TELECONFERENCE: Why do I feel so disoriented?
There’s a lot packed into this question. Dealing day in and day out with the stresses of living with an Aspie, and/or raising children on the Spectrum (and other variations on this theme) can leave us not just emotionally drained, but can also affect our mental health.
Do you feel confused? Do you forget things more easily than you used to? Do others think you are always rattled? Are you irritable or prone to cry easily? Are you gaining weight or losing it when you really shouldn’t? Can’t sleep? Prone to accidents? Unexplained aches and pains?
Think about it. Your brain is affected physiologically by chronic stress, no differently than your digestive system, or your heart, or other important body systems. This chronic stress leads to chemical imbalances in the brain, among others disorders. In turn this leads to that feeling of disorientation.
Let’s crack open this tough subject and learn ways to take back your life and get your brain back on line.
