Brain fog / cognitive ability

I've been really struggling recently with my ability to think, listen, or explain things clearly. I have spent the past week trying to write a to-do list for a project that should have only taken me a day or two! I only have to start looking at the list and I can feel myself getting anxious and confused really quickly. Especially if someone asks me to explain something, or if they try to explain something to me. I have to ask them to repeat themselves or clarify what they mean etc - and when I *finally* understand I can see that it was actually something quite simple and I should probably have understood the first time around. I'm starting to seriously worry about how my MS is affecting my cognitive ability for these things. Does anyone have any tips on how to overcome this? Or is it time to consider work that is less taxing on the brain?!
