This design by Bridget Moore focuses on those with chronic conditions and how the treatment for those conditions can often muddle and fog the person’s brain. It is often a balance between feeling pain and being clear-headed or treating the pain but being in a constant brain fog. For those that are trying to accomplish things during the day, people often have to endure intense pain in order to achieve the productivity they want. Striking this balance can be physically and emotionally exhausting. The Founder of Stand Up Speak Up, Karla Stephens, is particularly close to this issue, as she struggles through Stage 4 cancer treatment and balancing “chemo-brain” with her inspiring social justice work.

While we are talking more about respecting everyone’s mental and physical health needs, there is still a stigma surrounding taking medication, which can make it even more difficult for those living with any sort of chronic condition. Some people believe that consistently taking medication is a sign of weakness, when the truth is that getting onto the right health plan for you is usually a grelling process that takes a lot of mental and physical strength.

One recommendation for dealing with brain fog is to take detailed notes or create an organization system that helps keep your life moving in the direction you want, regardless of how hazy you might feel on a particular day. This may be setting a specific time to return phone calls each day, or a specific day and hour for grocery shopping, among other tasks. (Practical Pain Management)
