So, I get in the shower this morning and wash my hair. I decided it was really dry, stumbled out of the shower and without my glasses, reached in the vanity drawer for a tube of Clairol Intensive Hair Conditioner. Get back under the shower, rub it in and immediatley know something isn't right. So true... I have lathered my whole head in Cortaid.
Tonight we had pizza. I ate two small slices and reached for another and suddenly my mouth felt funny. First my tongue tingled then it started to burn...the roof, my lips...everything. I KNOW I did not put the hot crushed peppers my husband had poured all over his on mine. He even said I didn't but in the back of my mind I keep thinking....could I have done it without knowing? Then I started wondering if the pizza hut used peanut oil, as I am allergic to nuts.
We have talked about THE FOG a bazillion times on this forum...forgetting movies you have seen several times, reading the same book over and over...but I am really getting concerned that I will do something dangerous to myself because I just don't pay enough attention to things and cannot get it through my head I have to look twice at every single item I touch. I think I mentioned in another post that I cleaned the windows in the back of the house with Spot Shot Stain remover because the bottle was the same color as the Windex.
The pain is bad enough, but I think The Fog is even worse. Having to stop and REALLY THINK about every single move I make is really getting to me and wearing me out. I have had Fibro for years and never been through such a long period of fog...Does it ever lift? In the past, it was the pain that got to me. I am very lucky that I have gone through long periods of time without major, debilitaing symptoms. I know some of you don't ever get a break so I feel very fortunate.
I'm afraid to drive the car in the snow as I had the first accident I ever had in my life a few weeks ago. I feel the fear setting in, as I also suffer from GAD and just pray I don't hurt someone as I wander around, a human weapon!
Just needed to vent...I know there is no answer. I think I should have called a pharmacist though, because my eyes are still burning from the Cortaid!
