Brain fog is something I experience daily, probably hourly, if not more. I’m much worse of an evening, especially after I’ve taken my nighttime meds. A combination of pain, fatigue, medication etc means that I have cognitive impairment that means I often talk a lot of nonsensical bullshit. I am very lucky that my boyfriend can often decipher what I’m trying to say or finish my sentences for me.

With all that in mind, I thought I’d share some foggy brain rubbish I’ve spouted out lately.

Me: Austria and Belgia. No, that’s not right, is it?
Bf: No
Me: Bel-jamier. Is that it?
Bf: No. Belguim
Me: Oh, that makes more sense. I prefer Bel-jamier.

Me: Is that an ox or a buffoon?
Bf: A buffalo?
Me: That’s what I meant

Me: I’ve had my Boost and McDonalds

Me: Them

I’m a constant delight to be around, as long as you can understand the bizarre shit I chat.

    I'm constantly using the wrong words due to my brain fog, today I said head instead of house. I can tell when my fibromyalgia is affecting me more based on how much I mess up what I'm saying, it's been pretty bad this week but that could be the lack of sleep from this wisdom tooth coming through.

    Love this! I used to think I was the only one that did this until I got ill and learnt about brain fog being a thing, so posts like this make me feel relieved that it's not just me! Thank you!

    Glad to read someone saying the stuff I say lol – I mis-read things too and always think I see swear words, the same with mis-hearing (what does that say about me??)
