Brain Fog

I can do the administrative tasks and grade but nothing more complex than that. Even reading isn’t happening. I’ve been trying to read a gossipy novel about rich people in Spain. I usually love this stuff and can fly through a whole book in a day. But now I have to repeat every sentence at least twice in my head to understand it.

I feared this after COVID (remember people talking about the COVID brain fog and the reduction in cognitive ability as a result of infection?). But COVID had no effect. It’s the war fog that got to me.

I’m still undefeated in the Spanish Wordle but lost in English Wordle twice, on the first day of war and on the day when the bombing of Kharkiv began. I know it’s pathetic to care about Wordle but if I don’t have my cognitive function, what do I have? My great people skills? Obviously, not.

  1. Sometimes I’m sharp, sometimes I’m nowhere ..usually because I’m tired. The modern world is a distracting place. I’m reading a good book about just this thing called STOLEN FOCUS by Johann Hari…take care πŸ‘πŸ‘β˜•β˜•β˜•

    1. I appreciate the people who donate to refugees but I’m donating to the Ukrainian army and encouraging everybody I know to do the same. N also donated to the legal fund for Russian protesters. He wants to believe in good Russians, and I don’t blame him.


  2. I think it would be a really bad sign if you were completely focused and clear-headed right now. There’s a reason why your bosses were offering you leave time and whatnot. Your brain will come back, but you have a lot of stuff to process right now.
