I'm always learning something coming here to PR. While I have been increasingly ill in the past decade I was mildly to moderately ill most of my life and so the cognitive dichotomy that sinclair brings up I noticed long ago and had forgotten. I can't now remember all the ways it played out over the years but I remember it troubling me why I couldn't push through the 'hard stuff'. I guess it just uses more cognitive energy to confront some tasks more than others. Because I confronted this symptom so long ago being isolated (before internet) I assumed it was just me. This isn't the first time I've found others sharing a 'peculiar' symptom/misfunctioning of mine.
