How Do Thoughts Work?

Thoughts are essentially just electrical impulses, sent via synapses, through neurons. The impulses tell the brain cells how to respond in different situations, emitting different chemicals called neurotransmitters  which tell your body in essence how to perform. All we are, our memories, our thoughts, or very souls, all boil down to the living circuitry of the brain. And it's all, in a nut shell, electricity.

Definitely the best answer. I've had the same trouble since I got old. At least, yours will mend themselves when you stop the medication. Mine can only go downhill. :(

... oh .. Make no mistake .. I wasn't in that great a shape before I got sick ... and I still can't find my keys nor my pair of grey shoes or remember what was soo important that I had to make a mental note this morning about what I had to do today. Pffftt .. ya'd think I would know better by now .. mental notes are only scribbles .. and undecipherable!

Somebody once set that to verse:

"I thought a thought,
but the thought I thought,
was not the thought I thought.
And so when next a thought I think
I think I'll write it down with pen and ink."

Or, at the very least, record it on my mobile phone. :)
