does anyone get really bad brain fog when your anxiety is spiking? like my anxiety will spike for a couple of weeks where it's just awful, and I feel like I have bad brain fog. is that normal?

      @FS_cookielove it’s so hard to describe to someone that says “man up” I literally run out of tears sometimes

      Thank you all for the reassurance! Sometimes I just get too in my head about stuff and think its something worse then it actually is 😕

      It’s normal for me too! I feel very fuzzy and when it’s over I can’t really remember what I did in that state

      It is normal it’s like being trapped in a glass bubble or looking through someone else’s eyes and not being in control

        @Ja80 also, I really like that analogy too! It really can feel like beimg trapped in bubble or looking through someone else's eyes

          @carter._.16 that’s the only way I can describe it from my own experience

        @Ja80 I like that, I usually say drunk you can think clearly and move but it doesn't seem to connect or function properly and you can forget things the next day

      It’s not ‘normal’ but it’s common. I relate :) so you’re not alone there!
