    Default I'm Frustrated and Angry.........

    at myself.

    An outside party emailed me something at work and apparently I deleted the email and it's attachment without printing them, as I normally do. This, after telling my boss that I didn't receive them (me pulling hair out in frustration). When the outside party confirmed that their email records showed the time of transmission to me, I was so angry at myself for deleting the doc without taking action as I normally would (head held down on shame).

    I feel like I've lost all credibility. I don't normally make mistakes (that my boss knows about), but this darn brain fog is making it harder and harder to get things done accurately. As a result of this, I didn't apply for a promotion that I am more than qualified for. I just don't have the confidence any more.

    We've been friends for some time now, so I think I'm qualified when I say that you are an incredibly intelligent, professional, tough, and attractive lady.

    Brainfog doesn't change any of that.

    You've not lost any credibility to me.

    Fog happens.

    One incident does not a mountain of non-credibility make. S**t happens. Believe me I know.

    We all make mistakes and the brain fog definitely is frustrating. I would bet that your boss has made mistakes before too so hold your head high and put in for that promotion.

    Things will get better.

    I wish I was close enough to hug you. It was a mistake. One mistake is nothing to freak out over. Having said that, I understand how it feels when you feel the person that you were slipping away at work. I went through that for almost a year before I had an incident at work that ended up in my having to go on disability.

    I want to second everything that Rob said. I know you personally, and I know that you are one impressive lady.
    Hang in there, my friend.
    Hugs,
