I seemed to have lost a few days

Saturday, May 10, 2014

I remember doing things but it feels like I was on automatic pilot. Today when I logged into SP I was surprised to find I had not just missed one day but three. It all seemed to be blended together into one and I can't remember everything I did since I last logged in. I know I didn't spend much time on computer or watching TV. because that's too much of a strain when the fibro fog takes over. I remember thinking I have to do something active yesterday and I took the dog out for a short 15 min. walk. Neither one of us was up to doing my regular routine. At noon yesterday my husband came into the room and noticed I still had almost my full bowl of cereal in front of me not eaten so I finished it without really tasting what I was eating. It had been sitting alongside me since 8 am. It was 8 pm. before I ate a bowl of left over turkey noodle casserole. Sometime around dinner time remembered that I needed to have more protein and ate a protein bar. Thinking and making and eating food and doing anything becomes too challenging to think of the process involved when my mind becomes all fogged up. I had tried to work on a ruffled multi=colored crocheted dress for my grand daughter but I had to rip out the same four rows three times to try and get it done right. I finally gave up as I didn't have the concentration necessary for thinking straight. I had even gone over to my DIL's house to ask her what the instructions meant because I couldn't see what it meant for me to be doing. It was really simple instructions that normally I wouldn't have had a problem figuring out but yesterday it was like trying to figure out trigonometry. Still foggy today but I am not giving up and whenever I have any clarity I am going to come on SP and journal what I am going through so others with FM or other chronic pain that causes them to live in a daily fog can see they are not alone. I also am hoping I will discover something helpful by blogging whenever I am able.
Thanks to my friends for their support that they give to me that encourages and motivates me to return.
