I am closer to "lowering the bar". I don't want to, damn it, but I think I might accomplish more with your ways of dealing with things.

You are absolutely right about accepting one's challenges and to work with them instead of against them. Yes, the acceptance is the hardest part, especially when I was functioning at a much higher level before getting sick. I could write a lot more here, but it would only serve to immerse us in negative and demoralizing thinking.

I have had to accept going from being one of the brightest people in the room to being one of the most dull-witted. The ways in which my depression affects me leave me feeling subhuman.
