I had the worst case of brain fog this morning that I have ever had. First, I thought I lost my purse when shopping for a new printer. Then, if that wasn't bad enough, I thought I lost my rent money for the month. I thought I either left it in my purse that I thought I left somewhere, or that someone broke into my house and stole it. Luckily, neither thing happened, but it really scared me because I must have blanked out for awhile. Anyway, my boyfriend doesn't have any patience with me anymore, and he is handling a lot of stress in his life too, so I can't much blame him. I knew my fellow lupus friends would understand how I feel. Sometimes this brain fog can be funny, but other times, when it is really serious stuff, it's terrible. I just had to let you guys know how I felt.

DOW,
Yes, I know the feeling very well. I sometimes can't remember what I stepped to the pantry to get, so I go back to my cooking and then realize what I needed from the pantry. I solved the purse problem by using a fanny pack for a purse. That way, it's always attached to me, so I can't leave it somewhere.
I'm glad you found your purse and your money.
Hugs,
Marla

I have never lost my purse but before I leave anywhere I have a mental check list...is my wallet in my purse, do I have my purse, where are my keys, did I remember all my purchases, wheres my car. Like that oh and I had a horrible problem of locking myself out of my car so before I leave the my car I make sure I either have my keys in my hands or put it them in my purse and I don't lock the car anymore until I double check where are my keys are.

Mica, I like your idea about a checklist and I am going to try it, but a mental one won't work for me because my brain fog can be so bad at times. I will try a written checklist. Thanks for your idea.

Mica. A locksmith once made me an extra door key and made me lace it into my shoe. Now I don't lock myself out of the car as long as I have my key shoes on. Otherwise my keys has to be I. My hand

I have an extra key for my house, and an extra key for my truck in a pocket in my wallet. As forgetful as I can be, I never forget my wallet. In the same pocket I have a card with important phone numbers written on it, and a calling card I can use at any payphone if/when I get lost (cellphones don't work very well here). I know the area I live in like the back of my hand, yet I've gotten lost on my way home from the grocery store a couple of times now. The keys, numbers, and calling card are a sort of brainfog survival kit I guess.

I have gotten lost in my house. It is a two bedroom 1 bath. Yes. I was lost. I guess that may be the reason I am not really supposed to drive anymore eh? LOL

I've not gotten lost in my house yet, but sometimes I do find myself standing in a particular room wondering what in the hell I came to the room for in the first place.

Frakking brainfog.

Two old men were talking:
First old man: I've been thinking about the hereafter a lot lately.
Second old man: Are you afraid that you're going to die?
First old man: No! Every time I walk into a room, I ask myself, "Now, what am I here after?"

Story of my life lately!

You know you have brain fog when you can't find your remote in the bedroom and it was there on your bedspread all the time. What makes it worse is that you can't even change the channels on the TV without the remote. All the channels are now just snow.
