Yes. everyone does now.
Maybe it has to do with food additives/growth hormones. Maybe it has to do with toxic pollution affecting our brains?
Binge drinking can cause blackouts in your memory, I was JUST reading articles on that because I binge drink once a month. If you are adolescent to age 25, the brain is still developing and it can cause PERMANENT stunting of brain function and memory function. If you binge drink as an ADULT, over age 25, other than the initial hangover, it causes no permanent damage. So I am lucky I starting Raving and Drinking heavily at age 27! :D Yeah! Good luck for ONCE!
Some people call blips in memory a "brain fart" meaning when you can't recall a word or name you KNOW that You KNOW IT. OR it could also mean you forgot a chunk of time what happened but can remember it at a later time just fine.
Time is a very funny thing. Time FLIES when you're having fun,but time drags tortuously when you are miserable. I would like to have that scientifically explained; How our perception of time can FLUCTUATE in such crazy and drastic amounts, and why?
It is normal to have memory blackout from before age 3. In developmental Psychology, you learn that toddlers before age 3 cannot accrue ANY long-term memory of events. Lifelong memories can only occur at age 3 and after. NO ONE remembers being born.
when you said you "woke up and was watching myself-with no control over what I might do".
This could be Disassociative Disorder (closely related to Schizophrenia, but NOT the same thing), its a mental and emotional disorder.
Also, I have heard that statement from people who think they have been abducted/possessed by Aliens. That they are a "puppet" and have memory blackouts. Call me crazy, but I just can't rule that out entirely. Its something to think about and decide for yourself.
Mind Fog can be associated with birth control pills, some medications and toxins/poisons building up in the body such as mercury, carbon Monoxide, Methane gas at high levels, radiation, sun poisoning, and LOTS MORE! I often get Brain Fog and then snap out of it and don't know where the time went. Where you're in a daze... hazy minded, CAN'T focus.
I can't help ya. But I can tell you that this happens to an AWFUL LOT OF PEOPLE. Its just one of them thangs that no one talks about. I don't know why.....
