... of fun. I keep forgetting things and in conversations I will be in the middle of a conversation and stop because I can't remember what I was talking about. Once I'm reminded I go on but it's very embarrassing and upsets my husband. I just can't remember things and I get confused and lost or foggy if you may. Is this part of all of this?
Unfortunately, it is. I have it too and when it first started I tried to bluff my way through it.
I couldn't remember significant occasions or what I had for dinner.
Worst of all, I repeated stories that I said the month before.
After a few years, I said something and caught a brief look in my husband's eyes.
I realized he thought I was lying because I contradicted myself!
I came clean and it felt so good! I didn't realize how much energy it takes to try and remember all the time.
I also had word finding difficulties.
I started making a game out of it like charades.
If you laugh about yourself and make a joke out of it, tension was relieved.
It also appears that your not worried. Hopefully he won't either.
I have a new sensitivity to dementia people because they go through the same issues.
You may try going to those brain stimulating sites... Luminosity (I think).
I didn't try it but the reviews were good.
Best wishes and I hope it resolves a bit.
Mine seemed to get better when I stopped trying so hard.
That is a very common symptom of Fibromyalgia. It happens to me all the time and all I can do is laugh about it so I don't get upset. Like me, you have a lot going on but one thing I have told my doctor is that I don't want everything blamed on my Fibromyalgia. It's too easy for the doctors to do that and miss something vital. But back to your main question, you are NOT alone with having Fibro Fog! Hugs
