For people who don’t understand Brain fog, I will tell you a little about what I have dealt with. Brain fog to me, feels like someone has erased your brain. You can be driving down the street and all of a sudden not know where you are going or where you are, you can be in a conversation and your mind just freezes and the you no longer remember what the conversation is about, If someone give me a name of someone, something I have to write it down or It’s gone in seconds. If it’s not written down I won’t remember. I can be in the process of a project and right in the middle forget what I am doing, it’s in my brain but I can’t seem to retrieve the information.
If I am tired, forget it, I may not remember where I am at or how to get home. So I plan my day around the morning getting my stuff done, because as the day goes on the memory get’s worse and I am home. I try to have my family drive me around so I don’t get lost, I can tell you how scary it is being in a car and not knowing where you are. It’s embarrassing, Forget finding my car in a parking lot. That’s like finding a needle in a hay stack.
If any one else has your story, please share so we can try to understand it better or understand our family or friends invisible illness better.
