Something of an emotional wreck today.

This is one of those "trough" days, a valley in the peak-and-valley rollercoaster of emotion that happens with depression.

Brain feels like mush, like thinking through Jell-O, unflavored and unspiced, dim and slow. I feel like I'm losing bits and pieces of memory, bits of how to be able to recall things, like it's at the tip of my tongue but I can't quite get there. So far it's not to the extent where I'm worried about early-onset Alzheimer's, but it's scary when it happens.

Depression and stress affect memory and cognitive ability too. As does diabetes.

Yeah, cognitive bump. Like making a simple arithmetic mistake in the bank balance. Whoops. Means that Christmas will be a bit on the skimpy side this year, like devoid of any prezzies. I'm fine with that myself, but I would have liked to be able to give some things to friends that aren't gonna happen in the soon.

Scrooge. Grinch. Bah, humbug!
