When I’m in a flare my brain is much more mushy than it normally is. Brain Fog is my middle name all of the time but with my extra fatigue, new and increased meds, low potassium and who knows what else, I can think of something one second and forget it the next. I have to have everything written down and have the list with me. I’ve called my older daughter about things we talked about already. I’ve forgotten about my Aunt’s birthday. I forgot to tell my youngest daughter how proud I am of her on her last day of school. The list goes on.
Trying to fight this depression, I’m finding that laughing at myself again is very helpful. Having a lot to laugh at is even more helpful. I’ve been watching funny movies. I’ve been thinking of ways to torture my doctors. I’m researching cures like inserting flash memory into my brain, using sponges for the bottom of my feet to remove toxins and using candles to remove wax from my ears. It’s amazing how many scams are out there online. But they sure are fun to read about, especially the testimonials.
Beware of them and of me, at least for a while!
