too.
 
I am ok now.  I snapped out of it a little while after I posted.  I reminded myself that fibro-fog errors do not mean that I am incompitent or a failure.   I am doing my best and that is all I can ask of myself.
 
Thanks, everyone.
 
Maybe a gentle hug, Jokat.  :-)   Thanks for offering.

Don't disclose to anyone at work what you have. It's not anyone's business. I know what your going through. Just re-check your work. I park next to the handicapped parking not on it. Sometimes I use the cane. I don't want people to find out what I have. I
fearfull more of discrimination.
