50 Shades of Brain Fog, Part One

Hello Spoonies!

Because I have Lyme, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, allergies, and chemical sensitivities, brain fog is one of my worst symptoms. Really awful. Er, what was I talking about?

Oh yes, brain fog.  I think I definitely have more than “fifty shades.” Anyway, here are some examples of my brain fog …

Brain Fog Shade 1 – The Endless Meds Cycle

Woman with brain fog cannot remember if she took her pills

Brain Fog Shade 2 – Lost in Plain Sight

Woman with brain fog thinks she lost her exercise ball but she is sitting on it

Brain Fog Shade 3 – Understanding Directions

Woman asks directions and her brain explodes with brain fog

Do you have any brain-foggy moments you want to share? Maybe I can make a cartoon from them (no guarantees as I am too brain-fogged.)  😜

Until next time, I wish everyone many low-symptom, low-fog days.

Hi! I'm Vicki. My blog is called "Miss Diagnoses" because I have too many diagnoses and because my Lyme disease was misdiagnosed for many years. In addition to being a professional patient, I'm a compulsive reader and doodler. Sadly, my writing and drawing are limited by repetitive strain injury and neuropathy; I use assistive technology, but I can't post as often as I'd like. I'm also an allergic, chemically sensitive shopaholic, always on the hunt for less toxic beauty products. You can find me on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.

  1. In truth, they all apply to me, but I think picture #2 applies the most. I tend to loose things and then be unable to find them again. And they never turn up, despite people saying they’ll turn up. I can’t track what all I’ve lost!

    For me, another one would be writing something down and then looking at it later not understanding what I’ve written down.

    This was so funny! Thank you for this!

  2. Tecognise faces but do not remember who they are or where I know them from. Or forget where I put something safely away. Did I let the dog out already or gave his food? Start more things and do not finish. And so on….

  3. Hahaha at least somebody understands 🙂 nice cartoons!
    You could make make a cartoon about the attempt to put everything in the bag for a working day: the items are in my head and even on a list but I forget the list hahaha and in my head are too many things and then arriving there I realize I forgot my glasses, my food or something else hahaha I try to take it easy
