The more and more I read things written by people in this community, the more convinced I am that I'm brain dead.

Everyone here is so smart and articulate. I've totally lost my brain and ability to speak and write. I hate to admit it, but if I met anyone here in real life I'd probably label you as totally normal. You come off as so intelligent, capable and motivated sometimes I begin to become convinced that this dp thing isn't really the problem.

Maybe my problem is worse than I thought.

This was really meant to be a compliment,
not a complaint.

:oops:

Hey,,,You sound the same, you seem to be able to express yourself... You feel this way because your mind is so busy all the time. You are self monitoring , looking for something, on guard 24 hours a day.... That is why you feel you can't talk or think etc... your brain doesn't get a rest from the constant self monitoring.

Your writing is coherent .... Use those coping skills, distraction, read, watch a movie anything but ruminate over and over. when you start to rumnate, get up and do something that requires your undivided attention. Retrain your brain..... that is what I try to do anyway....

Good luck

I think you are just as smart and articulate as anyone else here...

(Actually, I feel completely stupid now, too, 'cause I forgot to do something I usually do this time - just forgot to look at the watches, but now I really wonder what the ... was I doing all the time. Somehow I had a feeling that it's much later than it actually is. Okay, just another boring complaints, but it's always good to write them down, even if they're not very much connected with the thread I post them in. Uff)

Ha, I wish you could see the thought process/time it takes for me to type out responses..... Then again, I can't see anyone either. I just can't imagine that such thought-out responses are from people who are as "constipated" for thought as I am..

Hey.

Was your condition drug-induced? This has been getting me down a lot lately. I feel as though the anxiety has replaced my intelligence when it comes to most things. I realise that it's still there - I've just lost so much motivation that any concentration seems impossible. Suck it up man, you're not alone in this.

Hey, you can't talk that way about fingertingle, I happen to like a lot of her posts!

Don't mistake being brief and to the point with being inarticulate. You get your point across in a couple of sentences; it takes some of us (like me) a couple of paragraphs to say what we want to say. Who wants to read all of that?

Yes, exactly! You so elegantly expressed the very thing I've been trying to say! James Joyce himself couldn't have said it better!

P.S. I hope you can tell that I'm teasing, not making fun of you. I'm trying to boost your ego.
