I wanted to ask others what they would do if they were losing their mental abilities? I have seen a therapist for about seven years and I have frequently told him that other people can do things that I just don't understand. He has always normalized this by telling me that it is simply practice and that if I persist that I will be able to do what others are able to do. If you were seriously on the decline in the mental health aspect of your life, what would you do? My thoughts are that medication cannot solve everything. I am lucky to have a job right now, but I don't know whether I will be able to continue to work unless something starts getting better in the mental area such as my memory.

On a nostalgia kick I de-mothballed the PS2 and picked up a used copy of Half-Life. I was halfway through the game yesterday when I lost power. I was quicksaving frequently--practically every room (wussy, I know). Mystery: The saved game is still there--but it isn't. [more inside]
