    The advice in this post works … speaking from experience…. any overwhelming chore is best taken in small bites when you can’ t make yourself tackle it… That is how i just did my taxes
    Can one feel depression coming on or does it just body slam you into immobility? I suspect it could be both. . That said.. .
    I have been doing some reading on how our brains can delude us… modern research capabilities are coming up with some stunning proofs… This is tragic and very different than a simple change of attitude
    Michael Gazzaniga – he has written some secular material worth your time, if you’re not sure what to believe

    Em,
    I hadn’t heard of the author you spoke of so I’m going to look him up and look into his research. I’m glad you got your taxes done. 😉

    Em–“Can one feel depression coming on or does it just body slam you into immobility?” I suspect it could be both. Some people are afflicted with a depressive disorder, which indeed does “body slam them into immobility”. Others who have depression are given to situational depression, the kind that can come on based on events the person has no control over. I personally have a depressive disorder, which makes it difficult to NOT be depressed. I have to watch everything, from how I eat to how I think to how much sleep I get, and other things. The fight itself can be quite daunting, especially since depression can make you lethargic and tired all the time.

    Thank you, Cash, for the first hand explanation… Tackling that road block as you describe puts my everyday small challenges in perspective.
    When i heard Gazzaniga interviewed, decided to order his book, “Who’s in Charge.” As a layman i learned a lot about the brain from it. I went through school with the Gazzaniga kids. Michael was younger than me and not a personal acquaintance, so i don’t think, i hope, that doesn’t color my perspective 😐
    God keep you, Cash
