I can totally relate to being unable to concentrate and actually do things, ten months on and I still feel my brain is struggling on this point!
Life is so quick and expects us to be able to keep up doesn’t it? Mean while our minds and body just want to curl up and sob/remember/recall.
I’ve decided not to beat myself up for having to check details, plan a route, check my diary for what feels like the 10th time! I’m excepting that I have to give myself more time to do these types of things and slow down when I can, learning to meditate has been a very powerful insight into this.
I thought this was a really interesting point from Julia (and great advice on not beating yourself up). I’ve made this into it’s own conversation so that people can discuss it further here if they want.
Problems with memory and concentration seem to be a common part of grief - has anyone else had the same feeling that their brain is in a fog?
