When I get a cold, it makes my scrambled brain even worse. I go from "barely able to work" to "totally unable", and I can't process conversations, not even on Facebook where they're written down and saved. Sore throats are the same or worse.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that when my brain was healthy. It's very annoying to be totally knocked out by minor illnesses which should be a small inconvenience.
Is it the same for any of you? And does anything help?
