Fifty Shades of Brain Fog, Part Four

Hi spoonies! The fog is back! 

I didn’t think I was going to do this many brain fog cartoons, but my life keeps giving me new examples as I wander around in a confused state, trying to avoid bumping into things.  I hope you will enjoy Part Four! Please also check out Part One,  Part Two, and Part Three.

I  wander into different rooms in my house and never remember why I went into each room. Anyone else?

You know when you just can’t remember the name of something? Here is a never-before-seen game show.

I was not good with computers before I got Lyme disease. Now I am completely lost.

And finally, it’s always fun when you run into random people and you have no idea who they are.

That’s all for now! Wishing everyone a low-fog, low-symptom day/week/month. 💚💜💛💙 As always, feel free to submit your brain fog stories in the comments. I’ll link to your blog, website, or social media if I turn them into a cartoon.😃

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. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and I have two short cartoon videos on YouTube.

  1. Thanks for the comic strips. #relatable
    I’m sorry your brain fog is that bad. 😦 I used to have meds that made me just as bad so I get it. Now fortunately it’s only real bad when I have an energy crash. The brain fog first shows up as an inability to understand complex sentences or ideas. It creates a traffic jam in my head 🚗 🚸. Then it shows up as an inability to talk or string words together. Lol so pointing at things and grunting approval or not has become our way of communicating in such moments and that’s why I especially relate to the jeopardy strip 😂 Keep up the good work and rest well.

  2. I found AND read Parts 1-4 so I will consider that an accomplishment for today. These are my life!! One “shade” of brain fog that plays out for me on a daily basis is walking into the kitchen to feed my (very vocal) cat, washing his food dish that’s been soaking in the sink, washing the rest of the dishes while I’m there, and then going back to doing whatever I was doing before I went to the kitchen. Did you forget that I was supposed to be feeding the cat by the end of that story? Because I frequently do, until he reminds me by pawing at my feet as I’m walking out of the kitchen again! XD

    1. You made me laugh, Neeks. Cats are clever and easy going, I’m sure yours forgives you even as it tries to remind you. One of mine is right here purring by my hand, he’s the one who would remind me of the litter and other things. My newly adopted kitten is vocal so now there won’t be any missed meals lol a great thing we bought to allow me to rest of I couldn’t wash their bowls is a stack of Corelle soup bowls at the thrift store, super cheap. Light to pick up even when tired, I just change the bowls without having to pick them up first if I’m not feeling well, and they wash so well on top of not breaking if my hands fail me.
