> Just wondering something. I keep feeling like I'm getting dumber my the minute. I read posts here and I am completely confused and lost as to their content and vocabulary. I just don't seem to "get it" Is this a symptom of depression--Steadily Decreasing I.Q?
Hey, maybe you're getting smarter or more perceptive. Maybe the old "what the hell are you talking about?" syndrome is kicking in, wherein the sufferer suddenly realizes that what she is reading -- for all its big words -- doesn't make a lick of sense.
By the way, the opposite of you're possible affliction is known as the "UmbertoEcoism," a sad disease that causes the sufferer to write using superfluous technical terms, esoteric bits of history and religion and philisophical gobbledy-gook. Just want you to know that my treatment is coming along, well. In fact, its transplendantly liberating in its onanistic munificence!
