    Yes, I do that Rita, it always surprises me when it happens, its like a short circuit or something.

    Another similar thing happens too, I am feeling fairly good one moment, and then out of the blue-- a wave of feeling ill, suddenly runs over me.

    Sure makes it hard to plan anything....when you never know whats around the corner.

    I do this also especially around the house. I will be doing one task then see something else that needs to be done and then something else. Well, sometimes I just go lay down because my head hurts trying to think of the one thing I need to do most. I cannot organize-I forget why I go into a room. It is not any fun. Today I got lost coming home and nothing looked familar and I was on a street that I see everyday.

    Between that and pain, I finally had to quit working.
    It's so strange because sometimes I can actually feel it begin to wash over me as it starts. One minute great, the next non-functioning.

    Now how does that make us crazy if we were actually fine to begin with??

    When I tell my husband about my fibro moments, he says I do that too and I am normal. He says everybody does that, you just worry too much. Then I wonder if he is right? I always feel so unsure about this whole fms thing. What do you think and why does everyone else's symptoms here sound so familiar?

    At first, I blamed it on the drugs, but it doesn't seem to matter whether I have taken them or not. It's almost like being stone cold sober one moment, and the next moment feeling like you just drank a fifth of whatever. It can be pretty scary if I am out alone.

    Also have a problem completing task. I will skip from one task to another and feel so overwhelmed that I don't know which one to work on. I'll go and lay down and rest before I can complete my chore. Disorientation (more like a fog?) Last week grabed the trash can opened the ice box and as I was about to toss it I realized what I was doing.

    I was thinking that same thought yesterday and read this.... found it interesting....
    the army using"go pills" for the air force stated this research..... 18 hours of wakefulness is equal to the reactions of .05 blood alcohol level...if we aren't sleeping is this causing this????? something else to think about! Good luck!
