Feel Like I'm Losing My Mind

I have trouble with words my brain will think one thing and my mouth will say another but I won't even realise until someone points it out and the other day I was helping my 4 year old learn to write but everything I wrote down the letters got jumbled up no matter how hard I tried to concentrate (I know how to spell the words) is this a fibro thing or am I genuinely starting to lose my mind now 😕

Same thing here. I have both fibro fog and chemo fog. I don't know what might come out of my mouth.

It's not just that the right word doesn't come out, but that the right way of saying it, either in the sentence or the inflection, etc so it isn't heard or taken the way it was meant. I had to say the exact same thing 5 times during a car ride until my husband finally came around to the same thing himself, so i could end up saying yeah that's what I've been saying! Then it dawned on him that it was what I said all 5 times. Doesn't stop it from happening again and again and again.

Yes fibro fog causes this. I often say words different from what I meant to say, can't think of words I was going to say. My short term memory is a mess. Because I am not working and not keeping up I forget what day it is. This is what I know about. I could be doing more but just don't remember what I did. LOL what a mess we are.

I have gotten myself in big trouble with family recently due to Fibro fog. And when working on my online business, I have to think out loud for steps to get completed congruently. It is tough I know. Hugs❤️

It happens to me quite often, I try to say one word and another comes out. I now stutter when I get nervous, afraid the wrong word will come out. Makes it hard to have a conversation. I mostly stay in because of it.

Yes it is a fibro thing and I think it gets worse As we get older. It's part of fibro fog. I also have chemo brain. I had breast cancer in 2015. They tell me the chemo brain can last up to 5 years. I've got it double. LOL I feel so stupid sometimes. I have been playing a lot of word games. I think it helps.

Okay so I think by now that Msrj is getting the hint that it's fibro fog as literally all of us have said the same thing, but without anything useful ....
So here's something...

Fibro fog – also known as fibromyalgia fog and brain fog – is a term commonly used for the cognitive difficulties that can occur with fibromyalgia.

What is fibro fog?

What is Fibro Fog?
“My patients tell me that fibro fog feels like they’ve been taking cold medicine constantly,” says Rob Keenan, MD, MPH, assistant professor of rheumatology at Duke University School of Medicine. “They have difficulty concentrating, finding words, holding conversations, feeling alert and remembering things.”

I found this to be a fairly good explanation of it and I hope it clarifies it for you x
