I had a classic fibro fog/ lyme brain moment this week that was truly embarrassing. I’m generally able to hide the fact that fibro has turned me into a total idiot, but this time there was no saving the
humiliation embarrassment. I consider myself am intelligent person and one of the hardest things for me has been the loss of the ability to think quickly and intelligently. Most of the time my brain is literally swimming in some sort of fog.
Earlier this week I received a text from my dentist office reminding me of my dentist appointment on Friday the 28th. My fogged mind apparently processed that as this Friday and so a I made the appropriate child care arrangements and went to my dentist appointment. When the receptionist nicely said they had me scheduled on the next Friday, the 28th, I asked if it was not the 28th? She very politely told me the 28th was in one week. Yep I felt special. She was very nice about it, but that almost made me feel worse. I’m sure she was wondering “what in the world is wrong with this person”! It’s kind of a funny story now (OK really funny), but walking out of the office on Friday I felt like a total idiot. Someday I would love to have my brain back!
