Damn, REB, I totally relate to your post...most people here seem to have the emotional disconnect and unreal feelings, but can still function mostly normally and people don't notice. I have the same problem as you with my exectutive function being in the shits. I can't prepare any but the simplest of meals, and it usually takes me 4 or 5 times to actually complete my shower routine. All I need to do is bring in a towel and new clothes. You wouldn't think that would be too difficult, but man, it's such a Herculean task for me.
