So I’ve been writing a number of posts recently, however it’s not that I’ve got writers block more that I’ve got too many thoughts that I can’t actually finish one off. I’ve not been out in pretty much 2 weeks which is one of the posts I’ve got in the pipelines, but it seems that I’ve got brain fog and my brain just can’t concentrate for long enough to finish a post. OK that’s almost not true in that I’m writing a post now, but this one also has taken a while to finish. It just seems that my brain doesn’t want to let me finish anything off. I’m having what can only be described as an ADD (definitely not hyperactive so no H), Brain Fog, spaced out, off the planet sort of time.
I am picking up my book and reading a few pages and not being able to focus any more. I’m doing a craft project and finding that after a short time my brain is off on some sort of weird procrastination and I’m on my phone buying something that I thought about weeks ago, or just day dreaming and realising that I’ve not done anything for ages. Now one of the worst things about this spell is that I am struggling to focus on what people are saying. Mum will say something to me, then my brain kicks in, then I think about what she’s said, then finally after a few minutes I will actually answer what she’s said…………or I would except sometimes then brain fog itself will kick in and I will forget what she’s said all together, or what I wanted to answer and so I then don’t say anything at all. It’s all very frustrating.
I’m hoping that maybe once I’ve been out again into the world I might snap out of it. Or I might possibly go for a while and simply snap out of it just doing whatever I am doing. But I hope that it happens soon and that I can again concentrate on doing the things that I want to do, for at least as long as my conditions will allow!!
So I was trying to think of some photo’s that I could show you, to illustrate this and came up with…………….Some of my works in progress…..
and my sofa……
This is what I have all the time near me, I have things to hand so that I don’t have to ask for them!!
I also realised that I’ve not introduced someone to you properly, that’s my lovely new logo. She needs a name, so if you can think of something then please comment below and let me know. This is my new logo…..
It’s a zebra because EDS is known as a zebra condition, she’s falling asleep because (obviously from the name of my blog) I suffer with insomnia so am always tired. I wanted something bright hence the lovely colours and because of all my crafty endeavours she’s knitting. A friend of mine designed her for me, at some stage in the future I am going to create a crafty knitted version of her, but I’m in love. She’s just what I wanted but couldn’t do myself.
What do you think? Do you like her? What do you think you’d call her? On the other side of this post, have you ever had weeks like mine where you can’t settle? What did you do cure yourself, or did you ride it out? Let me know because as always I’d love to hear from you. Hopefully this fog will soon pass and I’ll be able to share with you some of the 8 or so posts I’ve had ideas for!!
