I was just wondering if any of you who experience fibro fog have mistakenly thought it was that you were extremely forgetful or contributed it to possible ADD.  I always feel that I am very disorganized in my thinking and doing things like cleaning.  Does anyone else experience this?  Somedays I feel so stupid.  My husband has said a few times what are you doing.  It is almost amusing.turn
 
Thanks,
Lisa

OH yeah!!!  I could write a novel about my fog.  Over the years I've come to find more amusement in it, because what else are ya gonna do??  It is what it is.  Of course, I still constantly try to find ways to be more organized.  But then I lose themturn

Lisa, I believe my fog is due to fibro and lupus and yes in my case amusing and crazy.

This morning I began to shave my legs with the shower squeegee, how's that for a close shave?
My fog almost always gives me a good laugh.

I'm not very good at muti- tasking anymore, so I try to focus on one job at a time ie...one day
I will focus on cleaning the bathrooms, the next day maybe dusting... grocery shopping another
day. There are days though I'm pretty good at getting alot done.

My friends think I'm a comedian somedays, it's the fog and I do laugh and laughing is a good
thing.

There are some days that I find the cheese in the freezer and I pick something up only to find it somewhere else.

I thought that I was also suffering from Alztimers(sp).

Lisa, I use to be the most organized, scheduled and on task person I knew, then came fibro, now I do feel like I have ADD sometimes. It is scary at first when you find your little mind out wondering by itself not knowing what it is doing most of the time but it does get funny after you realize your not going to end up a vegetable, just a very unorganized scattered brain person that does some really dumb things.

Hey!  I completely understand.  I read an article (that I printed and can't find. tongue ) about fibro fog and it said that patients will being trying so hard to place a word, etc. and it will feel like a ping pong ball bouncing to different holes until you get to the right one.  One of the things it offered to help this was doing puzzles.  What kinds it didn't say, but I got a word search app and a word scramble on my iPhone and it seems to help playing those to remember what I learned for work to use or something me and my husband were talking about.  If I find it I'll put a link on the forum.

Here is a funny for you. I have been buggin my hubby to trim the hair on his chest cause it climbs out the top of his shirt. He woke up one day and it was shaved. he said he doesn't remember doing it and said I did it. I said I did not! he takes ambian at night so I say he did it and doesn't remember. So who has the fog me or him? hahahahahah

Here's another funny:  When my younger daughter was 10, she silently slithered on her belly all the way across the room to where her dad was playing computer games, reached her arms under the desk to his foot, painted all the toenails, put a DECAL on the big one(!) and slithered back out.  Then she told him what she'd done, and he didn't believe her.  He was flabbergasted!!! yeah This is a very smart man who has a laser-beam type of consciousness, an eye for details, but tends to be unaware of his body.  This could never happen to me - I am WAY too distractible and WAY too aware of my body - I would probably jump 10 feet if someone suddenly touched my toe!  Family lore!

I like the story about the ambien and the painted toenails. My husband and I both take ambien and he does things that he doesn't remember. He falls asleep in the chair if he doesn't go right to bed and then we have conversations that he doesn't even remember. It is too funny.

But when games and puzzles were mentioned for therapy, I loved that. Now I have an excuse for Bookworm. I play that all of the time.

Hugs, Karen

I was so happy when I heard about fibro fog. I did not know this was a symptom until I was dx'd. My family always teased me about my bad memory when I was a child. When I was in high school I would get confused about where my next class was. As an adult my kids would tell me that I forgot to do this n that. My husband always says that I told him something already. I was starting to think I had early dementia.

YIPPIE, it's just the fibro fog. tongue
