What are your tips for debilitating brain fog?

Hello, spoonies! I am slowly emerging from an 11-day infection haze and aside from heightened pain, I’ve finding the cognitive fuzziness to be the worst part. Despite 18 years of chronic illness, it dawned on me that I didn’t have many things in my tool belt for coping with the fog, so I’d love to know yours!

Here are the two I’ve been relying on:

📓 carrying around a notebook because even the smallest thoughts escape me
⏰ setting reminders on my phone for calls, appointments, and even reminding myself to eat!

What about you?
