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.
