Brain Fog


What is going on with me?  Why do I feel confused and disorganized?  Why can’t I focus?  How come when I speak it does not come out as I composed the message in my head?  This was abnormal for me.  I am a list maker and I would make a list and then forget where I put the list.  I could not concentrate.  I could not remember.   I felt sluggish.  What happened to my mental clarity?  I was very concerned because this was “not like me”.  I used to be detailed, consistent, and thorough.  It was time to dive into research to find out what was happening.  Turns out that there is a “thing” called “brain fog”.  This “brain fog” was affecting my work, my personal life, and it was scaring me because I did not understand what was happening with my ability to think clearly.  What I learned is that lack of sleep and stress was the root of my “brain fog”.  Brain fog is a symptom.  I realized that the aftermath of the latest episode(s) of their addiction and the aftermath of the latest situation was now affecting my ability to function.  This was not ok with me.  I am an organized person and I can’t find anything.  I have worked too hard to build a career and a life of “normal” for this to continue.  When I realized how the stress and lack of sleep was affecting me, I researched ways to reduce and/or eliminate “brain fog”.

Perhaps you can relate.  If so, here are the cliff notes version of what I found.

Are you fit, healthy, disciplined and strong in the fitness category?  I work on being healthy inside and out.  I try to take care of the one body that I have been given.  “Brain fog” was my body’s way of telling me how I was being affected by the enormous amount of stress that I was feeling.  “Brain fog” is real and if it is stress related you can eliminate it by finding ways to cope with the stress.  First you have to identify that you have “brain fog” find the root of it, and then take steps to remedy it.  This is my experience.  During my research I did find cases where medical conditions may also cause it; in this case seek medical advice.
