  1. I don’t have chronic fatigue but can certainly relate to brain fog after having my babies, so I found the gadgets in this article really interesting. I often misplace my keys: I put them down without thinking, or try to get them away from my baby (who thinks they are the greatest toy ever, and sets the car alarm off) then forget where I put them so I think the first gadget on your list sounds like something I could really do with.

Definitely check out the MyQ Garage Door Opener device, it takes the worry out of trying to remember of you actually DID close the garage door. 

  9. It seems like so many people are suffering from brain fog. I think instead of just worrying about it, finding an alternative is the smart choice here. Out of all your smart gadgets, the Tile Mate caught my eye. I think that can be a real use in my house. It is great how it has an app and it is also easy to set up. I’m definitely buying this.

    Thank you so much for the rundown on these gadgets.

    • Thanks for leaving a comment Sujander. Yes the Tile Mate is a great gadget, even for those who are not suffering from brain fog it can be handy. 

  10. I ahve never suffered from Chronic Fatigue (CF) myself but I watched my cousin go through it.  He was a champion cyclist and headed to the Olympics.  Then CF kicked in and it was over.  We were quite close at the time and shared a house and I remember at the start, before it was diagnosed the forgetfulness that he suffered.  As an elite athlete, he was fastidious in everything he did in regards to planning and execution.  He started forgetting to food preparation, then cooking things twice and, at its worst, getting lost on rides.  He was always tired and we thought he was overdoing it, but no, it was the start of CF.

    He had it severly and it was almost like he had dementia for a little while – it was quite scary.  Thanks for your article.. he could have done with some of these gadgets for sure.


    • Hi Paul thanks for stopping by and your comments. So sad to hear about your cousin. Unfortunately chronic fatigue syndrome hits many high achieving individuals. I wonder did your cousin get to the root cause of his chronic fatigue syndrome? The cognitive issues suffered in chronic fatigue syndrome can be very debilitating for many. 

  11. I forget my keys constantly! True story, I accidentally threw my keys in the garbage once and had no idea. I looked everywhere for them and my wife suggested that I check the trash. As gross as that sounds, that’s where I found them and now my keys have a tile attached to them. My wallet has one slipped inside too.

    Your recommendations are fantastic and I’ll definitely look into the MyQ garage door opener. Thank you!

    • Thanks for stopping by, some people are just naturally forgetful, never mind being afflicted with brain fog. In those cases the Tile mate is really helpful. If you’re the type who loses their phone constantly, you can stick one to your phone too. 

  12. Battle of the brain fog, I think we have all been there at one time or another. A lot of these are great ideas, especially the automatic plant waterer. I could really use several of these in a smaller size for an herb garden.

    I find creating a “to-do” list really helps with remembering to get things done and an established routine of where things go. The calendar has proven to be a time tested item that keeps everyone abreast of what is needed at home and keeps me on track when working. Besides, it does not need batteries. 

    • Hi and thanks for commenting. Automatic plant waterers are available in different sizes and are a great idea I think. Particularly for a herb garden as some of the softer herbs like basil really like to have a good supply of water. And yes the fridge calendar is ‘old school’ but great as it’s in a central position for all to see when placed in the kitchen. 

  13. It just seems like this list of top selling gadgets for the foogy brained was made for my friend and I. She forgets if she’s fed her pet or not so often that she is now considering giving it away even though she loves the cat so much. I’ll get her the Dogness Automatic Smart feeder Camera. I’m sure she would be delighted to have something that helps her keep her cat. 

    And I like the Lechuza Cubico Automatic Watering Planter, even though my forgetfulness isn’t as bad as my friend’s, there’s no harm in having one of those and resting my mind about making the mistake of over-watering  or under-watering my precious plants. I’m sure that a lot of people would really love this one. 

  14. After reading your article I think that I don’t have chronic fatigue but I realize that I have more brain fog, because I have a problem where I keep forgetting things that my wife ask me to get from the store which is frustrating sometimes this to happen all the time.

    Thank you for sharing this great information very helpful.

    • Thanks for stopping by my site. Maybe you are just forgetful? write a list of what your wife needs and take it to the store with you. No gadget needed I think.
