you know the feeling you get after you eat a big meal? when you're so full that you almost can't move? that's the feeling i get in my brain after I've spent any substantial amount of time studying. i feel like my brain is full, and talking about anything other than what I've been studying will take up extra gray matter that i need to memorize all the information. not only that, once i start studying different disorders, i'm convinced I've got them all. since i'm studying neuro i'm positive that the twitch in my eye is going to become full-blown trigeminal neuralgia. not only that, i spent the entire weekend diagnosing everyone i came across with various personality disorders.

so i'd advise you to stay away from me until the end of the week. i might start listing the lobes of the brain and their functions. or the twelve cranial nerves. or i might try to convince you that you've got borderline personality disorder.

Lol! I know the feeling of self-diagnosing really well. As obsessed as I am with psychology, I get into these moods where I dread the chapters about the diseases and disorders knowing that by the end of the day I'll be a nervous wreck thinking that I have them all. Studying on the other hand, stuff besides memorization, I enjoy because I try and force myself to enjoy whatever it is that I'm studying by convincing myself that it will eventually be of some use to me. It can be difficult when you're learning advanced calculus lol, but that method usually works for me. :)
