I noticed a long time ago that my thoughts are really fast. Like I’ll be having a conversation about breakfast and suddenly I’m talking about the hurricane hitting Louisiana. In my thoughts I went from breakfast to coffee to the awesome coffee I had in Cancun to Cancun being in recovery while I was there after a hurricane hit to current events of the hurricane hitting Louisiana. It all seems logical to me, but it’s very confusing to others.
Also, I realize I have to slow down my thoughts to put them into words. It’s like I feel and see my thoughts in flashes and then have to translate them to words. I lose so many thoughts trying to articulate them and I can’t write fast enough. I’m newly diagnosed so I’m still experimenting with medication.
If I need to super focus in a day I drink Redbull. It’s like it either slows down my brain or speeds up my processing so they’re on mostly equal levels. It’s like Redbull induced tunnel vision. Yeah kinda like that. No question. Just sharing my experience.
