It's The Brain Fog

Recommended Posts

Well everyone, I have done it again! This time, I pinned spam here on the board. Yep, I read it, and just went ahead and did it without it even registering. Just yesterday, my husband and I were shopping, and I had so much trouble understanding a somewhat complicated transaction (a return/discount/account opening/re-purchase) that I embarassed myself. By the time the whole thing was completed, I was sweating and said to my husband--could I have been any stupider? I mean, I know I should have followed the whole thing--we're not talking rocket science here--but it just lost me. So, I say to all of you reading the board today, I'm sorry--I dropped the ball. Ever since my last gluten CC reaction 3 weeks ago, I am having a tough time snapping back--both physicaly and mentaly :( .

Patti, please look at it in context! No harm is done. I have done far far worse things when glutened, like telling my boss the truth! (anyone else done this?)

Lets step back an I'll tell you how I nearly killed myself ....

So I walk out and leave my keys and the door is an enormous secutiry door. So instead of the sensible thing (breaking a small window on my back entrance or asking my neighbours to climb off thier balcony onto mine) I can't cope with talking to people so I climb around the outside of the 5th floor building on a 2" ledge ...

Of course just at the point of no return I get scared and Im stuck there for 1 hour!

All of this to avoid having to talk to someone!

Now what was the problem again? It will look a lot smaller when you are feeling better, ask your DH for a cuddle!

Okay, I think you win gfp. But I do understand why you did that. That brain fog is really horrible and insidious. I'm coming off of a glutening myself. When glutened, I avoid people to the point that I don't even come here! And this is a safe zone!
