Brain Fuzz

Have you ever felt that you are losing gray cells? Somebody has asked you a question and you know you should know the answer, but for the life of you, you just can't remember. That is how I have been feeling lately. Yesterday my son asked me where his new swim goggles were that I bought for him this summer while he was away at camp. Now I remember buying two pairs. I can picture my husband and I as we stood at the check out line to pay for them. But from there on, I can not remember what happened to them. Did I put them away for safe keeping? I have no idea.

I realize that stress often affects me this way. This summer has been one of tremendous stress for both my husband and I. At the moment we see no relief in sight. As I look at our schedule for this Fall I realize that it will bring additional stress. I know that God is not surprised by what we are going through. I know that I can trust Him. But I seek your prayers right now because I am feeling incredibly overwhelmed. Please pray for wisdom for my husband and I and that I will be able to think clearly and not have continual brain fuzz! :)

Awwww, I know how you feel. I have been this way all year so far, now granite the grey's are really coming in fast, and I really should color but yes the forgetfulness has really consumed me. I have had a really rough year so far, but thanks to my Lord I just keep asking for the peace to be with me, and for help getting through each day. Amen!

I am praying for you and your family. God Bless
p.s. I hope you find the goggles :)

My co-worker and I were talking about this exact same thing today! Both of us seem to have the Brain Fuzz! Must be a common thing for forty year old and up women! ha

Praying God will give you strength for the load you carry!
