      I remember it differently. They react about the same to any kind of stimulus as "normal" people but recover faster. Also when the experimenters set it up so that they can expect pain after a certain cue, they do not freak themselves out. Normal people actually feel part of the pain, after the cue, before the actual pain, but highly experienced meditators don't, they just feel the pain when it arrives. But yeah I occasionally meditate and it helps.

      I have a few that are co-morbid with temporal lobe epilepsy, but I'm not sure if I would consider them psychological disorders since they're caused by a physical disorder. (Maybe I just say that because it makes me feel better about myself or something.)

      They just slapped the label of schizophrenia on me and said it might be epilepsy-related, it might not. I'd probably find out more if I went to doctors more, but health care in the US is way too damn expensive to bother with unless you're close to dying. I've got some meds that do well at keeping me stable, and only cost ten bucks a month, so as long as they work I don't feel like it's a problem.

      Plus I like to think it might be a reason why I lucid dream naturally and as often as I do.

      Hmm, I don't have any "official" diagnoses of any mental illness, but I do suspect I have a mild case of ADHD and OCD. I can't focus on anything sometimes, and other times if I do manage to focus, I can do a task for hours on end until I realize I haven't eaten anything for a long time and am starving. I also double check some things, like if I took my phone (well, I check that every 5 minutes actually, it's a habit of mine to slap my pocket and see if it's still in there all the time) and if I locked the door, etc.

      What kind of fool, what kind of fool am I? I look for shadows in the sun, and memories of days to come.

      Social anxiety, mostly. I'm also still very angry and insecure because of my history with bullies. I tend to lash out and hurt people for little or no reason. Over the years I have lost all my friends (or rather, "acquaintances") and now the only person I ever see physically is my mom - but she'll be moving to another country next month.
      Current projects:
      -Acquire the Aurora
      -Test galatamine, huperzine and choline
      -Find smartwatch app for RC reminders at certain intervals
      -Ressurect my dream log here, and become more active

      I have Generalised Anxiety Disorder It sucks. It's not as bad as it was though thanks to medication and meditation.

      Generalized Anxiety Disorder for me as well. I've tried dealing with it using all kinds of methods, some effective and others maladaptive. It led me to a pretty dark place mentally for a long time, though these days I'm managing better than ever with a combination of marijuana, health conscious practices, and various cognitive strategies. After suffering with it for decades I've come to realize it's something I'll never get rid of entirely, but accepting that has been helpful in itself.

      I keep meaning to give meditation a proper try, I just can't seem to get into the habit. Any tips?

      Start slow. Just one minute per day (but make an effort during that minute). Then, after a week, meditate for two minutes a day. And similarly add one minute every week. It will be very little effort initially, because of the short duration. And weeks later it will be fairly little effort still, because you will have gotten used to it.
      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      Thanks for the advice! I think my problem might be trying too much too soon. I'll see if I can ease my way into it like you suggest.
