Any of you folks noticed more minor accidents during stress or during the first part of a flare?

Last week I spilled a coke into a computer keyboard -- 1st time ever, and have worked on computer keyboards with a coke nearby since 1975!

Today I spilled laundry soap all over a raw plywood floor (intended to paint it last week, but that didn't happen, now I wonder if the paint will even stick?!)

I'm afraid to finish the laundry!! I guess I'm lucky that I'm out of bleach!

It's very unlike me to spill or drop things, so I'm not really on the lookout for these kinds of things!

ARG. Very small vent over now....please return to your regularly scheduled program...

You know I had this same issue. I slammed my car into a mailbox, dropped everything, I would think I was pouring a drink and totally miss the glass. I went and had my eyes checked and had to get glasses. *with bifocals* I don't want to worry you, but it was also the very subtle beginning of my bout with cerebritis. Be aware and watch for further symptoms. Take care, Judy

I go through times like that. Especially when I'm stressed out. I know you have a lot going on right now. Rightly so. If you are anything like me not only do I get clumbsy I get very forgetful. Such as walking into a room and forgetting why I went there. Putting things down and forgetting where I put them. The brain can only handle so much. I think my muscles get weak too so my coodination is off. Yes I agree this is not the time for bleach! turn

Oh!  Can I join the clumsy club too!!  Man, it's bad sometimes. I walk into walls, coffee table corners, I drop things, trip on air.  You name it. I have the bruises to prove it too.  My clumsiness is bad during flares, but even when I'm not in one, I'm prone to doing stuff like that.  It's weird!
