I usually stagnate when problems don’t shift, change or move on. As long as others are straight with me I can deal with anything.
My mind tends to go into confusion when I know that what I’m being told isn’t what my intuition tells me. My brain fog can last anything from one hour to all day, depending on other people of course.
Yesterday I couldn’t think clearly, was acutely restless and found it difficult to concentrate. My head felt like it was in a vice. I tend to know why I get brain fog, so for me that’s half the battle.
The symptoms below are usually what I deal with. If these are your symptoms too, the chances are you are dealing with brain fog.
- Your attention span decreases;
- You lose concentration of your thoughts;
- You feel tired;
- You lose your appetite;
- You become more fearful and worry more about things you wouldn’t worry about at all;
- You feel detached from yourself and from your realities;
- You can’t think clearly;
- You become restless.
I usually come out of it when something becomes obvious and I can see a way forward on my problems. It’s only often at that point that I begin to feel normal again.
