-like 1% improvement on keto diet + intermittent fasting
-sometimes feel better after cycling
-meditation helps a bit to not go insane

Symptoms started ~6 years ago and seem to get worse every year

diagnosed ADHD-PI but doesn't make sense since I didn't have any concentration problems until the brain fog took over my life. Struggled with depression in the past because the brain fog turned me into a zombie/vegetable state. Diagnosed with Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder. Had asthma as a child, symptoms are much better now. I also suffer from seasonal affective problems.
