If you Read Christmas & Fibromyalgia and could not comment... remember Fibro Fog

Updated on December 26, 2010

BIG New mistake

For anyone who has FM and has not yet been told that one of the many symptoms is confusion or “Fibro fog,” I am here to give you a sigh of relief.

 I have had it many years.  And some of the things I have done is well… almost unbelievable.  Like once I forgot one of my children when we went to a Memorial Day Event in the local park. I’d forgotten we had another child with us.  I counted five heads.  Got home and had to rush back to the park.  There he stood, patiently.

Another time I was at a church social and I was so exhausted I went home and just sat in my chair and started to fall asleep when someone knocked on the door and said “Does this belong to you?” as she gently nudged my child in the door.  Horrors… I’d totally forgotten she existed.

Some days

So, confusion and memory vacations are not necessarily a symptom of age, but also a big part of Fibromyalgia at times.

Most recently I made a really big boo boo (this one I am admitting).  I deleted my comment capsule, and did not know it, on my Fibromyalgia and Christmas hub.

So if you read the hub, any comments you could pass along would be most appreciated.  My coach for hub pages, my daughter, helped me restore the capsule for comments.

I hope you all have had a great Week and are doing well!

Smiling signifies sunshine in the heart.

      Thank you for this article. I’d like to share my story, how I managed to control fibromyalgia almost completely, in hope it will help someone. Wrote a blog here:

      I can only imagine how frustrating having FM is for you as well as painful. Thank you for sharing and educating us on what it is all about.

      I was going to write a witty, hilarious, thoughtful comment, but I forgot what I was going to say.

      Nice article. :)
