Still 'Foggy@ and got big meeting to attend HELP !!!!

My hopes of a fog free day today have been greatly let down i'm afraid. Got a big meeting at work and don't want to look like a fool or worse........... Might have to try and get someone else to do it if I can. This really makes me feel worried about how long I can continue to work. I'm a nurse and have lots of responsibility. I've heard that FM does get worse is that true or is it how you manage the symptoms?

im still on early days yet ,so im not the best person to ask ,but i would say i have some days even weeks where im not too bad with the fog ,i find worrying that you cant get rid of the fog makes it worse ,so i know its not easy but try and not think about it so much ,easier said than done i know :)


Thanks for that. It really helps knowing that there are others are experiencing the same thing. I'm bit better today. Take care.


Hi hun,your job in itself must be stressful,and I find when I`m stressed or really have to pay attention my fog gets worse.

One thing I`m doing more is crosswords and word puzzles,as even before fibro I thought it was a case of use it or lose it(your brain that is).

But I haven`t read anywhere that it gets worse over time.As we get older we naturaly become more forgetful.

But this brain fog and fatigue is a nightmare.

Hope you have a good day,and try not to worry that makes all syptoms worse.

Took your advise and a chill pill........ Meeting went well and I'm getting through the day bit by bit.



Glad it`s gone well for you martina.I really take my hat of to you that 1 you are still managing to work,And 2 the proffession you are in.

Treat yourself to something nice this evening,and continue to chill.
