Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Connections.
In an effort to figure out what makes a bad braining day a bad braining day, I started taking my blood pressure and pulse fairly often on those days. And guess what? The days I have the hardest time thinking seem to be the days when my blood pressure fluctuates a LOT in a short period of time. Today (well, yesterday, technically), was a really bad brain day. It started with losing words in the morning, and just got worse from there. My bp would go from 62/38 to 150/100 to 126/110 to 150/34 all within a half hour. It's no wonder I can't think. There's no consistent blood flow to my poor little brain!
