Knock On Wood?

One of my friends on my mailing list sent me this. I think only those of us who understand this illness can truly laugh at this kind of thing.

Three ME/CFS patients were discussing the travails of brain fog. One said, "Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand in front of the refrigerator and can't remember whether I need to put it away, or start making a sandwich."

The second chimed in, "Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down."

The third one responded, "Well, I'm glad I don't have those sort of problems, knock on wood," as she rapped her knuckles on the table.

"That must be the door, I'll get it!"
