It’s been a strange day. One of those days where everything feels, disconnected. It’s where you look at someone and say nothing, think nothing. Walk into a room and just stand there. Disconnected and I really don’t know how else to describe it. It’s as if I’m having some weird outer body experience. My grandmother used to call it being in a “funk” and I guess she could be right. But I always thought of a funk as a week-long (or more) stretch of just being out of sorts. A friend refers to these days as having “brain fog.” I feel like this is something a bit more. It’s brain fog meets not seeing anything in front of you even though your eyes are wide open. Hearing is diminished, too. You hear what you want and everything else is just magically tuned out.
I’m certainly not depressed. And this is different from my discombobulated MUDD moments. An overwhelming feeling of disconnect. That’s it.
If you know what I’m talking about or experience days like this, I’d love to hear from you. It would be awesome to know that I’m not the only mom out there feeling this weird state-of-being.
Have you experienced a disconnected day?
