Circle Line

I have started to wonder, lately, whether my self-perception as someone who is not particularly sensitive is itself a sign of excess sensitivity. Certainly, it doesn't take much to prod me in the direction of negativity. I'll be cruising along, feeling calm and collected, and then some superficially minor irritant will initiate a mental detour. Then, more often than not, that mental detour will become a source of further irritation, leading to another mental detour. And so on and so on and so on. Sometimes, I don't realize what has been happening until I've completely forgotten the goal I set out for. Maybe I should just get diagnosed with ADHD so I can medicate the "auto" out of my teleology.
