    Default My brain is fried.

    I hate this feeling, I can't think straight! I read things and do not know what the heck is it that I'm reading, my kids tell me something and I do not remember it. this is a scary feeling, AYE, I can't even put my thoughts into words, Im writing like a third grader.

    I feel your pain. You feel like your thoughts aren't connecting to your mouth. Brain fog continues to get the best of me.

    That is the reason, that alot of times, I don't answer long posts here, because I read them over and over and still don't understand them.
    It is very frustrating.
    When I was at my rheumy wednesday, I wanted to ask him, why my platelet count is always low. Well, I couldn't remember the word " platelet", so I asked him, " why is my blood clotting count down?" He looked at me kind of funny.
    In a way I was glad that it happend in his presence, because he always dismisses brain fog.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    It happens to me too, and it happens far too often. Brainfog is damn frustrating.

    I know how you feel.

    Its so frustrating. Im with you Debbie, I can't keep up with the long post either. I read and re-read them and can't comprehend them sometimes.
    Any advice on how to minimize this feeling at least?

    Sorry, I have no advice. I have learned to laugh about it, sometimes we do some funny stuff, because of the brain fog.

    I am the same way about the long posts. I have basically had to give up reading (which I LOVE) because I read over and over the same thing and it doesn't sink in. When it finally does and I get to the next chapter I realize that I have figured out that I don't remember half of what I have read.

    People here have to remember that the ones answering here are sick just like the ones asking the questions.

    You are so right Mari, I would love to answer everyone, but sometines it is just impossible.
    What the heck, we all do our best, but sometimes the fog wins.
