I don’t talk politics on this blog, but just this once. Call me a saddo, but I used to like the cut and thrust of debating politics and listening to it. Now it is about nothing but Brexit and all the comments are so extreme and vituperative that it turns me off looking at politics in papers, online and the TV.
The problem is that is harmful for me as I am no longer using politics to stimulate my cognitive processes, and that, and the thought of how depressing politics now is, creates fogginess and a feeling of losing an interest. My work over dementia has now become all the more important to me as as a means of keeping me stimulated and, basically, going.
