Hi everyone,

There is always alot of discussion here about Brain Fog, and the things we do while in it. Fog can be frustrating, embarassing, and it can also sometimes be funny. So, in the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy's "You Know You're a Redneck When..." routine, I decided to start this thread to talk about the funny things we do while we are in the fog. So, to get it started-

You Know You Have Brain Fog When...


-When you search the house end to end looking for your favorite pair of shoes, only to discover that you're already wearing them.

-When you open the freezer door and find a bottle of Windex. (or when you open the cleaning cabinet door and find a pint of not-so-frozen ice cream)

-When you pour yourself a bowl of cereal in the morning, only to discover that it's actually Little Friskies Hairball Formula dry cat food.

And lastly-

You know you have Brain Fog when you suddenly discover that the shirt you are wearing is inside out, and you are wearing you boxers on the outside. (I actually did this, couldn't figure out for the life of me why everyone was staring at me)

So, lets hear about some of your funniest fog moments!

You know you have brain fog when you go to Panera Bread and ask the counter attendant to repeat the list of sides 3 times, still can't remember it, and finally just say "The first one". :wacko:

Oh Rob,

You made me laugh, it is a good idea, we are going to get alot of laughs out of this.
Here I go.
You know you have brain fog when:
you serve spaghetti and meatballs, but you forget the meatballs ( they are still ground meat in the freezer).
You know you have brain fog when:
you put hairspray under your arms, instead of deodorant.
You know you have brain fog when:
you throw the meat in the garbage and the styrofoam tray in the pot.
You know you have brain fog when:pour coffee on the plate or juice in the ashtray.
And You were eating your cats food, I have "served" my cats cereal.
I am sure that I have many more, but brain fog prevents me from remembering.

Each of you who have posted your brain fog moment..............I can totally visualize every incident! I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you, because I've done silly similar things. Like mountain dreamer, I'll post when (if) I can recall anything in particular, but had to thank you for making me laugh today.

Outstanding Rob! I relate to all of these and am glad you posted this as we can all use a good laugh :laugh: You know you have a brain fog when you take your dogs out and can't remember if they peed or not, so you stay out longer. By the time you come back in you had a 20 minute walk and you really hope your dogs peed because for the life of you you just can't remember. :tongue2:

Rob,

Thank you for starting this thread...so funny :laugh:

You know you have brain fog when you:
-make a list to go grocery shopping (so you don't forget what you need)
-get the store and forget the list in your car (go back to the car)
-loose the list, which was in your hand 5 seconds ago (search frantically on the floor around you, in the shopping cart, in your purse) other shoopers are amused by this for sure
-find the list IN YOUR PURSE! (have no idea how in got in there)
-and finally hand the list to the cashier instead of your credit card

Don't you just love brain fog, funny and frustrating at the same time!

Oh my best one yet was the day I went to store thinking I was buying all the items on my grocery list when actually I bought all items I don't even use and none were on the list and had to go back to the store....

You know you have brainfog when you attempt to remove the glasses you already took off your face.

You know you have brainfog when you frantically search your purse for your phone that you already took out and put on the counter.

You know you have brainfog when you repeat the second thing again 20 minutes later and still don't see the phone sitting in front of you.

You know you have brainfog when you need to put your parent's birthdays in your phone alarms to remember them.

You know you have brainfog when you go to reset the alarm and you reset the clock. (Thank God that one worked out ok that day)

You know you have brainfog when you drive right past the exit to your house and wonder where you were going on your daily commute.

:laugh: A similar thing happened to me. I washed my hair, then after I rinsed it, I washed it again because I forgot that I already did it.

You know you have brain fog when you are driving what you know is a familiar route, but have no idea where you planned to go, so you just keep driving anyway.

...when you are on the way to work and start to panic because you didn't grab your ID from the kitchen counter before you left. Then, as you get to work, you look down, and your ID is around your neck, as it has been the entire time you were stressing out. (Yep, this one is how my morning started!)

Years ago, my mom was talking on the phone with a friend and they were discussing cordless phones. She went to look at her cordless phone and discovered that it was not in it's base. She walked all over the house looking for the cordless phone, all the while talking to her friend, saying I can't understand where the phone is!!! Of course, the friend finally asked her, What are you talking to ME on???

The cordless phone. Duh. LOL (now THAT'S BAD) :laugh:

You know you have brain fog when:

I just had that happen the other night. I washed my hair, put conditioner in washed the conditioner out, and thought ok, why did I condition my hair first. So I washed and conditioned again, then realized I did wash my hair the first time. Wow I though I was alone on this one. My husband says I am hours and hours of entertainment! It helps lighten the mood when he says that. I am pretty sure I am hours of entertainment at times. I also put my glasses on my head, and forget that they are there for hours. Then look for my glasses and my husband tells me uh honey they are on your head. oops!! I have also had issues driving! Couldn't decide what to do or where to turn. I freaked out and had my hubby drive. So glad to know I am not ALONE!!!

Well at least we have some funny stories to tell!

Take Care Everyone!

Thanks for starting this thread Rob!:)

you know you have brain fog when you wake up and remember that you have an appointment with the doctor after work and you tell others that you have an appointment after work several times during that day and you are excited about that appointment and then you go home and make dinner and forget all about the appointment until the receptionist calls you an hour and a half after your appointment was scheduled. :embarrassed: thankfully they allowed me to come in right then. :cute:

I took my cordless home phone in the car with me and could not understand why people kept on saying they rang home and could not get me. i was at the doctors surgery and another patient told me i had my dress inside out. i put the toilet paper in the freezer, and i hopped into a car that looked like ours but i had forgot we were in my brother inlaws car that day the driver was extremely surprised and i was really embarrrassed. my husband went for a brain scan and the receptionist asked him his name and he just went blank she told my husband she now knows why he was having brain scan needless to say he was embarrassed. i went looking for my reading glasses and tore the house apart only to be told by my daughter they were on my head. brainfog it can do funny things to you. bye for now kim l

You know you have brain fog when you go into your boss's office to talk to him about something, but by the time you get there you've forgotten why you wanted to talk to him!

You know you have brain fog when you're 20 minutes late to class because you forgot when class started.....and you're the professor! :)

It is bad enough when you forget what you were saying, but to forget what you were thinking just sitting there...and then you wonder was I even thinking at all. Then your mind feels totally empty headed, like a dark room with no light peering in, there is nothing in there at all, except the last thought...Now, what was I thinking. That makes me paranoid.


Who am I.

Love,
Oh no.

You know my brain fog, I was getting showered and dressed for a 2:55PM matinee....pull up at the theater and ask my husband, did you reset your car clock cause it says 3 :44. He asked, Did we fall back already? I said no, but your clock is an hour fast. He looked at his cell..no it isn't...

Well something isn't right...I got paranoid...

Funny while getting dressed I was getting ready for a 3:55PM show but all the while the other part of me, I suspect the normal side knew it was a 2:55PM showing..weird. I am weird. I was living in two dimensions that day...

Who am I.

Love,
Oh no.

"You know you have a brain fog when you come home from work put a pot of chili on the burner to cook sit down read you e-mail chat on FB then go check on the chili to realize you put it on the wrong burner and it's colder than snow"

B- Did I mention the time I came home, filled the electric kettle with water for a nice cup of tea, sat back down on the couch and 20 or so mins later smelt plastic burning??? After running into a fume & smoke filled kitchen, I discovered that I had turned the electric stove on and set the kettle on that instead of it's base. :shocked: It took an hour or two to air the room out, & I still won't use that burner for fear of toxic fumes, but now I always remember to check the burners! :)

HAHA these are too funny but darn do we sure run risks. As long as we don't say you know you have a brain fog when you are homeless because you left the burner on :tongue2: Worst thing I did to myself on a fog was slice my finger requiring 6-7 stitches and burn my hand all in the same day while trying to fix myself a snack in the kitchen...the snack didn't end up being worth all the trouble it was only toast :laugh:

Brain fog is when you forget the answer to your secret question for an online account. The secret question being "Who is your favorite male actor?"

How on earth could I possibly forget it's Richard Gere, or maybe it's John Travolta.....or....OMG how could I forget this???? I know he's tall (or not-it's hard to tell on the big screen) dark and handsome....Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman....yep, I tried them all. Now I'm locked out :(

Guys, you have made my night. This is soooooo funny. I'm literally laughing out loud while writing this. It's great that we can see the funny side of things. Well, I didn't realize I suffered from brain fog until reading this thread. I do silly things like that everyday, I just thought it was because i'm tired, or not concentrating with what i'm doing...but it turns out, I have brain fog too. A few days back, after boiling the kettle, to make my self a cuppa, instead of pouring in the hot water, I put the boiling kettle in the fridge, and placed the carton of milk on the burner. Luckily the burner was switched off, as the kettle had already boiled. I'd only realized what I had done, after I sat down, and wondered where the hell my cuppa was.:laugh: Sounds funny now, but at the time I thought I may have been losing my mind.

You know you have brain fog when;

You sneak some of your husbands Reeses chocolate, it somehow ends up sliding down behind you on the sofa melting along the way finally ending up under your butt. You unknowingly get up to get a drink when your husband comes up behind you and says "Oh noooo what happened! What did you get all over yourself? Oh it's chocolate." followed by his hysterical laughter.

Chocolate everywhere, sofa, blouse, pants.

That was a painful snack. I am sorry to hear that it wasn't something more scrumtious like s'mores or ice cream sundae for all those troubles! :)

Today I put the oven on to reheat my homemade pizza & forgot that I never put the pizza in. 20 mins later, I was thinking - oh good it's done - and found my cold pizza still sitting on top of the stove waiting to be warmed. :embarrassed: Better then my last go with the stove though.

You know you have brain fog when book your flight, reserve your rental car and when the day comes you make your journey to the destination only to learn that they weren't expecting you because you didn't confirm the meeting.

You know you have brain fog when you spend 15 minutes looking for you shoes ..then realize you are wearing them.

when you go outside to bring the trash out to the bin, stop and sort some things in the garage, and then decide you had better go inside and make dinner. You walk in the house and hear a noise like someone crinkling paper... what is going on?? OH! You were already making dinner and that is the ground beef sizzling on the stove!!
This crap is scary. I actually teared up thinking about the ramifications of this.... what if I had decided to keep sorting the garage??? :shocked:

If I only had a brain!!!

Heres one for ya...I don't think this is brain fog, but the confusion is quite similar. When I read "1,2,3,...last page" on the title at Lauri's lounge, I assumed it meant that we are on our last page, as the thread was getting too long. But now that I have thought about it, i've realized that it means more than 3 pages long, and to go to the last page. lol
Funny but scary. I haven't been able to concentrate as normal lately, this morning I had a doc. appointment, I got into the car, put down my hand brake, put the car in reverse, and I wondered why the car wasn't moving. Then I noticed the silence around me, and realized I hadn't started the car. I've also been getting like a sharp lightning pain on the side of my head, followed by a twitch on the palm of my hand, just below my thumb. I've noticed the confusion started around the same time...something i'm going to need to mention to the rheumy on my next visit.

Hahaha, I love reading other peoples fog moments. They're good for laughs, chucks and all that fun stuff.

You know you have brain fog when:
You unpack groceries into the microwave.
You forget which key is for the front door to the apartment building and which is for your unit, then spend twenty minutes wondering why you can't unlock the door.

While I was pondering my other brain fog moments, I got up and wandered away from the computer and completely forgot I was writing this. When I eventually came back and discovered it, I was really baffled as to why my confused moments were written out in a text box. :hypnotized:

You know you have brain fog when...

you walk into the bedroom then back to the kitchen then back to the bedroom trying to remember why you went in the bedroom in the first place...(fyi, it was because I had to pee...and I couldn't remember until I sat back down and my bladder let me know again)

My husband got a huge laugh out of that one.

Also,

You know you have brain fog when you look all over the house for the remote control (and your husband looks) only to find a carton of juice on the couch and no remote...it was in the refridgerator...Great place for a remote control, don't you think?

These are so funny. Great idea Rob!

here's another...just happened yesterday. You know you have brain fog when...

you go to mc donald's just to get a milk shake, come home with hamburger, fries, diet coke, AND actually remember the milkshake. Eat the food and drink the drink, and look for the milkshake that you THOUGHT you put in the freezer, and low and behold it's in the pantry, where the ketchup should have gone, and the ketchup is in the freezer. I didn't get my milkshake...it was chocolate milk, very HOT chocolate milk.

I had to laugh out loud about that one.

here's another too.

...when you go to school KNOWING it's wednesday, walk into your class, wait 30 minutes, and wonder if you missed the note about class being cancelled. Then I looked at my phone, IT'S TUESDAY...No class.

I'm so glad we can all laugh at ourselves and allow others to laugh with us! Much fun. :)

This morning I put some bacon on the stove to cook .. did random chores in the kitchen ... loaded the dishwasher, checked the bacon .. not ready to turn yet .. took out the trash .. checked the bacon .. not ready to turn yet ... got a glass and got something to drink .. checked the bacon .. not ready to turn yet ...

OHHHHHHHH, I forgot to turn on the burner. DUH. It was in the pan at least 15 minutes before I realized I hadn't turned it on yet.

You know you have brainfog when: You are looking for your cell phone and begin to get upset that perhaps it was left at a store or something so you call the provider to get a new phone on insurance and hang up and it is then that you realize that you had the phone in your hand the whole time....hahaha sometimes it feels I am loosing my mind...

Tgal motivated me to resurrect this old thread about our funniest brainfog incidents. There's a bit of comedy gold here, and you may as well just laugh about it. Feel free to share.

I'll get the ball rolling again-

You know you have brainfog when you send a private message to another member, and at the same time you get excited that you yourself have suddenly received a private message from someone else, only to find out that you sent the PM to yourself.

And then, you really know you have brainfog when you start agreeing with this person thinking that this must be some sort of long lost soulmate or something, and you actually send this person a reply.

Sleep deprivation, and methylprednisolone can do some strange things to your head. I actually did respond to myself. Totally nuts, I know, but at least I caught it. But then I forgot that, and the next morning, well...

You know you have brain fog when someone asks you for personal information such as last name or SSN and you have to think a minute to make sure you are remembering yours and not your bosses!

You know you have brain fog when you get up from your desk to bring your boss something and go to his office without and go back to your desk to get it and then forget what it is you are going back and forth for so you go back to your boss and then remember what you forgot.

Make a note to call a friend to wish them a happy Birthday, make the call, later forget you made the call, call again, she says yes you called me once already, make apology but not for the birthday wishes. Wake up the next morning see the note call the friend again because you forgot to call....My friends don't think I'm nuts....they know it!

Good place for an old joke:
An old man says to his friend, "The older I get, the more I think about the hereafter."
The friend says, "Are you worried about dying?"
The old man responds, "No, every time I walk into a room, I have to stop and think, now, what am I here after?"

I find myself doing this more and more often lately!

Needless to say, today I tore my room apart looking. Only this evening I decided to get my suitcase started for the next trip. There was my missing clothes. I unpacked the dirties and left the clean stuff,.!!!!!

You are talking to your brother and sister in law trying to explain about the burner on the stove that isn't working and you can't understand why they look so confused. Again and again you tell them and finally one of them pipes up to say..."I think you mean the stove not the washing machine". Apparently I had been telling them about the burner on my washing machine for the last 15 min. No wonder they were confused!

Well, it may be a major one, but not necessarily a "one-of-a-kind" because I have done that too many times to count!! At the time, I think that I am making it easier on myself to leave some clothing in the suitcase. But, within the next hour, I've forgotten that they are there and I put the suitcase away and then spend the next couple of weeks (or sometimes months) looking for (and giving up as lost) those items of clothing.
Sometimes, I buy replacement clothing, only to open the suitcase, when packing for our next trip, to find everything that I thought I had lost. So, welcome to my world rofl

You know you have brainfog when you pull up to the first window at the drive-thru to pay for your quarter pounder with cheese, and then forget to stop at the second window to pick it up.

And then, you really know you have brainfog when you make it all the way home before you start wondering what the hell happened to your quarter pounder with cheese.

And then, the ultimate brainfog is when you forget about being hungry and even going to Mickey D's in the first place!

Last year I went to the laundry mat, loaded 5 washers in a row, added all the coins in the slots, went down the row and added the soap, put them all on, came back in 25 mins and put 4 loads of clean wet wash in the dryers, didn't load the 5th b/c I saw it wasn't yet washed and forgot it was mine, came back 40 mins later, folded all the clothes and just as I finish the owner sees a load in that forgotten washer and says "Is this yours too?". d'oH! Thankfully that laundrymat is around the corner and not out of my way and I just did that load then!

Had a classic case of brain fog this morning. Leaving for the Drs. Went to lock the back door and could'nt find the keys for the back door. After a frantic search and a call to the other half who had no idea where they were not to be late i left the door unlocked. My daughter was home after all. Back from Drs in need of a drink went to the fridge and yes you've guessed it. There were the keys nice and cold in the fridge. Phoned other half who found it very funny. Told him i'd put them there for safe keeping. So if that was at the start of my day i think i'm in for a very intresting day indeed.

Rob- My mom did the same drive-thru thing at Taco Bell. My dad had to go in and get it.

Here are mine...

continually forced to raise your hand for the question you forgot 3 minutes ago...Then forget again as soon as your called on.

Walk up to the teachers desk to turn in homework, follower her through the hallway to ask questions about that nights homework, and go home only to find out you still have the paper you were supposed to turn in.

Asking a foriegn student where they are from, where they graduated what their age is, etc. A look of concern appears on her face. Then you remember you asked all of these questions while you were still in class....Twice.

I was in the middle of a conversation with the same foreign student, and corrected her pronunciation. She was saying coat instead of quote. I'm wondering why she's trying to put a coat into her essay. Then she says *coat* right, and I look at her funny because I forgot what she was originally asking me. *I mean quote....

Claim up and down you've never seen the movie (despite it being in your collection for only lord knows how long), and realize at the end that you have seen it and it's gone from your least favorite movie to your favorite and back again.

Turing on a pot of boiling water for tea. Forgetting about to later find a cooking pot with hardly any water. Redo the water and boiling, then remind your mom that the tea water is done. Never mind that you'd set the pot of water on for yourself, and get nothing out of it for all the water that's been boiled out again. *Now we let my dad remember about the tea

confuse the size of a turkey as being the size of two chickens (Thought we were having turkey tonight AND on thanksgiving).

Saturday was quite foggy for me. Did too many things that were way out in far east fogland.

First (and this is quite stupid and scary really) - I washed my hands after putting hair product in my hair(the sink has a clog and drains very slowly) and then I dried them and picked up the hair dryer and started to dry my hair. Well, I knocked something into the sink and without thinking stuck my right hand right into the sink with the water still draining to retrieve what fell while I was holding the hair dryer in my left hand. Dumb dumb dumb!

After I finally calmed down from drying my hair I was about to go out of the house to go a swing dance and as I am putting my coat on I realize I never ate dinner. Kind of a big deal being that I am a diet controlled diabetic. Off came the coat and I instantly made dinner (thank goodness for leftovers!)

When I was leaving I couldn't remember if I was supposed to go up Rte 111 to Stonybrook or up Rte 112 to Smithtown. (I've been to this place too many times not to know). I couldn't figure it out and kept thinking it's in Smithtown so I have to go up Rte 112. I should mention the 2 exits for these roads are about 10 miles apart and rte 112 is farther from me. Well off I went to 112 and just before I get to that exit I realize I am supposed to be in Smithtown but Smithtown is off rte 111. D'Oh! Back round the highway cloverleaf I went.

Finally made it dancing. Remembered my way home. Almost forgot my dance shoes at the dance when I left but a friend saw me do that and reminded me. Woke up Sunday and was out of the foglands again. For a while at least...

OK.. I have become an idiot! I wasn't an idiot before. I promise! I worked with lawyers every day legal documents and there was a period of time that I took a break from that and went to get my certifications from Microsoft so I could install networks and do computer support. I am simply telling you this to reinforce the "I wasn't an idiot" thing.

For several months my dryer has not been working properly. Being out of work I couldn't afford to have it looked at (thank goodness! More on this later) but I had tried everything to fix it. It would take about 6 hours to actually dry a load of clothes. I cleaned out the dryer vent. I even borrowed a machine from my neighbor to clean it out better. I did this again yesterday thinking MAYBE this time it would help. Nope. Nothing. Not only was this a hassle but it was costing me a TON of money on my utility bill!

Fast forward to today. I have clothes in the dryer and, of course, they are not dry. FINALLY I decide to look behind the machine and see if there is anything around the vent hose. It was COVERED in junk. I felt so smug as I began moving the machine (which I am sure I will pay for later tonight or tomorrow) in order to get the trash out. As it begins to move I notice that the hose isn't moving. It is laying on the ground. It is unhooked! Well THAT would explain all the hair and crap I kept having to clean out of the dryer! I should have figured this out months and months ago! I feel almost as dumb (but not quite) as dumb as I did when I figured out that I can change the titles of my own threads on here. LOL

Lovin' getting to know the new me (NOT)

Well, I would NOT call you an idiot, by any means. I mean, how many of us would consider checking the hose connection if the dryer were not working well. I think that I would have done exactly what you did. What's worse is that I DID. Only, in my stupidity, I balled and complained to my hubby about the dryer not working and the fact that I've done everything that I can to fix it, but it still doesn't work; and how we can't afford to continue to pay for a dryer that runs for 3-4 hours; for that money, we may as well buy a new dryer. So,,he buys me a new dryer. When the new dryer was delivered, the guys begin to pull the old one out and what do they find???? Yes, the hose is not connected..there is a ton of lint and cat hairs...they clean it out, hook the hose up and tell me that the dryer works just fine!!!!!
My husband, understandably, is quite irritated saying that he asked me if I checked the hose and I said I did ("did I say that? when? Did I check the hose?). At any rate, his decision is to keep the new dryer anyway..but he is PISSED about having to give away a perfectly good dryer!
So, sweetie, don't feel alone and pat yourself on the back for at least figuring it out before an unnecessary purchase was made!!! Now I AM THE ONE WHO IS AN IDIOT!!

Peace and Blessings

I know we all feel like one at some point or another, but it is not true. I can't remember half the stuff I used to and my mind doesn't wrap around things the way it used to, but I'm still me somewhere in there.

I just now, dicovered something. I am cooking a big pot of chili, nice on a cold day.
I am stirring it and tasting it, it doesn't look right and it doesen't taste right.
So I put in more spices, still, something is not right.
I am sitting here on the pc, BINGO I've got it, NO BEANS.
It is 9.00 pm and I have to run to the store to buy kidney beans. In the cold freezing rain. UGH.

Hey my friend,
Just so you know, I have lived in Houston and Dallas for over 20 years and have always put beans in my chili.
The funny part is, that I am actually from Germany, I came to the USA when I was 25.

my cousin looked all around, everywhere but at me, and eventually informed me that we had watched it the night before.

He thought I was cleaning out the closets.

you know when you have brainfog, when you write a note to yourself and put it next to an item you get everyday, then a few days later realize, you never went to get it. (My friend brought up a picture of the books in his room. Then I remembered that two days ago, I wrote a note to find one of the books I've been itching to read and attached it to the milk carton. Haven't been to get a glass of milk, therefore bypassing the message I thought I put in a great place. oops.)

You are looking at your cell phone and don't recognize a phone number so you call it to see who it is. Right about the same time your home phone begins to ring so you pick it up to check the caller ID on it (while continuing to call the number on the cell phone). When the caller ID comes on it takes you a moment to figure out that it is YOUR CELL PHONE that is calling YOUR HOME PHONE! As you hang up you are very thankful you are alone and no one else in the house has to know what you did!

You know you have brain fog when you finally make it to your parent's home and rush in the door to relieve your bladder and enter the code to turn off the alarm XYA# and it doesn't turn off so you try that code again. No luck. You run upstairs thinking you just need to use the other keypad that somethings wrong and re-enter the same code XYA# and time is up. The alarm is blaring, your heart is pumping, and all you want to do is pee which you almost do right in the foyer when the alarm goes off. The house phone won't work so you go outside to use the cell phone and call your stepmom only to find out that the code is XYA-Off and Off is the number 2 button not the #. *smacks face*

Last night, I placed the strip of meds in my purse, the bottle in the pantry and went to bed. I got half-way to work this morning and realized that *dummy me* forgot to put the Adderall in the strip of weekly meds.

I just did that. I was thinking "what's the fog we get called again?" *face palm*

Very Dangerous (Next time, I'm just letting mom make the tea):
you know you have brain fog when You get so into a conversation you forget your tea water is boiling until it can only make a single cup, leave the tea to sit for 20 minutes (forogt to take it out after 5), and then leave the stove on with the pot on top until your dad calls out "who burned the pot!" and everyone is calling back 'not me'. Of course you respond that all you did was make tea. Go check the stove to find that it's been on for about 25-30 minutes with no water in it.

The only "good" part about this post is that I'm not the only one who forgets to do this. My mom did it already, and I think it was the same pot lol.

You know you have brainfog when you go to dump a load of laundry into the washing machine, and you end up dumping it into the toilet instead. (in my bathroom the washer is right next to the toilet)

Then you really know that you have brainfog when you forget to lift the lid! I actually did this this morning, and brainfog saved my laundry from going in the toilet! Kinda weird, but definitely funny!

That would have been terrible! And yet, I can't stop laughing. Thank goodness I have to walk a few extra feet to the toilet!

You know you have brainfog when you have to figure out ways to remind yourself about your meds. I keep forgetting to take my synthroid before I eat breakfast. Throws my whole day off

LOL at the new ones! I too am thankful that my washer is not in the same room as the toilet! Jmail.. I LOVE to edit now! I know where you are coming from.

You know you have brain fog when you go put the dirty clothes in the washer after moving the wet ones to the dryer and you jack with the dryer for 10 minutes because you can't remember how to turn it on. this is not a new one, I have had it for 4 years! I even pulled a couple of the nobs off while figuring this out! LOL

I hate that. My foot usually finds it so much faster than my eyes do. Problem is, that I usually jump up to get it, causing an even bigger mess than if I'd simply knocked it over. Then I have to fight off the dogs to clean it up.

You know you have brainfog when...

1.WHen you have to start using a "pill minder" to keep your pills straight (AM, PM)

2. When When you wake up late (because you didn't sleep well) so you take your meds late.) When you go to take the night time pills your morning pills are still there! You look through the pill minder and NO morning pills are missing! You see night time pills gone for Friday but you don't remember if you filled it Friday or if you are used Friday night's pills that morning!!!

My whole life I've been called scatterbrained, absentminded and just plain lazy... but it's all brainfrog!

How about when you are just getting ready to leave to drive to the store and you decide you want a water bottle. You grab one, leave your (dorm) room to get to your car, get halfway there, and realize that you don't have your car keys. Once back in your room you find your keys- in the fridge.

I have done this multiple times.

Edit: how about not even catching the "brainfrog" at the beginning?

Time is a funny thing. I thought that I had probably started this thread maybe 6 months, or even a year ago. I see people responding to it all the time. It seems like I had the idea for it just yesterday. Then I saw that it was actually September of 2009 that I thought this one up.

So many things have changed since then. Some have weathered the storm. Some have faced their darkest fears and have survived. Others, have been forced to live with unspeakable loss.

This thread is a funny way to mark time I guess. But, I'm glad it's brought some good laughs, and some much needed comic relief for those who need it the most.

you know you have brain fog when...

- the receptionist at the doctors asks you for your name... and all you can do is stare at her blankly.
(she was so good, she asked me what time my appointment was instead and then asked me my last name, I could give her both and she looked up the records that way lol)

- your dog breaks his leg... the vet receptionist asks 'so what is your whippets name?'... all you can do is say '...uuuuum'.
(she vet nurse checked his tag... another fantastic employee!)

- you get a few rodents out of the freezer to feed your reptiles, pop them in hot water and walk off to get out the tongs... come back and end up feeding them all to your dog :/
(a very expensive mistake :( and I am slightly disturbed that I fed rats to my dog. He is on pain meds for his broken leg at the moment so I have been feeding him treats stuffed with meds... so it seemed so natural standing in the kitchen feeding my dog... rats... I had somehow smooshed together the action of feeding my dog meds and tong feeding my pythons and dragons their meals)

- you stand in the kitchen for ten minutes, walking back and forth, wondering why you have the dog meds in one hand and left overs of last nights roast with mayo balanced on top in the other...
...was I giving the dog his meds? Was I making myself a sandwich? Theres no sandwich in the kitchen... maybe I was going to make a sandwich? Did I give the dog his meds? How many tablets were left last time I gave him his meds? I dont even know... ok so he broke his leg... saturday... that waaaas... wait on what day is today? Is it tuesday? No Im working tuesday, it must be monday... let me see thats *1,2,THREE!* days ago... and how much is he meant to take each day... 1/2 a tablet morning and night it says here... so if there was six tablets all up..........
LOL

You know you have brainfog when you drop your laundry off on Sunday and tell them to wash, dry and fold everything only to realize when you pick it up on Monday that nicely folded on top of that clean pile of everything are the 3 dresses you were supposed to bring to the dry cleaners.

you know you have brain fog when you can't quite figure out why you don't want to go out and spend extra money on a dinner with friends right now but for some reason you have a feeling that you shouldn't and don't cancel and then on the morning of the dinner you realize that it's also the day of the automatic draft from your account that's been set up for a long time and you now have a lot less money then you previously thought.

You know you have Brain Fog when the following conversation occurs

person 1 - "Mike is coming on Friday"
you (person 2) repeating out loud "Mike on Monday, Monday Mike"
person 3 "are you saying it out loud on purpose?"
you - "yes, to memorize it otherwise I'll mess it up"
person 1 - "You already messed it up. He's coming on Friday, not Monday"

just shaking my head and laughing...

You know you have brain fog when your nurse says you called and talked to another nurse about a med side effect and you say "no, I didn't call" and she thinks you're lying. The harder you try to remember the more confused you get until something she says rings a bell and some of the memories start to come back.

1) you answer to your mom's name when your grandmother is calling you
2) your 82 year old grandmother needs to remind you that you are the grandaughter (she usually calls me her daughter or niece)
3) your grandmother remembers you are turning 20, not that you are 16 or 18,


7:13am-- when you try to put your toaster pastry box in the medicine cabnet instead of the freezer. (I'm so happy I noticed before I left it there)

Okay, this is a good one.

For those of you that have never been to Canada, in British Columbia we have to pre-pay for gas before pumping it. A little while ago, late for a doctor's appointment and low on gas, I pull into the station. Walk into the store, pay for a tank of gas, then get back in my car and drive away. I didn't realize what I'd done until I came out from the doctor's get in my car and realize I'm on fumes. Lucky there was another gas station very close to the doctor's office. One day maybe I'll tell my husband what I did--if I can remember it!
