This bud (W4 Bud) is a nibbler on winter Saturdays -- not so much during spring & summer. Yes. I know that feeling when your mind bounces around like a metal ball inside an old fashioned pinball machine. I will speak for myself. With me - personally - that particular kind of attempt to think combatted by an inability to think comes with anxiety, stress, and seasonal depression. To be metacognitive -- that is -- to be able to think about how you think -- is a positive step toward balanced health. You seem very aware of your own physical & emotional states. That deep level of introspection has got to be healthy. Otherwise you'd be lost without even knowing it. My suggestion? Sort things out. (coffee-housework-dress shopping-book-FS journaling) Write them down. Do them. Check the list. Then smile with satisfaction that you won the pinball game!
