Thank you Nancy99! On a personal note irrelevant to the article, I have only recently discovered that the medication I have taken for well over 2 decades has not made me well or whole or in any way improved my life. Now that I have successfully weened myself from psychiatry altogether, I am faced with finding a new definition for my malady and addressing it in a more productive way than taking pills and reporting monthly for further humiliation. I’m finding rumination to be a major obstacle to daily life. The act of ruminating, which occupies the vast majority of my waking hours and many hours I would rather be aleep, consists of replaying the past and suspected future in search of…I don’t even know what. It’s like I’ve lost my keys and can’t leave the house until i find them (and then when I do occasionally find them I set about looking for a way to avoid losing them again, starting with a full accounting for how I lost them last time.) All of this is just to say, I think you may be on to something here. I appreciate you sharing it.
