Brain fog, foggy head is often described as:

  • Your head, mind, and brain feel foggy or like in a fog.
  • It feels like you have a foggy head, foggy mind.
  • You have difficulty thinking, concentrating, and/or forming thoughts.
  • Your thinking feels like it is muddled and impaired.
  • Some people describe this symptom as being “foggy-headed” or having a “foggy head.”
  • It seems as if your thoughts are illusive, and things that you once knew seem hard to comprehend or recall.
  • It feels like your short-term memory isn’t as good as it used to be.
  • It feels like normal intellectual tasks seem much more difficult.
  • You find it hard to focus and concentrate.
  • You are more forgetful (forget things that you normally wouldn’t).
  • You have difficulty focusing on and carrying on conversations.
  • Your thoughts seem like in a cloud.
  • Your thinking isn’t as clear as it normally is.
  • Your head feels foggy, clouded, muddled, and 'off.'

This from "anxietycentre.com". Most of those descriptions sound the same. Brain fog is also associated with pms, which is what I'm dealing with right now. I have several final essays due yesterday and later this week but I can't bring myself to think, or do anything that involves thinking. When I get like this it's all I can do to stay still and quiet. Everything feels confusing and too much.

I've been listening to podcasts nonstop, and I just ran out today, which makes me feel panicked. As weird as it sounds, they keep me company. Misanthropic though I can be sometimes I need to hear a human voice.

On the plus side, I figured out how to do braid outs and twist outs, so I feel less ugly. And my glossier order should finally be coming in on Monday, so I have that to look forward to. I'm more looking forward to the wait being over than getting the actual products. I've been obsessively checking the tracking page for what feels like forever, it makes me anxious to think about.
