Brain fog, you know what I mean. When you forget something you just read about a second ago or you can’t remember where you put your car keys. Sometimes you can’t remember something that happened a minute ago and you attribute that to maybe a caffeine deficiency. Are You Sure It’s Only Brain Fog And Not Adult ADHD?It can be frustrating and sometimes can be bad news for anyone that is coming upon a deadline. Like an important report at the office or a term paper at school. Brain Fog is a perfect name for this condition because it really does feel like there is nothing but cloudiness in your brain when trying to think. When my brain fog sets in, completing even the smallest task such as writing a grocery list or shooting off an email can be very difficult. My brain fog makes it difficult for me to think quickly, terrible memory recall and in sometimes I have a hard time coming up with the proper words in a conversation. Some people, and me included. Have spaced out feelings and mentally slow. Do you have the same symptoms as I have listed below?
-Speaking. Short choppy sentences because I can’t come up with the proper words.
-Writing. As in trying to write an email filled with short choppy non descriptive sentences
-Concentration problems. There’s that brain fog again
-Decreased productivity. Just too tired
-Decision-making. Can’t make up my mind up the smallest of decisions
-Disorganized thinking. Scatter brained, I’m like all over the place
-Drowsiness. Can’t get enough sleep.
-Impaired cognition. Can’t seem to make head or tails of anything
-Lethargic. Almost kind of dopey
-I was experiencing all of these symptoms, actually even more.

So what can cause such a temporary loss of your cognitive reasoning. The culprit to brain fog can be a physical, emotional, and biochemical factors. Fatigue seems to be the most common rational explanation. The brain craves a high amount of energy and rest in order to function properly. When an individual is too tired, the brain can suffer and brain fog can set in.
Now why am I telling you all this? Well I’m telling you this because what if it’s more than just brain fog or his more cruder cousin brain fart. Well, a friend of mine suggested that it may be adult ADHD. I thought he was off base there but later on that evening I really thought about what he said. After all, when I was a kid I had the exact symptoms as I do today. Reading was a problem as was my concentration and all the other problems I listed above. I’m telling you it was a problem for me and I was lagging behind all the other kids. As a matter of fact, when I finally reached High School. I quit school blaming it on other reasons like I can’t be bothered or it’s not that important when in fact I just couldn’t handle these symptoms and no one cared enough or noticed what I was going through. Maybe because we weren’t aware of these conditions back then. Was it just a coincidence? It kept nagging at me and I came to the realization that maybe I did in fact be slightly touched with ADHD and it carried over into my adulthood.
Now I haven’t seen my Dr about this so I haven’t been officially diagnosed with ADHD but I feel that I have turned the corner and I feel a million times better then say a couple of months ago. I have done some research online on this subject and was reading something about a herbal formula that really seems to work on my symptoms. My concentration is better cognitive reasoning is better and I actually have a deep restfull sleep. I even dream every night because of my ability to get a “deep” restful slumber. I left a link or two in case you might be interested. Is there a herbal alternative to you or your child’s ADHD symptoms There most definitely is!
A little sidebar I took a course for High School subjects studied my arse off took a High School equivalency test and voila. I am now a High School Graduate
