Living with Brain Fog: What it’s Like on My Cloud

Written By: JoJoisms - Jun• 23•14

110I wrote this a while back as a Facebook Note. I copy and paste it here this week for those of you dealing with brain fog. It can be frustrating, embarrassing and…let’s face it…FUNNY!


You are making your breakfast, toast and butter, and you realize you need a knife so you go to the other side of the kitchen to get it. On the way, you forget why you are walking. So you walk back to the toaster and, looking at the toast, you suddenly you remember you need a knife. So you head back to the flatware drawer and realize you also need a plate so you grab a plate and head back to the toaster where you remember you forgot to get the knife.

You walk back to the flatware drawer and promptly forget why you are there. So you walk back to the toaster and see that the toast has popped up. Looking at the toast for a minute (or an hour), you realize you forgot the knife again so you walk back to the drawer. On the way, you pass the refrigerator and realize that you also need the butter. So you grab the butter and head back to the toaster where you remember that you forgot the knife…AGAIN. Walking back to the drawer, you forget why you are there.

You head back to the toaster as this is the only thing you can now remember. When you get there, you realize that you can’t eat your toast without the butter and you need knife to spread the butter so you head back to the flatware drawer to get the knife when you pass the clock. It reads 12 noon so, now that it’s lunchtime, you’d rather have a sandwich.

At this point, you’re too tired to make it so you just sit down and that is why you find petrified toast in the toaster and melted butter on the counter at dinner!


Some days all you can do is laugh at yourself and this was one of those days.  Giggling is good medicine as Proverbs 17:22 says up on the JoJoisms banner.  God gives us this for days such as this.

Do you have brain fog from Insomnia, Fibromyalgia, Peri Menopause, Hashimoto’s Disease or any other chronic issue? Maybe you do, but you don’t remember? LOL If you do, I’d love for you to share your experiences here as a comment and, as always, please pass this post on to anyone you can *remember* of who might need a giggle break.

    Oh, yes! I know I have brain fog!
    My brother and I bought a 2 part movie set and came home, watched the first movie with the family and called it a night. Maybe a week later he came into the living room and seeing that no one had picked anything to watch yet suggested that we watch the 2nd movie, saying that if we don’t watch it soon we’ll have to watch the first one again because I will have forgotten it, he turns to me, “You do remember watching it, right?”. Then he declares, “I think everyone in this room knows what I mean!” Good thing I have him to keep me laughing!
