As the title implies, I'm looking for a word that results in the meaning of being in the state of "just out of bed", not concentrating and cannot talk regularly. The usage would be something similar to I'm sorry I didn't pickup the phone, I was still ____ and my mind was a bit fuzzy.

  • I think the word you want is "groggy."

I don't know any single word that specifically connotes "just out of bed". Discombobulated doesn't have this connotation, and is rather playfully esoteric, which may not be appropriate, but it would fit your sentence and general meaning of being confused and 'not with it'. Groggy is a more commonplace word which also suggests being slow and unable to think properly, but similarly, can refer to such a mental state not only after awakening, but also after injury or alcohol/drug intoxication.
