At Least We’re Still Laughing

on October 8, 2013

Today, my husband told me, “Your brain is so entertaining.”  He made this comment after I asked him, “Is there still traffic ahead?”  What I meant was, “Is there still construction ahead?”  I knew I wasn’t using the correct word, but my mouth just spits out whatever, like it’s too impatient for my brain to catch up.

I just had a wrong number phone call.  I told her, “You have the incorrect number.”  I kind of said it slowly, because I knew that wasn’t what I’d usually say and I knew it would sound funny, but I couldn’t come up with the word “wrong”.  Come on brain!  Wake up and use the correct words, please.

  1. So sorry to hear that, I hate have that word soup problem where you replace a word with something ridiculous on occasion. It happens to the best of us, and so we struggle onward! Good luck finding the right words in the future and that your brain fights the pain to stay agile or witty!

      I’ve found, if i think too hard, I forget what I’m trying to say anyway. I just put it out there and even though I’m saying the wrong thing, the kids and the hubby can usually figure out what I mean anyway.

    Often I think Fibro Fog exists to give us something to laugh at during a time when we need to laugh.

    I stumbled upon your blog through another blog that happens to link to mine, even thoguh mine is more of an autism blog than a fibro/chronic illness blog. However, just as I read this post, I realize, woah, I can relate to this. When I read your post, and some others on fibro fog, I couldn’t keep from thinking that autistic overload has a lot of the same symptoms. Now I for one have a few fibro-like symptoms too.

    By the way, I really had to laugh at that first situation, although I had to think a bit about what you meant since English is my second language.

      Glad you stopped by and could relate. I like to think I’m usually pretty clear when I write about situations that happen, but my brain is so sluggish this week. I’ve been struggling to get the correct words out. I wasn’t sure what “autistic overload” was, but when I looked it up on wikipedia, it came back with sensory overload and said that fibromyalgia patients can experience this. I never knew that fibro could have this associated with it, even though I’ve experienced every item on the list. Sorry to blather on. Thanks for visiting!

    There are those days I open my mouth and halfway through the sentence I pull a blank. No wrong word, just a complete blank. I am left there with my mouth hanging open like a goober until something approximating the right word comes into my brain. My husband has learned sometimes he needs to throw words in there until something sticks. I can relate.

Keep it positive...
