Wow. Yeah, this about sums up what it's like living with #executivedysfunction sometimes.

(Which, BTW, isn't just an #add / #adhd symptom, but also appears in #bipolar, serious #depression, and #tbi)

@muninn autism as well, allowing for how specialized interests can be more like "super buffer, always full" or similar

@ultimape @muninn exactly. in that regard, i have this weird thing where i'll being rehearsing a piece of writing, and i'll hit a sort of glitch/comma, that sounds like i'm getting the articulation wrong.

if i push into it, it's like "ok, i speak in tongues now" when i read the line, not "ok, slower means more space to articulate" as is "normal." if i slow it down, it can become closer to english.

if i fragment the line, it's back to standard english. longer line? back to glossolalia land lol

@ultimape @muninn and more everyday functions can be like *loses track of the breakfast plate* *notices it, does a sub-task* *loses track of it again*, but singular tasks are fine


@shoutcacophony @muninn Its kinda a broken record at this point, but the saying of how exercise helps with all of this stuff - I think it because of odd things to do with how muscle/fat composition affects the circadian rhythm.

And I think the interplay of all of that with insulin levels is why better diets, exercise, and fasting all seem to help with Alzheimer's symptoms.

It really is all interconnected in a very complex way.

@ultimape @muninn right, agreed. that's one of the reasons i asked, my first impulse is to be like "cool, add it to the specialized interest task list"

later: ok, tired, but must keep going
