Thought this story might make you laugh, something we all need a lot more of when living with this illness!
As my illness has progressed I have had many brain fog moments that have been pretty funny, if not necessarily at the time! - emptying the hot water bottle into the bin, and trying desperately to open my front door for about ten minutes with my car key being two of them!
However, my funniest moment was a few years ago when I decided I would have a baked potato for supper as I was too tired to think of anything more extravagant or energy consuming. So I turned on the oven prepared the potato etc. and retired to my sofa to watch some telly whilst I waited the hour for it to cook.
An hour later I got up to go and take it out of the oven only to realise that I had been sitting with the ready pricked potato on my lap in the living room for the whole of that hour!! and the oven was nice and hot but completely empty!
Needless to say it was a real pain at the time but I had to laugh and still do when I think about it, if anyone could have seen me sat there with a potato neatly placed on my lap for a whole hour, god knows what they would have thought!
Any good brain fog moments you can share to give us a giggle? xx
