I,ve done it after 20 years

Aha at last my OH understands my fibro fog.... He just phoned... When I finish work... What was it I had to get ... I can remember the shop just not the item ... Welcome to my world I said and had a good gloat before telling him he was bringing home teaspoons.... :D. Some may argue that living with me has driven him to this state ...but it really felt good to be the one remembering for a change.....

Lol sounds like my oh. Bless him though, he doesn't laugh as much as someone else would. I think he feels my frustration - either that or he knows better haha

My OH woke up in the middle of the night a few weeks ago and started groaning 'Everything hurts' was his response when I'd asked what was wrong.........I must admit that I didn't have an ounce of sympathy for him, I simply laughted heartily and said 'Welcome to my world!' Thankfully from his little episode he actually did get a tiny bit of comprehension of everything hurting and having the inability to make it stop. Thankfully his 'weary corpse' has made a full recovery, but he hasn't forgotten those few hours. ;-)
