I Forgot, I'm Sorry: The Fibro Fogged Brain

I must admit, I was all set to give you a post on caring for children while having Fibromyalgia.  The wheels have been churning all day for the post, but those thoughts will have to come another day because I something else just grabbed my attention, my Fibro Fogged Brain.

Fog is something that I'm so used to that I almost forget it's there-- AND YES!-- that pun is COMPLETELY intended!

I'm a lot like the rest of society.  I forget phone numbers because I have my phone.  I even forget important dates because I diligently put them in my phone to forget.  But the thing that irritates me the most is when I forget to connect with the people I care about. 

There are times when you will see me on Facebook "liking" what seems like hundreds of comments.  I may spend some time in a forum and comment a few dozen times in one day.  You also might find me responding to emails, or blog comments in a large number too.  Why?  Well, the answer is simple.

I forgot.  I forgot that I have blog comments, Facebook friends, Pinterest People, Tweet Peeps, emails, and forum friends.  I sometimes (okay maybe A LOT of times) forget to even acknowledge my face to face time friends too. 

And I forgot because my brain doesn't have the capacity to remember everything anymore.  Sometimes I'm lucky if I remember what my name is, let alone what I have scheduled.  And today's day and age doesn't make that easy when you have to cram your schedule along with your family's into one day.  I have triple booked my time along with my kids-- it happens!

What I can say is that I'm sorry.  I'm human.  I have a disability and I forget.  But that doesn't mean that I don't care about you.  Nor does that mean that you should give up on me if you feel that I'm neglecting you.  I do try.  Improvement is ALWAYS something I strive for.

BUT please know, I have good days where I remember everything including your birthday.  I value you.  I love you!  Each and everyone of you!  Whether you are a face to face friend, a Facebook friend, a Forum Friend, my Pinterest People (yeah that's my line LOL!), Twitter Peeps, or a commenter on my blog, I love ALL of you!

And when my days are bad, please know that I think of you even when you think I don't.  Even when you hate me because I have neglected you for months.

I only neglect you because I'm sick.  And I'm not saying it for pity.  I don't want that from you.  I hate to be labeled as disabled.  We are ALL capable.  Every living creature is.  It's just that some of us need more time than others.

Stay fabulous!
Love and friendship,

Kimberley
