More than one = confusion

Does anyone else suffer brain fog when trying to converse with more than one friend at a time? Yesterday I had a visit from a couple of friends and although I know them well I found it difficult to take it all in. Brain fog I suppose! I loved seeing them but they talk too quickly for me now so I end up unable to join in and I feel exhausted. I find it hard to form words so it’s doubly tiring . Sound familiar anybody?

I understand what you’re saying totally.

I now live by the rule of One Thing At A Time, whether that be myself attempting to do something or trying to talk to people, form a queue, so to speak.

@merfield hi!
Not completely the same but definitely finding it really hard to concentrate when people are talking to me. I just keep zoning out! Im annoying myself doing daft things around the house. This morning I was heating up milk for the kids and when the microwave beeped i immediately picked up the cup that hadnt been in the microwave to check how hot it was and obviously it was cold just sitting on the counter so i set it back down where it was and put the microwave back on! I walked off and suddenly realised what id done.
Sounds like a silly thing now i say it but its frightening at 32 to feel like you’re losing your mind! I just cant seem to think straight and i dont feel properly in control! Hope its just a phase!

Happy Wednesday! Yes, yes & yes! My biggest problem is when I’m working onsite with a client. We often have meetings where we explore software issues they are having. They get all excited & everybody starts talking at once. I get totally bumfuzzled & forget what we’re even talking about! I have to ask them to stop & start over but slowly and one at a time. I’m always so embarrassed. I think I’ll start telling them about my cognitive issues before we start just so they’ll not be surprised in the middle of an important conversation. 😩

Thanks sooo much – I thought it was just me but sorry for you all that you have similar malfunctioning/non speedy brain issues.

I’m having suspicions that a certain Donald should have an MRI.
He keeps repeating himself and has trouble understanding things as well.
I’m off to stretch my overdraft and buy America.
I’m sure @rmdaniels will help me out with the paperwork 😀

@merfield YES! Totally. I feel that people are talking far too fast and I have to request them to slow down and holding a conversation with more than one person is very difficult, to say the least. I’m left utterly exhausted afterwards. Guess it’s the brain fog and disease progression. I too, have to concentrate on one thing at a time. ☹️

@petlammb, thank you. I am obviously not alone. But it must be tough on our friends too to see us struggling. But on the bright side: We Are Still Going!! 😊👍🏻🍀xx

@rmdaniels…..We Need You Paperwork Queen 👋🏻👍🏻😊xx
