When loss strikes, it hits your whole person, including your mind. Mental fog, forgetfulness, and confusion are common. This can be unnerving, and scary.
From the Grieving Heart:
I feel confused today.
One minute I’m sad, and the next I’m angry. I zone out and find myself staring at the walls. Everything seems strange, like I’m in some alternate reality that looks a lot like my old life. Except that you’re not here.
My life is not the same at all. Everything feels different now.
Then the sadness returns. Or maybe it never left. Perhaps sadness is more like a cloud that follows me throughout the day.
My emotions are all over the place, and I’m getting less able to manage and hide them. I feel unstable. I’m not acting like myself. I feel different.
