Re: Mental fatigue or being lazy
I very frequently have brain fog and an accompanied feeling of sluggishness. When so, my motivation and drive is shut off. When the brainfog disperses and I regain mental clarity my motivation automatically returns and I feel like reading and doing a lot of things again. When brainfog I don't feel like doing anything and usually just zombie away on forums and such. My concentration is reduced by a lot as well, posts i write are messier etc.
So for me it's very dependent on the state of mind. It's not something I can sleep off or exercise away (I don't feel better after exercise and I don't feel better the next day or after a nap). I'm not sure what causes it, but I think how well my stomach is doing is tied to it, at least. I have difficulty digesting solid foods. I was very mentally clear for about a week, then I ate pizza and have been kinda mentally wrecked for 4-5 days.
Being autistic might predispose me for brainfog problems
Oh, and caffeine usually makes it worse when I already have brainfog. Caffeine is neutral when I'm more clear.
Other than that, it is possible to get tired from doing things that require a lot of concentration. When so just resting and relaxing helps for me
Iíll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my homeworld that Truth is a matter of the imagination. The soundest fact may fail or prevail in the style of its telling: like that singular organic jewel of our seas, which grows brighter as one woman wears it and, worn by another, dulls and goes to dust.
