Goodness - my fibro fog is really getting to me lately. It's rather scary at times. The other day, while cleaning the house I took a handful of change that I found and threw it right in the trash! Also, when doing bills the other day, I could not find one of the checks I wrote out and had put in an envelope to be mailed. I searched everywhere. Finally I dumped the trash on the floor and I found it, torn out of the envelope, but still in one piece. I think I'm going nuts! I never used to have this trouble. I used to work 12hr shifts in an ER before I had fibro. What's happening to me?

Within the past three months I have backed into a closed garage door, lost only one gas cap(that's a good thing), the hubby is STILL looking for the weedeater and I don't have the nerve to tell him I might have left it by the mailbox and someome stole it...tossed a full carton of ice cream in the trash and put the empty one back in the freezer...made an apple cobbler with paprika instead of cinnamon...can't count the times I have brewed coffee with no coffee.  I gave the thruway attendant a 'washer thingy' instead of a nickel to pay part of my toll.

Why?  Because...I don't know!  Because we can, I guess!

Oh...I forgot to add that I wore two different shoes to the grocery store.

One night while we were on vacation I wanted to go shopping (I know big surprise Sherrine) and the stores were across the interstate from the motel so DH put the motel's address in the GPS so I could find my way back. You could see the motel sign from the mall but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have gotten lost. I can go around the block and get lost and I have, thank goodness for GPS.
 
I still do things that rattles me but for the most part I'm use to the fog.
 
luv and hugs

Hmmmm......I took three tries at giving out my phone number, and STILL got it wrong. Thank goodness it was at my doc's office. They know me there. Know how I am, that is!

I've called my children by names other than theirs, I've had to check my checkbook to find out what my phone number was, and I've tried to start the car with the key to my freezer...twice!
