When I was first diagnosed my priorities were crystal clear and I did not sweat the small stuff. Bit by bit, however, the minutia has crept back and now I once again get fully agitated when other drivers don't signal or I'm on hold with the cable company. On one hand, this indicates a return to normalcy, and that's a good thing. On the other hand, I don't want to lose perspective on what's really important.
