If we all wrote in with our fibrofog episodes we'd soon fill a book which would be hilarious reading - I try to laugh about things I do but there are times when I realise it could be dangerous and times when I wonder if it's more than that and I'm beginning to suffer from some form of dementia... - I mean, how would you know? I managed to spend five minutes trying to work out how to get the nib of the pen to come out - couldn't seem to find a way to pop it out or to twist it - my busband then took pity on me and took the lid off!

I had just lost my mother to alzheimers when I joined the local fibro support group. I was convinced I was starting with alzheimers but the rest of them assured me it was foggy brain. They all went on to relate the crazy things they've done and we all had a good laugh - the best medicine of all. I find it helps to be single-minded e.g. if I go into the kitchen I repeat over and over why I am going and instead of multi-tasking (which we all do), such as picking up the beakers we've just used, I go straight to the reason I went in there. Does that make sense?

I spent ages this evening looking for a present I needed to wrap… Only to remember after 20 minutes of searching that it was the first one I wrapped!

Hello forum
Been a while since I posted. Just thought I would share my experience with fibro fog. Don't know if this applies to any of you, but I can watch a film that I have watched before, and not remember having seen it before.

Also I keep forgetting my PIN numbers for my local bank ATM. I have had around 6 new pin numbers sent out, this is very debilitating to me. People don't understand when you try and explain to them about your condition. Anyone with similar experience.

Regards

Yesterday I went into the kitchen to make a coffee, (decaf), and opened the drawer and could not for the life of me remember what I needed to make a cup of coffee...I went through the knives and forks first before I realized I needed a teaspoon...oh what fun it is....

I constantly have moments where I am just about to do or say something and then it's gone - and then it's back. I'm used to it now.

It's so much worse than just a bad short term memory because I've always had that, but when you try and explain to people they just say "oh yeah my memory is bad too". So I don't bother!
