    Hello,

    I also have brain fog. I have seizures and the medicine causes my brain fog. I have no seizures while taking the medicine...so I will have to live with brain fog for the rest of my life.

    I can't imagine how hard it is for you because the doctors have not figured out what is causing it.

    Did the brain fog happen suddenly...or did you always have the brain fog?

    I hope you don't think about ending your life. You may just need a new doctor.

    Meanwhile...I have adjusted my life by making my life easier.

    I keep a routine! I get confused if I see too many things laying around my house. So I threw things away or gave the away. There is less things for me to see and that helps me not to be as confused.

    I have a friend that comes over to my house once a week. She helps me with mail or things that I cannot understand. Maybe someone can help you with the hard brain things in life. Do you have family or a friend that can do this for you?

    Because I can get confused and not know where I am at when I drive, I limit the places that I do go. I wait for a friend to go with me if it is somewhere far. It does limit where I can go. I live close to a store. So I go to the same store. I get the same items mostly.

    It is hard...but maybe you could try a routine. My brain can't break things down. So I pick a day to do laundry. I pick a day to go to the store. I pick a day to pay bills. I never try to do many things in one day. That gets me too confused.

    As time went on and I did the things to accommodate my brain fog, I was less stressed. That allowed times that were good. I schedule days that I do not have to do anything. Some days I can get on a computer and type ...some days it's too hard.

    I have one day a week that is scheduled with my friend. So no matter how hard my week is, I know that I will get to have a day coming that week that will be good.

    I don't know if these things will help. I had a friend help me break things down and organize things in my house so I could do a better job. I hope that you have someone in your life that could help you. I really hope you don't give up too soon. I am much happier now that things are set up to make it easier.

    Hello

    I read how disconnected and lonely it must feel for you so wanted to send you a reply. Im no where near your age being much older with 3 adult age children! Anyway Im wondering given your symptoms have any of the Doctors youve seen checked your hormone levels?

    Also I cant recommend regular physical activity enough as it really helps with focus and gets you out! Yoga classes which include meditation are excellent! They have helped me enormously when Ive battled dibilitating symptons from depressive episodes! And you must keep seeking help and support
