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.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
