all is illusion  
A depression has settled upon me and lodged itself deep inside my brain. Nothing special going on to cause it, so it's almost certainly just chemical. It's funny how quickly I can lose the ability to care about anything. It's really like a switch has been pulled. At least I've been through this enough times to know I'll come back out the other end at some point.

Oddly, it's only at times like this that I ever feel I could be a Buddhist. My attachments to the world are refreshingly minimal at the moment and my suddenly emptied brain seems primed for meditation.

I'm sure there's a well-established link between depression and religious conversions.

Oh, I'm totally sure there's a connection. Speaking of meditation, I like this book --trying to crane my head to see the title on the bookshelf-- The Mindful Way Through Depression. I mean, if you feel like meditating anyway.

I inadvertently threw myself into a mania with a little too much sudafed, lord have mercy, the dreams I dreamed, busy busy busy brain...

Nice... I love cold medication dreams.

I just read the introduction to that book on google books and I think I'll read more. It seems helpful. Thanks!
