Trigger: excessive encounters with fill-in-the-blanks (apparently, for every aspect of one’s life there is a corresponding form to fill out), erratic weather

Duration: three days on and off

Pills popped: 4

Losses: inability to finish the last thirty or so pages of current reading material, hours wasted on secretly adored vapid reruns of shows, revived fear of sunlight

Pain-induced statements of intent: must have eyes checked, must acquire non-disposable pair of sunglasses, must eat more vegetables, must cultivate more positive outlook toward exercise, must stop hoarding photocopied handouts, must stop filing useless ATM receipts, must rearrange closet, must give away clothes, must give away books, must give away possessions
