I found a blog post with some great descriptions of brain fog and how it can affect those of us who have it. Click on the link title to read Sarah’s stories:
I can relate to so many of the descriptions, having had very similar experiences for years…
And I am so very glad that I can now make my daily (fair trade, organic) coffee and do other slightly more complex things without needing to exhaust myself using all my (still limited) energy and effort to remain mindful focusing on whatever task is on hand. (The ability to hold more than one thought in my mind and do two things at once again has created new challenges, but that’s another story)
Fun times, not… even though they can make some funny stories when we feel better!
Neuroscience is a fascinating and fairly recent area of study. For those of you who wish to learn more, I have discovered this helpful resource. Brain Facts dot org has a free primer download on the brain and nervous system (see below).
Too many of us are currently in possession of brains and nervous systems that are more or less immediately and adversely affected from exposures to toxic chemicals, some molds, wireless and other environmental contaminants.
As one of these people, I have been fascinated by the changes that occur in my brain at times, (despite the fact that most of the changes are highly disruptive and disabling instead of pleasant) and so I am really trying to learn more about these processes and what might be happening.
