Life In The Fog

Foggy mind, what is and what helps it?

 

Foggy mind:  Here is what it means to me at various times, and in varying degrees.

 

Pressure on my forehead under my eyebrows.

A swirling feeling.

It makes it hard to feel like making decisions.

I feel like I can't think, but yet I can remember things and can learn for academics..

I feel like staring straight off into space looking at nothing.

A spinning feeling.

It makes me feel anxious.

 

What helps:

 

Sometimes a nap.

Sometimes more activity.

Eating.

Drinking coconut water.

 

I think this is with drawl from buckwheat symptoms.

 

Any more tips, or descriptions,

I just can't seem to cut the fog.

 

Diana

You pretty much described me in a nutshell. I might add that it happens so rapidly...sometimes mid-conversation with someone. And YOU realize immediately what is happening, knowing the other person can not understand why you have all of a sudden "zoned out" and are not able to complete a sentence. I have no advice though. I generally have to sit/lay down until it subsides...

The fog lifted, yesterday, in the afternoon as I was potting seeds.  But I am not implying this is a treatment.  Until the next time, it is gone.

I got my 1st soy fog this week. Pretty similar to a gluten one for me.

I lose the sense of ever being able to achieve anything in the future.

I feel like something is pushing me back on my chest.

I stare blankly at walls. Daytime tv is as much as I can handle. Even that seems taxing sometimes.

I can't file or organise. Bills pile up even if I can afford them.

My good news is that this only happens a couple of days a month, when testing foods for reintroduction and finding a no. Previously I lived months at a time like this. I am taking back my life, and doing things I thought were gone forever.

If I can just convince myself I have to wait it out when it strikes it would be even better.

Diana, glad you have come through.

I might tell my husband I need time in the greenhouse next time :)
