Brain Fog

Most of you know- I suffer with Brain Fog. Badly.

Brain Fog affects your ability to think. It can affect your concentration, your ability to use and understand language, your speech, your communication, your memory; it affects your ability to judge distances, your ability to recognise people, places, and even danger.
It can affect your ability to prioritise, to learn and remember new things.
In short- it affects everything in your head. Its scary. It’s shit.

Your brain goes into an almost semi-concious state. It goes ‘foggy’.

I’m always asked how I deal with Brain fog, so here’s my top tips for dealing with brain fog.

1- Write EVERYTHING down!
Keep lists, post it notes, a note pad, and above all a diary with you at all times

2-  Do a list of all things you need to do before you leave the house- like a before-you-leave checklist. I’ve tried it today and I think it helped!

3- Set alarms and reminders on your phone! Especially for meds!

4- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Get people to repeat things to you if need be.

5- Relax, Don’t panic, Don’t Stress, Don’t hit stupid people, Don’t hit people who think it’s funny ( I know its tempting), Don’t forget to breathe! And know that it’ll all be okay in the end…
