    Rob,

    Thank you for starting this thread...so funny

    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....


    not cool when the store is 25 miles away from my house...

    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.
    As long as this body works, I am going to enjoy life to the fullest for each second of every moment that I can.

    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)

    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!
