I literally feel as if my brain has shut down. I barely remember anything and feel so lost. I don;t know what I'm doing or where I'm going. I have lost track of everything. I can't focus and having problems hearing, listening, communicating. My speech is all messed up and the worst part is I don't even know what is going on with me.

Can anyone relate to what I'm going through?

Unfortunately I cannot relate exactly, but I have had times where I felt similar, like I couldn't focus or listen. Are you getting adequate amounts of sleep? Eating ok? Those may all be factors that contribute. Treat yourself to a nice meal and a long sleep some time soon :)

I can relate exactly to what you are going through.
You have almost described everything I feel or don’t feel.

It frustrates me but mostly frightens me because I don’t know what
is happening, why it is happening and whether I will
1)always be like this
2)get better or improve
3)become worse

If anyone can offer advice or help I would love to share it.

Everything is just so random. From my eye movement, to walking, talking, typing, speaking and everything else is uncontrolled and on autopilot. It frightens me

I think hongli was on the right track, make sure you get some morning exercise, that you eat healthily and that you get enough good quality sleep. Then make a visit to the gp, get yourself checked out, there are medical conditions like an under active thyroid which can make you very tired. Go to a nutritionist and have your vitamins checked out, a mineral or vitamin deficiency can also cause these kind of problems.

You could try eating some sugary foods and see if that changes things, the brain runs 90% on sugar.
