Not Alzheimer’s

   So I went to my primary doctor the other day for a regular fibro check-up and he was reading his notes on the computer from my pain management doctors office nurse. She had left some notes because I had filed out their questionnaire and I had wrote that I have severe memory loss. Which I do. I forget everything 5 seconds later and she asked me about it so I just told her I assumed it was normal from my fibro.  But she acted like it might not be. Like maybe it’s something to worry about.  I don’t know I never worried about it before but she kind of had me a little bit worried.  Then a few days later I go to my GP doctor which was not too long ago.  I guess the nurse had put notes in my chart.  So, he questioned me about it and I’m thinking oh wow she really was worried because she put notes in there for my GP doctor. Which so he did a little test on me and thank goodness it came out the way it did.  Because it proves that I do not have Alzheimer’s or dementia. That it is literally just because of my fibromyalgia. Which on another note is kind of sad. It’s because the fibromyalgia is so bad and distracts my brain because my brain is so busy fighting it that it can’t hold on to things memory wise unless I really want to hold on to it.  I literally have to concentrate hard. Like say it over and over in my brain. I remember last year I forgot to give my daughter lunch for cross-country so I forget important things. That was just one that got to me the most because it’s my daughter and food you know and apparently you got to feed them to grow them and so they live. Things like that haha. Anyways so the great news is I do not have Alzheimer’s or dementia. It is just once again because of my stupid fibro. Thank God! It’s probably the only time I’d ever said thank God it’s my stupid fibro.

  1. Oh, I relate. It’s one of the reasons I’m on disability now. I literally cannot remember stuff. I assumed it was from my bipolar disorder but I do have fibro and it’s absolutely possible it’s from that. Glad you got some answers from your GP 🙂

    1. I didn’t know you could get disability for that. Interesting. I wish I could get on disability myself. Honestly I’m not sure when or how. I guess the first thing is I have to be unemployed for 6 months. So that’s what I’m waiting on. But, Thank you! 😊
