NOTE: This post was scheduled for 6:00 a.m. this morning as I knew I would be offline most of the day. However, it failed to post. I do apologize for the lateness. Blogger is glitchy as hell these days. I just got home to check the blog and found that it didn't post. sighhhhh
I’ve got a horrible case of Fried Brain Syndrome. I can make all of the lists I want to. I can set all of the Google calendar alerts I want to. I can have the best intentions in the world. But my brain is simply fried. Has been for a while.
As a result of this condition, there are things I am constantly overlooking. I’ve been behind for quite some time now and it’s not getting any better. As I dig my way out something else arrives that needs to be done. And if it’s one of those things that must be done NOW, then I am SOL and have to stop digging to take care of it.
Does anyone besides me have things they have to do that simply drain them and prevent them from doing anything else? Maybe not physically drain, but mentally drain. Quite often I find myself with the mindset to simply quit and do nothing after certain tasks.
Another thing about Fried Brain Syndrome is that I procrastinate. Yep, I do. My shovel simply snaps and I go do something else that I want to do instead. LOL Fried Brain Syndrome can make a person forget their own name. Yeah, I’ve forgotten my own name a couple of times. I’ve also forgotten the names of my children. They think it’s hilarious when I look at one of them and have their name on the tip of my tongue and can’t get it out. I call them anything but their name. Finally, I’ll say something like: “You…with the blonde hair! Yeah, you know who you are!”
I’m so forgetful that it’s ridiculous.
I’ve been known to try and put things in the refrigerator that don’t belong there. Like… err…shoes. Yeah, shoes. Even a broom. My mind has a way of zoning out when I’m upset. I also zone out when I’m in writing mode. And I wish that happened more often. It doesn’t these days. Fried Brain Syndrome overrides everything it seems.
Have you ever been driving to some place just to find that you passed it? Uh huh. But have you ever passed that destination four times in a row? Yep, I have. It’s pretty bad when you circle the block to get back to your destination just to zone out again before you get there.
No. I’m not crazy. Just stressed. Is it catching?
