yeah it is called Executive Control when you are tasked with something and your brain organizes and plans a task, breaks it down into subtasks, motivates you to focus on the task at hand, and then you implement the strategy with feedback.
These types of diseases dramatically reduce or diminish our Executive Control abilities. By definition parasites compromise their host to prevent them from getting better. Now I have actually seen people with Lyme or other parasites so compromised they refuse to admit they are ill, on top of the gas lighting from their peers and doctors, don't get treatment -- and they are oblivious to any direct or indirect evidence to the contrary no matter what. I believe this is actually part of the survival mechanism of the parasite itself.... that has never been studied.
what happened to me things got so bad I had to go into this mode: I planned ONE thing a day.. and ONE thing only per day. I wanted to do many things, but I told myself... if I can just do ONE thing, then don't worry about
anything else. Because worrying about
other things actually caused me to be more frustrated. Sometimes the one thing was to just rest for the day.
Just believe that one day it will lift. It is not permanent.
Basically I lost all my abilities -- physical and mental, except my spirit. My Spirit was the only thing I had left. Eventually I couldn't get out of my chair for times for a few days. I stopped eating. Every once and a while I would get slightly better and somehow managed to do shopping, once a month. I only left the house in the beginning of the month and it took all my energy and a week of rest to recover.
When I couldn't get out of my chair for 3 days and I stopped eating, I discovered I felt better. I told a friend of mine and he said that was in the Bible. I didn't know much about
it and I had tried everything else (this was the period of 18 months of antibiotics before they started working) ... and I could not read right (everything was blurry and I couldn't focus), so I just fasted for 3 days and squeezed the bible in my hand while in my chair. I'm not sure if religion is a thing, but just squeezing the bible gave me the strength to go through this. I'm not sure exactly how it works, some would say it summoned Holy Spirit: but it gave me hope and I KNEW I would get better and I DID. It just took time. Also the Book of Job, I must have read it 8 times.
But there are scientific and medical reasons fasting can improve health. Some have said fasting has cured them all together. You could give it a try.
Starting a journal. Write down what you are grateful for. What your feelings are. Any symptoms with the date.
Eventually I wrote down tasks I wanted to do ("Executive Control") and "10 steps" to do them, and it would be a checklist. I could tackle things. I finished the Bible and realize all these people gas lighting me are compromised by some kind of strange evil spirit.. but that's a different topic.
