Mental fog can be disorienting, upsetting, and even terrifying. When you experience it on a regular basis, it can also cripple your self-esteem. Being unable to access words, ideas, and thoughts that used to come to you easily can make you feel demeaned and unintelligent.
There are many reasons why a person may experience mental fog. Poor nutrition or hydration, for example, can cause feelings of mental confusion. Other mental illnesses, like depression, can also result in similar “foggy” thinking. Trauma can also contribute to feelings of mental confusion. When a healthy brain is confronted with extreme stress, some changes take place; for example, the parts of the brain that control rational thought, learning, and memory may temporarily shut off, giving control over to the amygdala, which helps assess danger. These are evolutionary tools developed to help humans survive in a dangerous world, but when a person develops PTSD, some of these natural responses become confused.
