For anyone that saw the introduction, my name is Rejel, and i have been a long-time sufferer of brainfog. I have signed up to this forum in a last stand to see if i can fix this, as i am getting tired of letting every day pass where i have to tirelessly fill my head with distractions because brainfog has made it so its impossible to do anything constructive, when that is all i want to do.. For any brain-fog sufferers that are long-term, you can relate to my struggle of actually explaining these symptoms, as they are so normal in your life you can no longer identify what is wrong since you forget what "normal" is, you just know you don't feel how you are supposed too. I am also here in hopefully achieving the goal of managing to help somebody else suffering as much as i have.. so that they could take the advice or steps to fix that hopefully are posted here.
I experience anhedonia also, which i currently relate to having masturbated for several years. Having said this, before going any further, i believe it is important to know that a parent figure of mine suffers from bipolar. To make this more readable i will compile a list of DAILY symptoms below, followed by weekly/irregular if i can think of any. I am prone to miss some information out also. I will also list what i have tried and to what degree i have tried them.
Feeling detached from reality
Like i don't know where my knowledge comes from
Like i don't understand what i look at, although somehow i know
Memory loss (can forget a few hours ago)
Issue recalling basic things
As if im drained from blood (causes me to collapse on the bed) (NOT ALWAYS)
What have i tried?
Persistent Sleeping Schedule (still keep it)
Only eat when i need to eat (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
Meditation (didn't try this for long)
Stopping Masturbation (did this for 3 months at some point and am not remembering a change)
Eating things with no gluten in (this is recent)
Ensuring i keep low stress levels (had high stress due to anxiety previously)
Not over-working my brain by occupying it with low-level tasks and activities (games, etc.)
And with all this, i sit here and don't feel any different. I'd love if anyone was able to help me or diagnose me, i am open to giving more information, i just don't want to clutter this post with potentially unnecessary information. Thank you.
