I have a hard time remembering if I have already said something or not. I will be thinking it in my head and I know I thought about
that already but did I actually say it out loud or did I just think it? I will walk into rooms...or sometimes just get up and i feel like im lost and I cant remember what I was going to do. If I am doing something and I get interrupted with the phone or having to use the bathroom..by the time I am ready to go back to it, I have completely forgotten what I was doing and just move on to something else never knowing that I was in the middle of something already.
I have difficulties often with just basic math equations. Its something that is really embarrassing to me because I know its simple and I should just know the answer...especially because I always got good grades in HS. I never did well on any review tests though and I think this fog has something to do with it. I had a hard time remembering the things we learned before unless they applied to what we were currently doing.
I tend to have difficulty finding the right words or saying what I mean to say but it is usually the worst when I am anxious. I have generalized anxiety along with a lot of social anxiety...people scare me
so this happens to me a lot unfortunately. The only person who doesnt give me anxiety, at least to some degree, is my husband..thank god for him!
I have also had times where I find it difficult to find the right spelling for a word sometimes, even the simple ones. Or when I am writing, my hand will write letters that arent even supposed to be in that particular word.
All this is frustrating but I have learned and am still learning how to just sort of ignore it. I mean I fix my mistakes but try not to dwell on it but thats hard when someone else catches it. Makes me instantly feel the fool. But at least I know now that im not stupid I just have fibrofog and I blame myself less and blame this darn syndrome more
