This post is a reminder to my fellow crazies to put that Brain Glitch Plan into action. Your plan will be flexible and probably changing often depending on the needs of your current brain state.
I thought I had had a plan. And I kind of do but the thing I forgot to do is have the person I chose to help me in a brain glitch be aware of this role. Instead of telling him ahead of time, instead of preparing him, we found ourselves dealing with it badly. Brain glitches are deceptive. They seem very real. They seem to be based in truth and if someone else has gotten into that brain glitch that person very likely will bear the brunt of it.
That's what happened to my person.
Oh, my poor person helper.
I've done it right this morning. I made him aware of his new role. I made him aware of what he will have to do next time it happens. It takes someone who is very compassionate and able to see past surface behavior to realize what is truly going on.
Do you have that person yet? It can't be a lightweight, a sunny day friend in your life. It has to be someone who sticks with you no matter what.
And I have a verse for you that can help after one of these brain glitches:
"in returning and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength" Isaiah 30:15b
