I was due to write up a recipe post today for my roasted sweet potato ‘discs’ with garlic cod and healthy salad, but from the moment I woke up I’ve had this horrible brain fog, which makes me want to climb back into my bed and fall asleep till it goes.
[couldn't find a picture of 'brain fog' so drew my own - which helped!]
I’ve been experiencing it since monday morning and I don’t know whether I inadvertently ate something containing gluten when I went for a pub lunch with my mum and sister for mothers day? The only thing I could eat on the menu was mushroom soup or a bowl of baby potatoes. I obviously ate the soup [which I might add was the nicest soup I’ve ever tasted] but when I came back home, that’s when I felt as though I’d just been ‘glutened’ and even though the stomach pains and usual symptoms have gone [thank God!], I’ve still got this flipping brain fog!
Usually I’d put this down to my depression rearing it’s ugly head again. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for a long time and I usually have it under control by doing things to distract me, keeping myself busy with my blog, tablets and so forth. However, today I’ve tried my hardest to come out of it, even having a strong cup of coffee but all that’s done is made me feel really anxious.
So the reason I’m blogging this blog post about ‘Brain Fog’ is to get myself out of this ‘Foggy Funk’ [quite like it being called that!] and also ask all the fabulous coeliac’s out there what they do when they get the Foggy Funk?!
