major fog

So, I have been pretty much out of work, filling in for some odd jobs here and there and really really need the money. I just can't seem to focus at all. I am all over the place. I think of what I want to do, make lists, etc, but when the day comes I walk around in a daze. I just cant complete a task. I feel tired from not sleeping. (between aches.pains and hot flashes) and I know what I need to do, but just dont' have the desire. It's so frustrating.

Just let me know if you guys feel this way.....if you can remember to! (gotta laugh, right?)

Re: major fog

Sounds familiar! I try and keep track of what makes it worse. Sometimes its a hot shower. Sometimes if I ran a lot of errands. hang in there

Hi! I'm Ree, I'm new and just recently diagnosed with this and i do feel the same way. Im so scared because I am a realtor, and have been out of work since November due to other physical problems ( you can read it in the book i wrote for my introduction lol) anyway. Im scared because IF i go back, which i really do not think I am , if i forget something crucial i can get in a lot of trouble and there is so much to remember. I mean its not hard being a Realtor, but no one ever said it was easy either. Anyway..you are not alone and I too need money so much, but am still out of work on docs orders so still have a lot of time to think about it. I hope things get better for you!


~ Ree

Re: major fog

move over tm, i'm going to sit by you for this one. in the fog too. part fibrofog and part ptsd trigger the other day. between the two i am a ghost walking in the dark. giggle. lost my laughter for a few days but it's back now and that always makes it easier. i am so grateful no one needs me to think or function, not even me.
i hope you and ree are able to find the end of the tunnel of fog and get at least the income aspect of your lives in a safe zone. breath slowly and deeply. it does help with remembering.
peace,
blue

Re: major fog

I too am cursed with this symptom...brain fog...I can't remember half the things I say or do or need to do for that matter. I found it handy to write in a small notebook whether I've taken my many meds for the day. If I had any new symptoms the Doc may want to know about...etc...It seems to help a little...Maybe with all the Brain fog ppl out there the Post it Notes company won't go out of business!...lololol

Re: major fog

TM, I hear ya on the fog, been fighting that myself. If you're in the middle of menopause, that also will likely add to the fog..just what you need 'eh.

I have found writing things down only goes so far, you have to remember to read what you wrote. I found a neat little post it note program for the computer that will leave stickeys on your desktop screen and even pop up to remind you. Also I email myself reminders thru calendars on line
