Things like that happen to me often, and people think it's hilarious, because they don't understand that it's actually a problem, they just think I'm joking.
I'm just wondering if it's a "just me" thing, or if it happens to a lot of fibro sufferers? Edited by Admin This member has left the community, therefore replies to this post are switched off Like 0 The ability to reply to this post has been turned off.
My nan always said ''If you can make at least one person laugh a day, your doing a good thing''.
I make people laugh a lot by getting words mixed up so at least some one is happy lol x jacksie 6 years ago yes i slur a lot too,i tend not to speak so much when i'm worst,i find i'm worst on the phone,that's truly embarrassing,i have to say errr,ooh sorry i'll ring you back,that happens regularly.
I used to be very opinionative,not any more, lose my words half way through. I'm really bad at getting my kids names wrong in that I will be talking about them or to them and call them their brothers name,sometimes even the dogs!
I find it really hard to keep up with the detail of conversations that I'm having like over coffee. If someone tells me about a situation in their lives and mentions names I can't keep track of who said what to who, its awful.
I prefer to email people because then I have a record of what I said and what they said back. Phone calls can be difficult too,I end up sitting with a pen and write down the details of the chat we are having like if talking about holidays I write down their destination s dates they go, come back and who they will be seeing or staying with cos I know it will just be a complete blur once I've put the phone down.
Do you know the feeling when someone says do you remember I told you about I sometimes worry that I'm well on the way to senality already! If I have to go see a consultant at the hospital or anyone like a lawyer there's no way I'd go alone cos it would all go in one ear and out the other, so my poor long suffering hubby has to always go with me.
Actually I think some of this could be dyslexia too not that i'm diagnosed with that but because It's the same when I read a book, I can't keep up with who is who and end up reading the page over and over. Thanks to the Harry Potter films I at least have some grasp of the stories but couldn't begin to tell you the plots even though I've read the books except the last 2 Sometimes when I've read a book my hubby reads it after me cos that's the only way I can discuss it by being prompted by him.
Actually writing this down makes me realise I have quite a problem here but I shouldn't be so hard on myself really cos it's obviously the fibro fog!
Anyone else think they might be dyslexic too btw? I think we must have been cloned coz I do all the above except calling people by the wrong name, I just cant think of it at all, lol. I know its dyslexia when I read absolute rubbish that isnt really rubbish.
I read your comment as "I take a lawyer with me This week, Fibro fog has kicked in again as ive not had a clue what day it is, all week. Very frustrating, isnt it??!! And the government expect me to do a job?
I have to keep a good sense of humour about it or id worry myself stupid that ive got Altzheimers or something. I do get some funny looks, but i quite like being "mad"!! I Get words around the wrong way and sometimes can't remember the names of everyday objects. I just end up laughing at myself to hide my embarrassment!!
Like newaysgirl above I often call the kids by the wrong name -- really embarassing when I call my son by one of my daughters names or quite often calling them by the dog's name also!!! I actually seem to remember dog's names better than their owners names I also cannot remember the plots in books and films Also have a habit of "putting" things in the wrong places reading glasses in the microwave and newspaper in the fridge -- to name but a few!
PS like you ukwahine I have been living in Scotland for 14 years and really love it here would have been better if I could have left the fibro in England though: It's comforting to feel I am not alone anymore with this debilitating condition FM.
I was thinking I was suffering from early dementia, but reading the comments I realise it's all part of FM.This summer, try telling mixed-up fairy tales for your family artists dates, road trips, plane trips, camping trips, bedtime, and even waiting rooms.
