When I try to explain whatever dumb thing I’ve just done is due to brain fog I feel like I’m giving an excuse. The truth is though it’s a real thing. It’s not some excuse I’m giving to get out of looking like an idiot. I may truly be an idiot, the jury’s still out on that, but it’s not all my fault. My family and friends get a chuckle out of it and I do too most of the time. It does get old though. I get tired of being the one who forgets what I was just saying mid-sentence or the one who has to search for the right word instead of just knowing it. I don’t want to admit how many times I’ve walked into a room and had no idea why I was there.
There is no clear cause or treatment for brain fog but here are some things that are supposed to help.
- Reduce Stress
- Increase the amount of daily exercise.
- Supplements can help. Vitamin B12, D, and Omega 3 are listed as some of the best.
- Get Organized
AS has taught me to find humor in things. It’s hard sometimes but it helps to laugh because I can’t stand the alternative.
