Feel Like I'm Losing My Mind

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 😕

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.

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

It is fibro fog , Sometime I feel like I'm in a daze or I feel like a zombie trying to cope with this illness I'm 61 and I do forget things and then out of nowhere my answer comes if I looking for something and can't find it, What I hate the worst is talking to someone and completely lose what I'm talking about sometimes it's a couple days later when I'll remember and I'll call or text them and tell them what I was talking about a couple days earlier , This does come along with age my friends my age experience the same thing and they don't havef fibro it is frustrating.

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