Despite the term used to describe this collective set of symptoms, brainfog can be personally devastating. It is easy to become distracted, embarrassed, or isolated. We fear others will take our memory lapses personally, especially if it is a name or an outing we planned. But it’s important to be easy on ourselves when we experience mental fogginess, because sending negative information to our already foggy brain perpetuates the problem even further.
