It’s been a hot minute or two since I posted anything here. Sometimes in life you just have to decide what priorities deserve your energy and what can be sidelined or dropped. For me social media and blogging have taken a back seat these days.
However, I do still update my letter boards (I have one for work and one for home now) just about every week and thought I would post this one this week, since I know there’s many of you that can relate!
“Not to brag or anything, but I can forget what I am doing while I am doing it!” #FunnyFibroTweet
Have you ever experienced “brain fog” or what us fibro-mates like to call “fibro fog”? Trust me, it is real. Like spending the morning working on your grocery list only to get to the store and realize it is sitting on the kitchen counter. Or walking into a room to get something and forgetting what you were after. Or even better, looking for your glasses or cell phone, only to discover they are either on your head or in your hand. (True stories!!)
This kind of forgetfulness can be paralyzing and disruptive to daily life.
We all have those “momentary lapse of reason” moments that we like to chalk up to “senior moments,” “brain farts,” or whatever you like to call them. Sometimes those moments come with age, sometimes from medication, or from some medical condition. There are ways to cope.
Here are some of my past posts about Fibro Fog if you’d like to read more:
Here’s hoping your Monday full of sunshine, not fog!
