Have you ever noticed how your brain works differently with varying levels of pain during a migraine? Most mornings, I feel as if my brain is a wonky computer with an unstable virus, and I have to figure out what is going on with it today. Sometimes as my pain level increases during the day, I can actually feel my intelligence dropping to a lower wattage.
Here are some of the variations for my Migraine Brain Works
Full Fledge Shut Down-I can’t even think. This is the face in the pillow type of day where I don’t even know what day of week it is.
The Zone Out-This is where I find myself staring at something like my computer screen at work and I have no idea what I’m doing or how long I’ve been sitting there staring at my screen.
Scatterbrained-I feel as if I have severe ADD. I have to check to see if I put my bra on in the morning or I might put on deodorant twice because I’m so distracted that I cannot remember doing it the first time.
The Substitution-I find myself saying words wrong. I say “Bed and Bath” instead of “Blockbuster Video.” I also have a problem with typos and spelling errors if I'm trying to write something.
No Short Term Memory-I have trouble learning something new at work, but doing something I’ve done for ages isn’t a problem at all.
Forget Me Not-I’m plagued all day by the feeling that I’m forgetting something important. This is tied into the scatterbrained type of day.
Do you have any different types of Migraine Brain Works?
