hezzer, When I get severe brainfog, sometimes brought on by activity, I can feel kind of drunk, too.
saxmar, I also get disorientation and forgetfulness. You really hit the nail on head when you said you want to tell people "I don't feel like I'm here right now." I don't think that's weird or vague because I feel the same way when I'm in a confusional state.
I have come to accept that mult-tasking is truly impossible, and trying it will lead to feeling very confused, and heavy-headed like my brain is full of cob webs. I also have trouble recalling certain words, and I'm often saying the wrong word, pausing mid-sentence, and sometimes coming out with a sound rather than a word.
I used to be a very well-spoken individual, but I have lost that. Writing used to be so easy, but now I struggle. Brainfog sucks!!
