Brain Fog Files 3b – U.S. version Rissoles

My original comic featured ‘rissoles’ and ‘singlets’. But a dear reader contacted me to let me know that there’s no such thing as ‘rissoles’ in America (my condolences to you, because they’re delicious!), and that you don’t call the things you wear under your shirt in the wintertime ‘singlets’ either. So I made a U.S. translation of my comic, and popped the American ‘Mom’ in there, so my friends in the States can share too!

  1. Very cute! I remember telling my kids to get in the “envelope” when they were little, and they were so confused! Of course I meant “elevator” instead. I just waved my hands towards where I needed them to go!

  2. omGosh!! I feel like you’re in my brain looking at the world through my eyes!! I’m sorry you have to go through all of this but it’s comforting to know that I (and others) aren’t alone. I’m 49 and have suffered with the unknown since I was 27. I was just diagnosed in April of 2016 but I still feel crazy. I can look at a tree and call it a dog and not even realize why everyone’s looking at me crazy, I’ve just accepted that I am (on most days lol) and go about my business.

    1. Welcome to the world of dysautonomia, sister! You’re not crazy, and you’re not alone. *hugs*

      Getting on with your day is really all that you can do (well, that and laughing at yourself!). One of my favourite quotes is, “Life may give you a cactus, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit on it…”

      P.S. Like they say in Alice in Wonderland…

      “Do you think I’ve gone round the bend?”

      “I’m afraid so. You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

      😉 Welcome to becoming one of “the best people” xx


  3. 🙂 I have major troubles just forgetting words, names etc. it’s so annoying!!! Another thing I do is forget where I put stuff, all the time! I just found my wedding rings that I hid for safe keeping in JANUARY!!

    1. Oh dear!! I’m glad you found them eventually!

      I must admit, I have the same problem. Mr Happy and I went away for a week, and I hid my external / backup hard drive, so that it wouldn’t get stolen if someone broke in while we were away.

      But of course, I totally forgot…not only WHERE I’d hidden it, but that I’d hidden it at all! I couldn’t work out why I couldn’t find it in any of the usual places. It took me months to stumble across it!

  4. I have brain fog caused by two things: congenital hydrocephalus and anxiety about my Mum’s health. (Yes, Mum, not Mom,because I am an Anglophile.) Mum is old, has dementia, and has severe acid reflux. I worry about her. But I digress. I have brain fog and I thoroughly enjoyed the rissoles/singlets comic strip. It’s so cute I squealed.

    I have been an Anglophile since 1994. Rissole and singlet sounds much more interesting than hamburger and undershirt. Jolly good terminology. I also love the word boster, which means something exciting.
