Portrait of Anonymous: Endo Fog
Pain. Not just any pain: intense pain. It strips us of our physical and mental capabilities.
Word finding? Cognitive function? Memory? Throw that all out the proverbial window. Sometimes the only thing a person can remotely focus on is the constant nagging stabbing pain. Nothing but fog and pain.
Pop a prescribed pill for that physical agony and we’re further thrust into a cocoon of sweet, oblivious haze. Further thickened by the soothing medicinal properties of a pill, a tincture, a drag...whatever numbs.
Data: missing. Personality: altered. Memories: gone.
With or without a painkiller, our gray matter is severely affected by the pain and stress this
Brain fog is real.
