I don't think many people have my particular issue or at least not for the same reasons, but maybe it will help someone else:

For some background, I used to get confused sometimes, and forget things like which room I was just in, and not once in awhile, but minute to minute for hours. I'm on medication that among other things, helps with that, but lately, a less intense version of this has come up again over the past week or so.

It has prevented me from working. The people I work with are patient, but it has been over a week.

In the meantime, I've been writing an article about metacoding in C++, and that's forcing me to walk through what I'm doing as I'm explaining it, and giving me a good "cleanse" in terms of getting my head away from work.

And suddenly I'm surprising myself with what I'm creating. I'm not as efficient as usual, but I managed, through writing about coding to get to the point where I was actually coding.

And maybe this seems obvious, or maybe not. I don't know. It worked for me. I'm not at 100% but I might be able to work again now.
