Pain turns the mind to mush

I think my brain is starting to atrophy. One thing I've noticed about chronic pain is it really serves to unfocus the mind. It's hard to concentrate on anything other than the pain itself, and usually that's the last thing you want to do. Instead, thoughts become disjointed and you seem to spend a lot of time in a sort of by the moment limbo. Once the pills start to kick in and things subside, your brain just feels an immense sort of relief and does the mental equivalent of sinking into a comfy armchair and vegging out.

Sometimes I feel like I should be planning something or doing something or anything. But notta comes to mind. I'm the proverbial boat without a rudder.
