It feels like my brain is currently powered by a Celeron chip with only 1GB of RAM. It processes slowly but it does get there. The more I have to multitask or the more complex the problem, the harder it is for me to process and respond. My brain even “freezes,” “crashes,” and shuts down. Yes, get a concussion and you too can experience Windows Personal. Shut down: afternoon nap time. Time for the system to reboot. Crashes: sensory overload. Often results in migraines and/or shut down. Freezing: caution! multi-tasking ahead. Just like a computer; too much information or tasks, the slower the response time. If the problem is too complex, I can’t process it at all. For example, making Rice-a Roni. Seriously indedible by the time I was done. Of course, I tried to get fancy and add meat and veggies. My mistake. Just boiling water, adding rice, simmering, and adding the flavoring is complicated enough. Ever eat half-cooked, half soggy Rice a Roni? I have. It was rather nasty. It’s like:

I found this:
