The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

“Be prepared!”

The old boy scout motto. It came into play in two instances this week for me. Depression, fleeting darkening of the mental skies and a “flattening” of religious feelings or emotions. BOTH can be attributed to the lack of dopamine in the brain. Ever notice though that approaching storms look darker on the horizon? This storm got lifted when a job “materialized” in the studio (and when my VA neuro said I was doing “exceptionally” well). Now as to the flattening of religious notions or feelings, my Calvinist dentist friend says “feelings don’t got nothing to do with, just show up to work!'” I remember an old saying “Don’t forget in the dark what you learned in the light!” Now for those of you that are not religious, COOL, no worries! Just crank up “Imagine” by Lennon and groove on! For those of you that ARE religious, the sun is still shining above the clouds.
