@GET: I know what you mean. I’ve had some really good days, days where I didn’t feel encumbered by inattentiveness, or anxiety, or the feeling that I wasn’t moving fast enough. And yes, I too wanted to squeeze as much productivity and enjoyment from those days because they are so infrequent. It’s been a long time since I’ve had one of those days. I miss them.

I agree with Rick in the definition of ‘normal’: “Perhaps what we all mean by ‘normal’ is ‘able to do what I would really like to do’.”

The frustrating part is not being able to reproduce these feelings, at will, with any reliability. They seem to defy attempts at identifying what might trigger these occasional shifts toward “normal.” At least for me anyway.
