Executive Function Impairment

I have been trying to write about Executive Functioning impairment and depression for a few days now with no success.

The problem seems to be that I have low executive functioning right now. Organizational skills, planning and executing those plans, ability to gauge time and how long something will take, being able to switch from one task to another while maintaining focus — these are all things I cannot do right now and am consistently failing at.

Since I’m having such a difficult time, I will link my readers to an explanation of executive functions and then present a Storify that documented my own struggles with accomplishing a simple task.

Here is a full overview of Executive Functions and their Disorders from the British Medical Journal:  http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/content/65/1/49.full
