Tips and tricks for dealing with fibro fog.

I've essentially been in a flare for almost 5 months, with pain getting worse again. There are so many things I want to do (work on an online A&P class, get back to the programming course I started) but my brain just won't cooperate.
I have told my pdoc and rheumy about this and they pretty much just shrug their shoulders (this is in S. Korea).
Anyone have any tips or tricks to get on with my life. I work 1-9, go to bed around 10 and get up about 8. Lately I've been reading kiddy lit (Yay for Anne of Green Gables) because that's the only level of difficulty I can seem to handle.
Am I going to be stupid for the rest of my life? I feel like I lost a huge part of myself (the fog was one of the reasons I left grad school with only a MA). Am I really just losing my mind?
Do ADD type meds help (not that I'd really bring it up to the pdoc unless there was a very good reason).
