I need a little rant!

Hi all, as you can see, I'm in the wide awake club AGAIN! But that's not what I want to rant about. It's 'The Fog', now usually I make light of my fog, I haven't come across anything major Id forgotten - until now. My Mum had a check up today after having a heart attack a month ago. Her appt was at 2p.m & I forgot to ring her to see how it went. I only remembered when I got a txt from her to say the docs were not too happy with her heart rates so they want to fit a pacemaker TOMORROW!! My Dad has had 2 pacemakers now & her still hikes do i know this will be the best option but I'm worried as to why she's having it done so quickly! & this is why I'm frustrated, because this crappy condition has made me forget something so important as to check on my Mum. Anyway, rant over. Hopefully nobody reads this until morning because I hope you are all having a good night's sleep πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—x

  • I'm the same I've been awake at night for months in so much pain and have very little sleep your not alone.

  • Sorry, I am still awake too!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Rant away......

  • So sorry your Mom is going through this.

    Fibro fog is one of the worst symptoms I find. It can be so debilitating. The info goes in but then it's lost sometimes within minutes of receiving it.

    Don't Be to hard on yourself it's not your fault.

    Hope all goes well for your Mom.

    Take care.

  • Hi kmc-cudsleepforaweek

    I really am so genuinely sorry to read about both of your parents having pacemakers, and your mums is being fitted quite quickly? Please do not beat yourself up over forgetting to ring your mum. It was a genuine mistake due to Fibro fog. I want to sincerely wish you (and your parents) all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for all of you

  • So sorry to hear your mum is going through it ,hopefully she will be tons better once she has had her pacemaker fitted. Its a nightmare fibro fog. I've become a serial list maker ,it drives me up the wall, some of the things I write down goes beyond belief ,even laughable sometimes but yes also anger when i forget something I really shouldn't .I would like for you not to beat yourself up but I know I beat myself up on a regular basis .I hope you have now got to sleep.I'm not going to say how long I slept last night as I might jinx myself and its been a while since I did so well .Big hug xxx

  • Sorry to read about your mum. Lists are the only way I can manage. Hope all goes well for your mum and dad. Be kind to yourself x

  • I hope your Mum is feeling better very soon.

    Pleases be kind to yourself over the fibro fog. It is one of the most misunderstood symptoms of fibro I think.

    I often forget things, and I know it looks like I don't care. I do try and write important things down now, but sometimes even the list is forgotten. xx

  • Fibro fig is the worst ! If I don't write it in my phone calender I know I will forget. Friends laugh at me but I would be lost without my phone and my various reminders and alarms. I even have an alarm to remind me to collect my son from every school as I did loose track of the time and forgot one day ! As I'm off work sometimes I have a nap too if been awake all night and would hate to not wake up in time. I'm the queen of lists and notes as find its the only way I can function with the brain fog so don't feel guilty I'm sure we can all relate.

    Hope your Mum and Dad are on the mend.

  • Please don't beat yourself up. You have more than enough to deal with! So cut yourself some slack?

    The pacemaker should make your mom feel so much better. And you can talk to her doc and find out why the speed.

    Hoping all is well for your mom and for you. Take care

  • Hi again, thankyou all for your supportive replies πŸ’• My Mum has had the procedure & all went well - phew! I think it's time for some sleep 😨

    I hope all of you are as well as can be today πŸ€— oh and just found out that Northern Ireland has now declaredFibro as a Long Term Disability! Won't be long now.........

    Big hugs & thanks again πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—xx
