I’ve been busted!
I tried exceeding the brain budget limit by leveraging caffeine, it worked, but only briefly.
Yesterday my brain crashed and FORCED me to rest. I’d been caught, I am guilty, once again involuntarily making a fool out of myself. I’d broken the law of trying to do too much, acting as if I do not have an injured brain, enjoying a brief taste of normality and the freedom I hold dear.
The consequences have been rather harsh outside of the normal brain fatigue. For the last two nights I have been having VIVID, gruesome, violent nightmares, one of which I awoke from shaking. This is not normal, we don’t have TV, I have not watched anything violent (because I don’t like it, let alone my brain not being able to tolerate it.)
I have to do time. I know, it sucks! All freedom has been revoked. I’ve been sent to dark, quiet, solitary confinement until I fully recover from my latest infraction.
