- When I'm tired or not feeling well, I call everyone Bob, even our dogs and kids. We laugh about it, so for Christmas last year my husband and kids got me a shirt that said "it's all about Bob" :)

being a stay at home mom
- About a year and a half ago I was trying real hard to remember when my kids first sat up when they first took steps and so on. the reason I was trying to remember is a friend was asking these questions and I totally felt stupid I could not remember to save my own life. So my neurologist put me on Ariceipt now I feel like I am older than i am suppose to be. Total embarassment not knowing about my kids childhood.

- Hubby and I went to model homes to look at decorating ideas. We saw 8 houses, and it was over 80 degrees outside. At the final house, he asked me if I liked the stair rail. I visualized where our stairs were in our house but I drew a blank. Then I remembered where they were. A few minutes later I realized that I had visualized the stairs in the wrong place...we have lived in the same house for 12 years!!!
Daft or not?
- I thought I'd just I'd have another look at reader's responses to the stupid things people say about MS etc. There was this particular entry - I thought "that woman has the same experiences I have" - how interesting - then I discovered it was me - I'd totally forgotten I'd responded to the article. Help someone!
how about the time when...
- I attend a Wednesday night bible study. We alternate between the guys, gals and couples, Well, one eveing I arrived at a couples meeting without my husband! I forgot him at home:)

I DON'T DRINK!
- I was dxd 6 years ago with relapsing remitting. Last year my family and I were on vacation in Florida and went out to dinner. Well, as soon as I arrived at the restaurant the manager of the restaurant passed by me and jokingly, but 'loudly' exclaimed "no drinks for this lady she has had enough!" I was embarrased about my lack of balance, but smiled and felt sorry for him. IF HE ONLY KNEW!

primary progressive MS
- I am looking for info on this "branch" of the MS tree. I have been dxd with primary progressive MS. I would much rather have the relapsing/remission kind if I get a choice. :-) I don't see much about this branch as most info seems to be related to relapsing/remission. As I understand it, once I start going down the slippery slope I stay there & a new baseline is established. Anyone out there with this kind that can share some insight or knowledge with me?

losing my way
- I have "home" programmed into my GPS as well as common destinations. That way if I am feeling foggy I just turn the GPS on and let it direct me. Forgetting how to get around an area that I have grown up in is distressing!

- I was on my way to my daughter's wedding which was to be at a guest ranch in the wilds of Arizona. Suddenly, I absolutely had no idea where I was or what I was supposed to be doing. Thankfully, I was at a stop sign in the middle of nowhere, because I couldn't even remember how to drive and shift and stuff. I had to call for help, and felt confused for a few days after that, but not that BLANK out that I had for a while there. I was petrified!! I've crossed this country by myself with my kids many times, but can no longer trust that I can find my way anywhere anymore. A sad end to a dedicated wanderer.

Where am I?
- The scariest moments are when I'm traveling in a car and suddenly realize I don't know where I am.

- I have always been taught and aware of certain etiquette, dining, social, anything where I'd be in public with my parents and had to be a "good girl." I was diagnosed in 2008 after what felt like years of confusing symptoms. I started seeing cognitive problems especially after doing something so long and then completely forgetting what I'm doing. I went to set the table a few months ago and couldn't remember the most basic stuff. Totally looked foreign to me, and I have to think about it pretty hard to get it right now. That, and the word for another word exchange ... that's almost every day. i.e. Plate when I mean washer, window when I mean car trunk. It's everywhere, so nobody is alone on this one! :)

Do Not Tell My Husband
- I have trouble remember where I put things. Recently, I have lost some much needed paper work and I blame my poor husband. Well, I now know it is me that is losing the paper work and other items around the household. I cannot blame my poor husband any longer!
