Bad Day

That would be an amazing gathering @Auriel @JamieMarc and @JayCS !

I feel the four of us could either change the world for the better or veg with laughter 24 hrs a day! 😍

A happy day to you all
 
We'd do both!!!
😙❤️
 
My memory is getting worse and I am getting really worried about it. I don't know if it is fibro fog or alzheimer's, three of my relatives had suffered from alzheimer's how would I know the difference?
 
Hi @male
It's worrying isnt it? I have the double whammy of perimenopause fog and fibromyalgia fog. I really thought I was going mad or getting Alzheimer's as well.
I would have a word with your gp about your concerns, given your family history. It may put your mind at rest of they give you appropriate tests.

It may sound trite, but I do think doing crosswords or puzzles et c can help ' exercise ' my mind?

My own fog is for me is worse when I can't think of simple day to day words, like door or rug. But yeah, I do muddle things up like getting the taps the wrong way round. I try to think before I act. Frustrating, when simple tasks fail,and mornings are a big no.

Do ask your gp.

Definitely talk to your doctor about this, as suggested above.
there are specific tests that a specialist can give to you which will determine whether you have the beginnings of Alzheimer's or not. A GP is not going to be able to administer these specialized tests, so you need to be referred to someone who can do that.
 
I am so sorry for your bad day. O have a constant pain in my shoulder and upper arm since last 3 days. I hope you just have much better days start soon. I know your frustration my husband is an extremely passionate and helpful person but sometimes I have a bad feeling he has to do more and more because my illnesses, but believe me our husbands not thing we are a burden on them. We are married 48 years went through so much, and he never complain because I am ill, and I am sure your hubby is the same. take care and fingers X better days coming!
 
Thank you @Edit. Some days just seem too much dont they? Just like what next??

I do empathise with you about a slight guilt at our husbands stepping up to do the things we can't do anymore. But I try to remember it's a partnership and we also help them when we are more able to do so. If the show were on the other foot so to speak.
We have a bit of catching up to do - we have been together ' only ' 30+ years, and weirdly married for 5 (!) it's all give and take really and we just try to work to our strengths and weaknesses through all the years.
I hope your pain lessens for you. Taking each day as it comes like all.of us
 
@SBee @male

That worry of "is it dementia or Alzheimer's?" has had me query the doc a few times over the years before I found out I have fibro.

I still have that concern, so now and then I run it by the doc, bot so far, I don't tick the boxes, thankfully.

I agree with @sunkacola , check out with a doctor. Better to know if it is or isn't , and if it isn't, will help you to stop worrying.
