When I'm in a fibro fog (and other times too) my husband understands me! It's quite amazing as I ask him to make me a cup of sugar or take the bog out for a walk. The washing machine is the dishwasher and the fridge is the oven, so many things are thingys and they are over there somewhere next to the other thingy! The kettle is the thingy that boils water and the radiators are things that get hot!
He doesn't always get it right as he picks up the wrong thingy and I get more foggy and just a wee bit irritated that he can't see what I want. Bless him though as he does try and I wouldn't be without him.
Do you have odd names and thingys on the thingy?
