Brain Fog

Brain Fog

I am getting worried that my brain fog is getting worse. I seem to be forgetting things more often than I use to. I forgot to take two things today, a letter from my doctor for my Psychologist and my sound equipment for my music practice earlier tonight. Getting quite frustrating having to either race home to fetch it or forget it happened.

Oh forgot at 1 pm that my maid was around and almost said to my mom why did you leave the door open, so it was 3 things today.

I try to use lists, but I keep losing them. 😄 Seriously I find paper lists are best IF you can remember to take them with you. I have tried the cellphone notepad, but I am not as comfortable with it. Try talking out loud to yourself. Sometimes I remember things that way. But yeah, feel your pain sweetie!

I use my diary and I literally write everything down in it and then I also set reminders on my phone too!!!! That’s my ocd!!! But if I didn’t do this I would be totally lost 💖💖

My memory sucks and it’s soooo frustrating!! I do have lists and reminders for everything but it’s the dumb things that get to you. I get so upset when I’m in the middle of a story and can’t remember the word I need or a persons name, which happens all the time lately. I also will start a story and get sidetracked and go off into a completely different story and forget to finish my first one! Ugh! 😡. The worst is when you go into a room for something then forget why you went there in the first place. Or, you see something in that room that needs done and you do it instead of the reason you went in there! This happened to me the other night and I swear I went in different rooms about three times each before I remembered everything I was to do! I don’t know how but the odd time I forget to take my meds and this really pisses me off! I’ll be sitting or doing something and wonder why I’m in so much pain, then I realize I forgot my meds! I mean how do you do that? It’s one of the only things that help me yet I forget to take them? Then of course they take more time to kick in so you’re in pain longer than normal. God it’s so frustrating!!!😡😡

I know for me, i struggled so much in the beginning, it's been almost 2 years since being diagnosed.
I could barely remember the names of the people i worked with... now i am doing so much better. I know not everyone is at the same space but what I've learnt through this journey, is to take yout health into your own hands.

I carefully researched lots of information, i asked the big questions....

My way of dealing with brain fog is to play word games on my phone, I started crosswords, I learnt a process of at the end of the day, you track every detail of what you've done. Its difficult at first but the brain is neuroplastic and what you put into those neuropathways they build up again. It's quite intricate but doable.

Be encouraged beautiful friends, you can get better
I'm not a quitter and even in this i refuse to accept the status quo.
I will send a link later for some assistance. Love, hugs and prayers always! 🤗🙏
