I’m not writing it down to remember it later…
I love this quote so very much!
I’m not writing it down to remember it later, I’m writing it down to remember it now.
As a result of experiencing lupus fog, information often feels like it simply drains out of my brain regardless of how hard I try to retain it, and to compensate I semi-obsessively write things down, and record voice notes, and use tools such as Evernote to capture and store longterm memories. For that reason, the idea of writing something down to remember it now makes perfect sense to me.
To anyone else with a fog-like condition (for example, people with fibromyalgia often talk about ‘fibro fog’) who stumbles on this post, how do you fight the effects of your fog? Please share in the comments section below.
