Apart from your brain not working, anything in your personal life, self esteem, relationships with friends/family , drugs/alcohol , work, housing ?
Need more info?
Im exactly the same.
I think about a problem..then obsess over it…then become worried about it…convince myself that everythings wrong.
Your just worked up.
You need to stop, and relax.
There is nothing wrong with you.
You just need to understand that your brain is a remarkable thing.
As PheeGee said you should make a chart or keep a diary of some description.
I forget everything.
Dates, news etc.
So i keep a little diary with me 24/7 that reminds me of everything i need to know.
you know guys, there comes a point in time when, after you’re 86 or so, you just gotta “throw in the towel”, so to speak. Just move your oxygen tank close to your bed, and just enjoy the times when the grandchildren call.
good advice MynameisBeth, I think your right that he/she could be worked up over something, or just worked up in general, but what if your like me and when u do relax something wells up inside and makes you feel worse than you ever have (I wrote a post about that myself a couple weeks back)
Life isn’t easy…adds a lot of surprises…so no one can safely assume they know it all…or have learned it all..
but life does give you choices…and over time you learn what choices to not do again..and waht choices really matter…
I’m amazed sometimes at how unpersuasive I am. I just got off the phone with someone who owes me $6000 and a five part Television series, and I feel like such a little *****.
The golden rule of life is “Work hard and be nice to people” isn’t it? Well… I can’t work.. I just can’t. And I’m nice to people, and they take advantage of me… I think I’m going to commit suicide.
well youre brain works justfine id you can still write) “I don’t know what to do now”. really. whatever you do, dont aks others what they think you should know. anything in life that you like and you re interested in, is worthy of your braincells. dont put pressure on yourself.
See… people always say things like this. I don’t think that there’s any good reason to ask other people what I should do next.
As for my brain working… well, it can speak and write well, but there are things that are pretty **** wrong with it.
Your not nice to people…your a giver…which is completely seperate…
You think that constantly giving to people is healthy and being nice…
That is so untrue and unhealthy…
If you just constantly give…of course people are gonna take advantage of it..So the key is to balance give and take…if someone takes too much then you stop giving to them..till they return the favor…

My brain is officially done for until I get back on my medication. When I was on the meds, I couldn’t stop obsessing about the same things over and over for weeks on end, I finally became inspired and wanted to go out and do more, but the energy and money for these things just wasn’t there. I can’t tell if the meds were messing with my brain and giving me false hope of happiness or just mellowing me out. I tend to over analyze things to much and have trouble relaxing, im always in a hurry. I spent 2.5 years of my life unemployed and sleeping all day from these medications, when I learned to adjust to them i felt a sense of loss from those 2.5 years in which I did and had nothing for myself. Now I have trouble letting just one day go by without living it out to the fullest. I push myself at everything I do. I don’t feel like I have a sense of balance in my life and my brain is mad at me. When I do find balance between work and play, I feel trapped. Maybe because I work in a cubicle? Im really more of a creative type. Any Advise?
Im 23 years old and feel the same as “anonymous”. Each individual knows his/her own body. They can tell if somethign is not right, even if they have never experienced “right”! You can tell by what others are able to do and be.
While some of it is a confidence issue with me… Ultimately, when it comes down to it… my BRAIN is lacking something. Its like the signals dont go smoothly to and fro. Sure, I am able to read and write fine. I can recall, i can remember. I can talk. I can date. I can work. Shoot, ive gone through a vigurous Fire Academy and EMT school. Passed all the tests. Done fine. Ive gotten the highest in the class, but dont **** tell me that things are good and fine and dandy “you can read and write, things must be good.” This is something that is very serious and plaguing ever day im alive. It is part of all that i am. But you know, I refuse to allow it to run and rule my life. Im a sensitive person, I am a giving person. I have been often imbalanced in my life but something i am so glad I learned, Life is about perspective and we choose that. Life is also about balance and love. I guess the best way to put my issue is… I lack the ability to think ahead. I lack the forethought. No matter how hard i try to think ahead of what im saying,or doing. i cant. ive tried writing it down. Doing the diary. - disaster. Doesnt work for me.
All of this for example is just coming out as i type. I dont know what it is. I have to hide it from people because NO ONE UNDERSTANDS. I HAVE TALKED TO NERUOPSYCOLOGIST. IVE TALKED TO BRAIN DRS. They run a 5 minute function test and say.. hey, your young 23 years old… youll be fine. Well, when such an issue is plaguing people to the point of wanting to end it all, (theres a problem.) And that problem does NOT have to be depression or emotional imbalance, just pure agitation and inability. Thats it. Thats all it has to be. Let me say,I have been trying to figure this out since i was 14. I am a strong christian who believes in renewing our mind on positive things and that has brought me great overcomings. I will continue to do so. I believe in healing. I believe in Drs. I also believe that we face certain obsticles and issues in life that we may never overcome but the key is to NEVER GIVE UP, AND NEVER STOP STRIVING. I WILL STRIVE FOR AN ANSWER-UNTIL I AM NOTHING MORE!
Ps. I am a good looking guy that many females dig. But, I would trade my looks for ability ANYDAY! With all this said, I truly am content in life… lol despite my willingness to trade. I also with this thorn… have a blessing, humility!
Sounds like you have early signs of multiple sclerosis, CFS or lyme disease. All of those can make your brain malfunction so severly you can’t do a thing.
You gotta drink more milk more calcium and eat healthier things, it’ll boost your brain power and your brain will work alot better
I am experiencing the same stuff. cant speak right, cant think, cant retrieve information from my brain that I know I know I just cant access it, it seems. So I was tested for MS, Lyme disease-don’t have them and I have fibromyalgia; they say fibro can cause what’s called brain fog. I believe it is a mix of stress, PTSD, being mentally abused as a child and then by my now ex-husband for 15 years, depression, and fibromyalgia. This condition is embarrassing and scary. I wonder if I will ever recover from this and how bad I will get. It has progressively gotten worse over the past 18 years, slowly but surely. Meditation and yoga has helped and of course trying to stay away from stressful people/situations that trigger my PTSD. It sucks, sorry to say. Take magnesium and a b complex to help over all well being. Drink plenty of water.
