Just Close Your Eyes

I had a revelation about a month ago. Been practicing and found that the revelation WORKS!!!
Have I got your attention?

Fibromyalgia messes with my cognitive abilities. The symptom does not discriminate. It can intrude while I'm speaking, writing or while I'm trying to have a quiet moment, thinking. My mind will go blank while trying to think of the right word. I know the word I'm trying to say. I can tell you what letter it begins with. I can see the word written in my thought. I just can't get the word out of my mouth, on paper or in my thought.

When I was working for an attorney, I began to switch words while typing. The word I switched the most was "court." I would type "could" in place of "court." When you are doing a legal document, the word must be correct. You can't replace "court" with "could."

One day while talking with Dwain, I could not speak the word to complete my sentence. I closed my eyes and began to speak. I was able to complete the story. Each time I have difficulty conveying my words, I close my eyes and wha-la! I can complete the sentence. Although I am ecstatic to complete thoughts, I'm sure Dwain is happy too. This has been hard on his patience. He has learned to wait. However, once in awhile, he snaps at me to complete the sentence. So I know it is frustrating for him. I feel bad enough without his snaps. My self esteem lowers a notch.

Soooooo, if you have this Fibromyalgia symptom, try closing your eyes. I hope you can complete your story, your written word or your thoughts.


Yes, you can ..... complete your expression

Yes, you can ..... learn new technique,s no matter your age

  5. I do exactly the same thing! Also when people ask me when was this or when did you do that? When I have to think about it, my mind stays blank, but when I visualise it, I can remember a lot of things!

  6. This happens to me often. Having been Highly functioning R N, this is probably the most difficult thing for me... The worst thing is when your family states they feel the whole problem Is in your head and due to the drugs that are helping you. Then to be called"crazy" by your family... It is almost more than I can stand.

  7. Thanks...I was diagnosed 11 years ago, and I thought the 'cognitive thinking' pause were related to age...I guess I was in denial. Thanks for the boost.

  8. Thought it was aging issue as well. Went off some medication I been on 2 years ago, & after 2 year voila, memory again.
    Still forget words though.

    I am now using Dr.Mercola's Krill Oil & feel better with it. It side effects are all beneficial!

  9. Hi, think this is try no 3 and I'm hoping to get this one posted. I'm so happy to be talking to other people with the same issues. I have the fog very bad. I change my letters all the time while I speak and write. Does make people laugh though! I feel a bit like I have lost some of my mind. Happy blogging everyone! Debs, I love the things you write. I will be back soon!

  10. I have had fibro. since 1996 and also have severe word search problems. Closing my eys does work sometimes, but not everytime. It is very discouraging to be losing words like this. I was an RN for 25 years and words are a huge thing when it has to do with medical stuff. I enjoyed this post and will stay and have a look around. I also have a blog for fibromyalgia persons at www.fibromyalgiacareblog.com. Thanks for the great post!

  13. I have found that an old school seizure medication has changed my life!....it's called Gabapentin and I have to take high doses, but it actually changed my life. I could get out of bed and walk to the microwave to cook something to eat. After weeks if this I found a new doctor and she now has me lower pain meds instead of increasing. I tried everything, even tough I'm only 31. But, Gabapentin works!!!

  19. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from fibromyalgia , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered fibromyalgia in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always complain of joint stiffness, and he always have difficulty falling asleep . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to fibromyalgia . I never imagined fibromyalgia has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. fibromyalgia has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
