I picked three large cucumbers from our garden and promptly lost them!  I looked in the garden, in the pool shed, on all the outside tables, in the garden shed, the bathroom, the bedroom closet, the laundry room, the pantry and refrigerator, the living room, and finally gave up. 
 
Then I picked a lemon off our tree and set it in the kitchen sink and voila, there were the cucumbers - they were in the sink the entire time!
 
Wow.

LOL...oh Sue, I can relate so well!! For me, it's not so much losing things as it is putting things in weird places.

For example, I went to put a plate in the dishwasher this morning and promptly threw it in the garbage can instead.

Try to laugh these things off - it's the best way to save your sanity!

Hey Sue!

That's good news. Now can you find the strainer basket for my sink??? It's a double sink and about 3 days ago one of the strainer baskets was not in either one of them when I did dishes. Now I know I misplace things but sheesh....that's ridiculous! or as one grandson says...that's 'freediculus!'...lol If you find my missing basket in your tool shed will you email it to me please???

Nothing will make you feel crazier than losing your cucumbers! turn smilewinkgrin I hate looking all over the house for something I JUST HAD in my hands!

Chutz, I'm sure you will find your strainer baskets lying next to the garbage disposal plug I lost a couple of months ago....

My fog story for the day: This morning, I used a Q-tip and antibiotic cream. I put the used Q-tip on my vanity table and threw the antibiotic cream in the trash. *yuck*

Gotta love fibro fog. rolleyes

I burst out laughing when I read your post, Sue! What gets me is how we keep doing these things year after year. I keep expecting that with enough time, I will somehow train my mind to be more present or linear or whatever it is not. But something tells me that this is the way it's gonna be for the forseeable future. I am not making progress! I have notes to myself all over the place, but never remember where. More clouds in the forecast, I'm afraid....

I love your thread title!

I once threw money in the trash, and was in too much pain to pick through it and find my quarters - so I left them there. And I'm broke most of the time.

Sue, you made me hungry for cucumbers, they are going on my grocery list.

I have already found a box of Kleenex in my refrigerator...cold...cold...makes sense?

You all make me feel so much better about myself.  I am so crazy that it worries me sometime. 
 
about a year ago I posted about throwing $800.00 away in the trash can when I cleaned out my freezer and threw seeds away that my DH had saved for two or three years.  I forgot that he had put the cash in with the package of seeds for safe keeping.  I still grieve over that mistake.  We didn't miss it for about three months when he needed some cash for something.  It was too late then.  I did remember throwing the seeds out.  Actually he took it better than I did.  I still grieve over that mistake. 
 
My mother has three sisters that have all suffered from Alzheimers and I don't actually know if that is my problem or if it is due to Fibro, but I sure do silly things. 
 
I'm hoping it is Fibro so maybe I won't go completly off my rocker.
 
God Bless!

Southern lady, I mentioned alzheimers to my rheumy and he asked me 3 questions......what did you have for breakfast, what day is it, and who is president (I think those are the three)  He said that alzheimers or dementia patients will make something up if they don't know the answer whereas non alzh & dementia patients will say I don't know or say I had only coffee for breakfast instead of making uo a great sounding nutritious meal.
 
Unless my cell is in its case on my side I usually have to go looking or call it.............and I leave my car keys in the ignition at home, that way I don't have to go looking for them.

Thanks Denise, for the information.  I do know the answer to those three questions and don't have to make up an answer.  I worry so much about it and maybe that's what stress's me out and makes me so forgetful.

GSDgirl,

Aren't you afraid that somebody will steal your car? I would be scared to do that here. But I keep my keys in my purse and don't use the purse that often. But I always double check to make sure that they are there.

God bless all of you.

When I asked my rheumy about forgetting everything, he asked me if I could still balance my checkbook. I said I never balance my checkbook, DH does that. But I can still figure out what a 30% off sale price is. Diane turn

getting by, when I go to the store I do lock my car but the keys always go into my right front pocket.  Here at the office and even when we lived upstairs I never took the keys out or locked it.  At home it usually goes into the garage but even if it didn't the sound of 5 barking Shepherds would make one think twice tongue

I truly thought I would find the cucumbers in the laundry basket on top of the washing machine!  Don't ask why - I have no idea!  but I remember thinking, "Aha!  They are in the laundry basket!!!"  idea    Imagine my disappointment when they were not there.  To  keep from losing the lemon, I repeated to myself over and over, "do not lose the lemon.  do not lose the lemon."  smilewinkgrin   
 
At least we can keep ourselves entertained!

Right now I'm hunting for my umbrella.  We are now in the rainy season and I've turned the house upside down. 
 
I'm always misplacing my cordless phone.  It has a button on the base that you can push and the phone will beep to help you find it but I'm deaf.  Lot of help that is!  tongue

Here is another good one.  I have been looking for plastic ware for 2 days.  It is hay baling season and I do the cooking and clean up.  I ended up using silverware.  I am at the office waiting for UPS to pick up and low and behold THIS is where all the plastic ware is.  It is coming home with me as we have company coming in to stay with us. for 10 days and on 2 consecutive weekends there will be family reunions (both hubbys family).  I think I will need a week off when it is all over shocked

I have often wondered - and I'm dead serious here - if there isn't some other dimension that things hide in when we can't find them, and that spits them back out again when and where we least expect them.  turn
My family looks at me askance when I refer to "the void."  I haven't convinced them yet.  But if I can't find something that's what I blame.

Lol that cracked me up!! Im always losing things specaily my keys.  But recently a shirt that my mom had went missing.  I do her laundry each week and had remembered seeing the shirt when I did her clothes but was so sure I had givin it back to her.  So I checked every nook and cranny in my house and nada,my mom said she had looked in her closet and it wasnt there and she JUST had to have it back.  So after tearing my house apart I went back to her apartment and said"did you look really well for it?" then she says "oh ya know I dont remember if I had my glasses on when I looked" now she is blind as a bat without her glasses so I went to look in her closet and there it was right in the front!!! I should have looked at her house first lol.  But Mom is getting up in her years(79)and do you know what she told me?  "I bet you just put it there now to drive me nuts"cant win with her but got to love her anyways.  And today I was looking for my SSI check and my hubby had to put his 2 cents in with "we are screwed without that money"  and "how could you lose your check and your so irresponsible" blah blah blah I found it after a few minutes(right in my wallet,imagine that lol).  Fibro fog strikes again!!

I just wanted to say, thanks for the laugh I need it desperately. I lost my lil brother three years ago, two days ago. And his K9 partner. IED Explosion, in Iraq. I've been down in the dumps and more depressed, as I am just accepting the deaths. Between the sad memory, taking care of my grandma who has dementia, I was like what happened when I saw "I'm losing my cucombers" and Died laughing as I thought it was going to be a problem of some sort that actually didnt involve losing cucombers the vegetable LOL. Thanks for the laugh!

I think that I have done just about all of the above.  What really bugs me is when I know that I have just gotten something at the store,  only to be unable to find it after getting home just a few hours later.  I usually find it in some unlikely spot sometime later.  What is even worse is finding out that I put it exactly where it should have been, but didn't remember!
 
I am constantly losing my keys.  My husband's favorite story is about his driving our suv down a busy street in our town when a man pulls up beside him, and motions for him to roll his window down.  The man then yelled, "Hey, do you know that there is a set of keys hanging out of the lock on your back door?"  Of course, they were mine, left there after carrying in groceries the day before.  I think that my worst incident occured back when I was still single.  I couldn't find my keys one evening after returning from shopping and carrying in several items.  I tore the house apart, checked my purse, the car ignition, and all of the other usual places.  I was frantic, as there were keys to my home as well as my office and vehicles.  I went to bed feeling very frusterated.  The next day, I was mowing the lawn.  I "found" my set of keys with the lawn mower.  They flew into the side of my van at close range, leaving a small dent. I had laid them down on the lawn while I was carryiing groceries in, and they had been hidden by a large flowering plant. Surprisingly, most of the keys were not damaged.  I was just thankful that they had only hit my vehicle, and not one of my neighbors or their vehicles!

Oh these are great! Today I ate breakfast twice! I had peanut butter toast with my Paxil. Later on d.h. came home from work and made pancakes. He asked me "aren't you going to eat?" Well of course I am! I never refuse a meal. why oh why was I feeling so full? Then it dawned on me. I had already eaten for the morning. Oh, I also lost my dish cloth that I put down for just a second. It was in the sink the whole time hiding under a big mixing bowl. yeah
I've been diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks.
My symptoms are......backache, severe headaches that Tylenol and Iboprofen won't touch, problems concentrating and problems remembering stuff, constipation, sleep disturbances, I tire easily, sometimes weakness,sometimes aches and pains,more heart palpitations lately too,  Im sure there is more but it's hard to think. Zyrtec for allergies and sometimes a nasal decongestant.
 
I take Paxil and sometimes Ativan for my anxiety. Over the counter I take a multivitamin, stool softener, a vitamin B supplement when I remember, AZO yeast when I remember. I think I've given up on Tylenol and Ibuprofen but have turned to Aleve, pain patches, pain creams, and my best friend my heating pad.
