    Cotton Wool Head

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by SeaBreeze, Apr 24, 2008.

    What moments have you had when you have been extremely tired and stuffed up?

    I mentioned in a thread yesturday that we had a long weekend cause it's Australia day. I thought it was odd even as I posted it but thought nothing of it. Until today cause I remembered it's not Australia Day, but ANZAC day tomorrow.. So thats is what I call cotton wool head moment. You're so tired or exhausted/drained that you say things or do things that make you cringe. Has this happened to anyone else?


    (in case you are wondering- I am very much cotton wool head at the moment!) :D

    Every summer. Bloody hayfever.

    I wondered at that, but figured you meant ANZAC.

    HAHAHAH.


    I was pretty embarressed and felt really bad about mixing up Australia day- which is a day of celebration and ANZAC day, which isn't much about celebrating as remembering those that fought at gallipolli and the diggers in the wars.

    Everyday

    *punches hayfever in the face*

    It's worse if I've just come home from work or uni.

    *kicks work and uni in the face- with both feet*

    When I have just woke up, I say the stupidist things. Honestly thought, I am a little slow with things like that myself, never realising until when I am meant to be sleeping. Lmao !!

    Us folks diagnosed with fibromyalgia call that fibro fog.
    it hits at the most awkward of times and you are left feeling totally lost and stupid.
    If I am in public I always take Don with me. When I get that deer in the headlights look he takes over.
    It is a true symptom to the disease but not very well known or understood.

    I know that I'm tired when I get this way. I say that "my mind is melting" and I start to get wind down for the day because I'm just not capable of doing much else. I forget things, I can't think of the right words to say (the uh, whatcha-ma-call it) or I get confused easily. Most of the time, I am very sharp and can finish other people's sentences when they can't think of the right words to say; but when 'my mind starts melting', I know that I need sleep. :p

    Some rather embarassing moments have happened because of fibro fog.
    I was introducing my mother to a friend and I forgot my mothers name.
    was talking to the premier of Ontario and the fog hit and I had no clue what I was saying or who I was saying it to. Don came to my rescue.
    I call things thingamajigs, whatchamacallsit, and you know that thing that does.
    being married for 32 years has its advantages.
    also a good sense of humour really helps.

    that's the key I think Lessa, being able to laugh about it afterwards. :)
