for those of you who do not truly comprehend what "fibro fog" means, as "the dumb", I give you a piece of my morning:

7am take off my pajamas and put on undies, pants, and a bra. Look for my short sleeved black sweater by staring at a pile of clothes for about 10 minutes and realizing I will need to move and touch things since most everything is black and I can not identify the sweater like this. Shuffle things around for a while, but don't find it.

7:10am Ein meows at me in the "Mommy, it's breakfast time!!" whine. So I go feed the cats. It occurs to me that a cup of coffee would be tasty.

7:15am I go and sit down at the computer and stare at my inbox. It occurs to me that I am cold and should put on a shirt or something. I stare at my inbox some more (while I scroll up and down, I don't actually *open* anything. Just stare at it). It occurs to me that I have the dumb and should call Sr. and Jr. bosses to let them know I have the dumb (they have told me not to come in like this, which is good, so I don't fuck anything up).

7:20am Ein maos for attention, and starts tossing bottles of pills on the floor. Luckily they have lids on securely. I watch this for a few minutes. Then he rattles the top of the jingly stick toy. So I pull out the bamboo toy that is close to me and play with him for a few minutes. It occurs to me that I am cold and should put something on. It occurs to me that a cup of coffee would be tasty.

7:25am TV is making a lot of noise, so I look at it. No idea what I was watching. Cartoon Network.

7:30am it occurs to me that I am cold and should put something on. It occurs to me that coffee would be tasty. I go into the kitchen and turn on the electric tea kettle. (again, thank you for the intro to the idea, Mike). I realize I am hungry and would like a bagel. In the 3 minutes it takes the kettle to heat, I vacillate back and forth between blueberry or plain bagel and decide to go for blueberry. I slice the bagel and put it in the toaster.

7:35am I mix up my cup of coffee. Hurrah for instant coffee from Japan that is actually tasty. Something smells really tasty and it occurs to me that a bagel would be good. I notice that I have a toasted one waiting for me in the toaster. YAY. I put butter on it and go sit down.

7:45am it occurs to me that I am cold and should put something on. I sip my coffee. It *is* tasty. mmmm coffee. I stare at my inbox. And take a bite of my bagel.

7:50am it occurs to me that I am cold and should put something on. I sip some more of my coffee and look at the pile of clothing.

7:55am it occurs to me that I am cold and should put something on. It occurs to me that the red thing my eyes are resting on is a polar fleece sweatshirt and it would be warm, so I go grab it and put it on.

8:00 it occurs to me that it took me an *hour* to put on a shirt because I was cold, and it would be a good way to explain how fibro fog affects me to all of you, so I sit down to write this all out.

and now you know what I mean by The Dumb. I mean *dumb*.
