speech stumbling

Posted , 11 users are following.

Hi everyone. I'm just curious.i know I get the Fibro fog now and then but my biggest issue not being able to get my words.out properly I have to repeat the sentence a min of 3 times before I get it right. I'm finding that difficult to cope with. I'm 29 and a mother of 5 and looking at the confusion on their faces when I'm trying to tell them something is heart breaking sad I don't really think anything can be done about it. Does anyone else suffer like this??xxx

    Oh yes Nicola;   I think we ALL do.....and yes it is embarrassing.....and I have begun to think that this Fibro is here for us to learn something (wel let's say I'm trying to find a reason for ALL od these symptoms today).....maybe we now know what EVERY disease/condition  is like.......as we seem to have a Bit of them all...........I have meant to say things, and they have come out all wrong (there are times when I just have to Not say anything as I know I will put my foot in my mouth)......and as others' will say, with 5 cchildren, you really do have stress..........I guess, if  possible, it may come down to, for you, to learn to stop and think about what you want to say, before you  say something to your children????  This can be a hard learning test for you, but it may become essential, as if you have 5, and you only 29, I guess they are all too young to understand your Fibro???....................Bron

    I think the kids do pretty well to understand it bless them well my eldest 3 do. I tend not to look at the negatives so much now and stress used to be an issue put I have learnt how to push it away. I don't get stressed very often now. But yes I have had to slow down when I'm trying to say something to someone. It's tough x thanks all x

      Oh yes Sadie;  this too, is a problem with Not being able to remember the "word" that you want to use..............and for me, too, is the spelling ( I was always soooooovery good at spelling.....top of the class and getting awards for same in spelling competitions etc)...but even when typing on here, I have to really think, and go over the words Many times, to make sure that I have spelt them properly

    Morning Nicola and the rest of you Fibro sufferers, just when you think theres nothing left for this Fybro to cause us then its getting our words out, i think all the stories of how the fybro affects us should made into one long list and shown to the PIP tribunal people, would be quicker just to say read all this because i can get any one of these symptoms or all of them from one day to the next. Im very fortunate i havnt experienced this myself yet, i just wake up feeling nausiated every morning and the itchiness i have been experiencing after having  a shower, well im now waking up with before i have one. could the nausea and the itchiness be anything to do with the fybro i wonder which i get because of the M.E. i have.

      OMG no i had no idea that fibro caused itchiness and nausea too. Aww all this with the menaopause too, how do we get through the day, trying to get people to understand well they just dont, im even dreading visitors latley too, how bad is that. I plod on, make myself look as good as i can, smile, makes cups of tea, chat, give the impression im ok, always messing up with texts too, having to re read everything before i send of late. this will make you laugh, i sent a message to my son you coming around later Sh....t  (one letter  missing hear! ) Thing is we must have a sence of humour even if its with in ourselves  lol   Take care

    Like everyone else here, my thoughts and words are chaotic at times, but my short term memory seems awful too, my daughter tells me something and half an hour later I ask her the same question sometimes because I can't remember her answer, sometimes because I don't remember asking!! My spelling is worrying me too, as an English teacher, my spelling, or lack of remembering how to spell sometimes simple words is getting to me. I am trying to accept it as part of the fibro, and not beat myself up about it, and laugh at some of my silly words like parcark instead of carpark, but I do get frustrated and annoyed when I can't remember!
