Today I was driving my nieces to see the Georgia Guide Stones and I had a very scary fog moment.
I was driving along and forgot I was driving! smhair
I started drifting off the side of the road on a small curve when my niece suddenly screamed, "What are you doing?!!!"
Shocked I straighten the wheel up and was alert again. My response to her was "I just started drifting." To keep her from being terrified more I didn't tell her I forgot I was driving.
 
This shook me up something terrible. smhair
 
Any of you ever have this happen before?

That is scary. Did you feel out of it before you got in the car? If I feel foggy, I don't drive because my skills are subpar then.

I take a bunch of vitamins daily. Flexeril on an as needed basis.

I imagine that was scary. I'm glad you are okay!

Were you falling asleep while awake or something along those lines?

My scariest fog moment was a year or two ago when I was up really late at night on the computer at 5 a.m. which actually wasn't uncommon for me at the time. My significant other went into the basement and the lights were off in the room I was in so all that I saw was the blazing lights from the computer screen and surrounding darkness. I was reminiscing about a time in college and then suddenly I got 'stuck' in this sort of timeless state of consciousness. For about 7 seconds I stared at the computer screen and I did not know where I was, what time it was, what year it was or anything. Its sort of as if traveling back to that memory left me lost and I was unable to travel back into the present.. my brain lost touch with my reality and couldn't find its way back... It was scary... I think it was a combination of brain fog and sleepiness together.. but I'm really doubting that if I was fully healthy that would have happened to me.

I try not to drive in a fog. Yesterday was a really bad foggy day for me, but I was feeling okay to drive today.
For a moment I was just not there. If she hadn't yelled I might have ran off the road.

I'm hoping this will not be a regular thing for it to hit sudden without warning on a good day. It makes me worry about driving myself now.
