I have quarantine brain

I cannot focus. I have been working on something for 2 days and I can't comprehend it. I don't think I can complete a thought or process new information. I don't seem to be able to accomplish anything, just endless waiting.

Re: I have quarantine brain

I'm so sorry. It has been eight weeks for you, hasn't it?

How locked down are you? Are you able to get fresh air and sunshine in any way?

Re: I have quarantine brain

I can go out to the local parks. I run and walk outside every day, work in the garden, etc. I just cannot focus on things that need to be processed. It's near impossible to read a book or listen to a podcast.

I have to wait on permission for virtual summer planning because tight budgets.

And I can't make any plans for the fall because I don't know what will happen; my programming is at the end of the domino run.

So, I just kill time and a few brain cells.

Re: I have quarantine brain

I feel as if I'm losing IQ points due to a lack of mental stimulation. I'm frequently forgetting things & feel as if my social skills have atrophied.
