These days, my brain fog is very rare, but some of the things it has made me do, are pretty hilarious. I’ll note them below.
- Taking the dirty laundry to put in the washing machine, and putting it in the wheelie bin instead.
- Using my house key to try and get through the front door, but it didn’t work. Then I realised I was trying to get in to the neighbour’s house.
- Another time, my key wasn’t working and I realised I was using my work office key to get in my home front door.
- Putting hand-wash on my toothbrush instead of toothpaste.
- Getting various words muddle up, like: “I’m wetting my merds uddled mup.” (I’m getting my words muddled up.)”
- Writing a blog post and completely forgetting what I was doing, half way through.
- Putting my pyjamas on completely inside out and back to front.
- Taking clean laundry out the washing machine and immediately putting it back in to be washed. Again.
- Putting lipstick on my eyes.
- Making a list for the food shop, getting to the shop and realising I forgot to bring it.
- Using my phone to call my partner, to tell him I’d lost my phone.
- Looking all over the house for my glasses when I was wearing them.
- in the bath, squeezing conditioner on to my hand then running it all over my face as if it’s face wash.
