Brain Fog

Man I feel stupid after watching a movie (DVD) this afternoon
I turned the T.V. back on, and on for 2 hrs there was no cable..
So I then called the cable company to report the trouble.
They asked me to turn on another T.V. in the house, I thought
how stupid the cable is out! I turned on the kitchen and it worked
then walked back to the T.V. and noticed the VCR was on
causing the scramble(i must have hit the wrong button), I felt so stupid having the tell the scr there was no outage after all!

The worst thing about brain fog is the realization you have it. It would be nice if it was bad enough that you didn't know you had it!

What I found so bad about the was when my family started threatening to pin my name on the front of my jammies in case I wandered off.

Oh yes!
1.) I left my pocket book in JC Penney
2.) My daughter asked for a glass of milk,
I gave her the bottle of bleu cheese dressing
3.) I put the milk in the cabinet, and the
cereal in the fridge!
I could go on.......and on

Brain Fog

Oh good, it's not just me. I went into a grocery store the other day where I shop very often and know exactly where to find everything in the store. I walked in needing only milk, bread and eggs. While still in the parking lot, I felt fine. I walked through the door of the store and went blank. I had NO CLUE where they keep the milk. I just stood there and finally I asked one of the clerks where the milk is and she said in aisle one. I said "aisle one?" I apparently looked very confused so she just pointed.

Then it cleared and I was OK. I found my milk, paid for it and went home. Oops - didn't I also need eggs and bread? Well, I was home already when I realized it and decided to just do without and I went to the couch like a 90 year old with dementia and took a nap. The fog is comes and goes in varying degrees but I wish it would just GO and stay away.

Thank you guys, its nice to know Im not alone.
Its kindof scary and frustrating isnt it?
Thanks for making me laugh.
I was afraid this was permanent, glad to hear it wont last forever, cause I was wondering how I would make out when I go back to work.
At least I get extra little walks in ( cause I forget " what did I go into that room for ?" )

Yes the brain fog does clear up....but should we admit to that?
I'm wondering if I shouldn't try to "milk" it for all it's worth! IT'd be kind of cool if I could blame my "normal state of ditzyness" on something medically related...commonly referred to as BRAIN FOG!

I was in such a fog shortly after surgery...that I'm watching TV shows now for the "first time"! My DH says I already watched them with him when they were first on....and he said I enjoyed them then too!! (We'll attribute that to drugs...not just fog!)
