From time to time, all of us suffer from a condition known as brain fog. It is a condition wherein our brains just shut down for some time and we lose all concentration and focus on the tasks at hand.
Moreover, this condition is most commonly associated with Complex PTSD and has symptoms such as memory lapses, feeling cloudy mentally, and having a hard time concentrating.
But, this problem is often overlooked by sufferers of Complex PTSD and they think that it is just some normal phenomenon happening in their lives. But, there is much more to it than normal.
Says therapist Linda Meredith on brain fog,
Experiencing brain fog is a common but often overlooked aspect of living with Complex PTSD. Understanding this symptom is important in the recovery journey.
Symptoms of brain fog about which all of us should be aware
Let’s now take a closer look at how brain fog affects our thinking and what are the common symptoms.
Firstly, brain fog often leads to a loss in the train of thought and makes us feel completely lost sometimes. This then leads to cloudiness of the brain and we may remain clueless about everything.
Affected decision making
Furthermore, it also affects our decision-making capacity and we start thinking that whatever we do, we will surely fail in accomplishing the task. This makes our thinking very toxic.
Being exhausted and fatigued
Even after having enough rest, our bodies and brains feel completely exhausted and fatigued leading us to work less every day.
Need more time to complete tasks
Because of remaining clueless throughout the day, we will often take more time than others to finish our daily tasks which are otherwise quite simple to do.
Forgetting commitments and having a loss of words
Lastly, brain fog makes us forget important deadlines and we may often falter with our speech as well. This is a very common sign of this condition.
Thus, these are the signs and symptoms of brain fog that we should be aware of. Don’t let this problem win the battle against you. You have to fight this problem and gain victory over it.
