    Last night, while talking to my mom on the phone, I needed to check a phone number for her, and the number was in my cell phone. Well, we chatted for about 5 minutes, while I searched the house for my cell phone. Ummmmm, I finally realized I was talking to her on it. Duhhhhhhh!

    Saturday we went out to buy a new light fixture for the guest bathroom, as we are having the interior of the house repainted, and doing some refurbishing. (After 17 years, it NEEDS it!) I had a bad case of teflon brain, good thing my spouse was there, because the saleslady kept looking at me as if I was nuts when I'd ask her a question she had just answered 3 minutes ago, and that was a minor example of my ditzy brained behavior. Good thing I didn't have to make any major decisions by myself. FibroFog in action, again.

    Having a tough week, seriously considering staying home tomorrow. Between the PMS and the FMS and Fog, I'm not sure how many active brain cells I have at the moment. This too, shall pass... I hope.

    I'm trying to keep smiling today, will see my talk therapist tonight after 2 reschedules, hoping for a quiet day in my office. It's raining, and that usually keeps the kids in their classrooms.

    In fog we trust,
    Beth.

    Sometimes, when it is really bad, I get lost coming home from work. There is one turn that I just do not turn at. And, we're talking a little town, here. LOL Also, had a really big snow storm. My hubby very kindly went out and scraped windows for me so I could go to work. I could not get the car doors open. Yep, tried them all. So, I came back inside, called him at work and said the doors were frozen shut. He said "um, they worked when I tried them before work. Did you unlock the doors". Haven't lived that one down quite yet, but it's only been a week. I'm sure a new fibro fog will set in to give us something to laugh about. :)

    I sent my Dad to get a prescription refilled for my Mother and I had just refilled it the day before! LOL I have also tried to cook my oatmeal in the fridge. I especially love it when you are talking with someone and go blank right in the middle of the conversation. LOL, never a dull moment with us is there?

    The last time I visited my friend in Florida I could tell she was really get peaved by my constantly interrupting her over the course of our visit. I finally said (as I interrupted her once again) "I'm sorry but I have to tell you this before I forget it!" Now that is sad.

    I will be trying to tell John or my mom something and it just all disappears as I am in mid sentence. I then think, why did I even start this conversation!!! One day recently when I was trying to get through an afternoon of work, I transcribe operative reports and do a ton of orthopedics, and I could not remember how to spell finger. Now does that sound crazy or what??!! But yes I know exactly what you mean. I go to another room in the house, by the time I get there, forgot what I went there for so I have to back up and regroup. It gets so frustrating at times.

    Fibrofog is great,isn't it?..LOL..Most of the time I feel nutty,and can only hope that everybody else doesn't think so too.Maybe we should all wear a sign that says--sorry, but the fog is thick right now and I can't see what I'm saying--.LOLOL

    I had a bad case of "The FOG" on Monday...I was in my garage getting ready to go the gym, as I had taken the day off because I did not sleep on Sunday night. So, I go the garage, notice all my windows/sunroof were left down from the night before..Then, since my doors were locked, and for some unknown reason I decided not to use the remote and pull up on lock to unlock the door....WHAMMMMMMM The alarm is screaming....Talk about being scared to death..That shock allmost gave me a heart attack...Talk about a blond/fybor fog moment...LOL

    I thought I was the only 1 experiencing this...the other day I put my puse on the sofa, went to the bathroom, came out and couldn't remember wher I put it. I've always had a very good memory and it's getting really frustrating...my memory is getting worse when it comes to things like that. Is there anything you can do? Samantha (NJ)
