Ways my stomach is affecting my brain
As documented previously, I've been having stomach problems and it's affecting me on and off stage. Here are some highlights.
- •Forgetting set ups or punchlines or details.I've been hyper aware of it now, so it's been easier, but the first two weeks of this problem, I was all over the place during sets. If they went well, it took every fiber of my being. Even then, I was off a beat or two.
- •Reading this and remembering them out of order.Dyslexia, pretty much.
- •Conversations are a bit spaceyI forget to ask certain questions or answer very shorthanded, even more so than I usually would.
- •Forgetting thingsI have walked out the door and had to turn around to grab a thing or two.
- •At one point, I walked towards the door, thinking I was ready to go, only to realize I wasn't wearing a shirt.
- •And the newest one, my favorite, was today: putting on my boxers backward.
