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.
