This made me laugh at myself!!

Just thought I would share this ..

.I was replying to someone's question just a moment ago,and I have small blocks where my words get stuck whether I am talking or writing and I have to think of what word I need ( I understand this as brain fog ) well I was busy typing away and should have put " I hope this only lasts a while la la la " instead ,my husband walked in and started talking about things in the freezer for dinner......I was still trying to type as I was on a roll and I put " I hope this only lasts for a sausage as we have no chicken and you soon feel better " ....then asked him if I could just finish my reply. I read it back and burst out laughing when I saw what I had written.

I just wanted to share this as it did make me chuckle.....

Hehehe! I do this a lot!

My daughter was telling me about a particularly stupid work colleague, and I meant to say "What a plonker!".

What I actually said was "What a plastic bag!" 'cos I was off to the shop and was looking for a carrier to take with me.

Luv, Moffy


Ha ha at least we get to laugh at times...I even go all goble de gook and completly muddle my words up and my husband goes "wwwwaaaatt ? " and hard as I try I cannot unmuddle them lol x x

rainbowdancer thank you for cheering me up! when i read your blog I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself lol !!!!


I find that when I mix up my words I always try and make a joke of it (so that I maybe don't sound toooooo stupid) and then my daughter and I always end up in fits of giggles!!!! In this way I can use my "fibro-fog" to cheer myself up a bit :) At least we can learn to laugh at ourselves and also in the process make others laugh with us -- perhaps we should invent our own special "fibro-language"!!! Keep smiling :)


Rainblow dancer, you said it right for us "muddled words are us", now are you going to cook your words or the chicken or sausages?, that's the question lol, and I also invariably at least every few days get all my words mixed up and only realize it when I look at whoever I was talking to, because their expression says it all, then I just recap in a few words, because I usually forget what the heck I was trying to say in the first place, what goes on in our minds, I'd love to know, God love us all xxx
