I'm sorry this is bothering you so much and I do understand. The first 'fibro fog' I had was when I returned to college to finish my senior year. I would read something and start at the beginning of a paragraph. By the time I got to the end I had no idea what I read 2-3 sentences before. I was losing the ability to form complete thoughts on a subject. When I was extra tired I couldn't even get through a sentence before I lost my train of thought. Talk about
a hard way to go to school...and you know it well also.
I also found it frightening at times. You feel like something more serious has to be wrong but that was before my dx with fibro. One thing I have been doing for the past several years is puzzles. Some crosswords but more like Word Search of all types, Fill in's and logic puzzles. The 'Variety' puzzle books keep me going for a long time with so many different types. It exercises many parts of my brain.
OK, Sue...you know what I just did? I was thinking about
something I wanted to look for online so in the middle of this post I did a quick search and forgot to
open a new window...and there went my post to you. Except I went back and the page was still in cache waiting for me. What a goofus I feel like at times...lol
Anyway, I would suggest exercising your brain in ways that you feel comfortable. It might help going forward or if not it's still a good thing to do as we age anyway. Use it or loose it!~
