Gennie, fibro fog is forgetfulness. Sometimes things are right on the tip of our tongue but we can't pull it out. We have trouble remembering names, etc. Sometimes we draw a complete blank! But, a good sense of humor helps a lot. One time I was out and I needed to give my phone number. Do you think I could remember it? NOT! I had to pull out my checkbook and look on my checks to remember it. You just have to laugh and move on.
Don't be afraid to leave the house! You have nothing to be afraid of. You take one step at a time and never let fibromyalgia run your life. You can work around it if it gets in the way. You need to pace yourself so you get accomplished what you need to. Don't try to overdo, though. You will know if you have, because your body will scream at you! Just take one day at a time.
We are here to help, too. Just ask and we will let you know how we handle things. That's what we're here for. Meanwhile, try to relax and not think about fibro so much. It's a part of your life but you will learn how to live a full and enjoyable life in spite of it!
By the way, dh means dear husband. Have a good day!
