I had a bout of feeling seriously sad and mopey this evening.

Not that there's anything sad going on; it's almost certainly the aftermath of being stressed-out about financial stuff. (And I'm sure it didn't help that it was gray and gloomy this morning and that I skipped breakfast because I felt yucky this morning because I was all stressed-out.)

I realize that it's sort of ridiculous to say "I wish it were easier to distinguish between actual feelings and mere biochemistry," since the latter is what makes the former happen. But it would be nice if the process of distinguishing between results of neurochemical processing and byproducts from neurochemical processing were a bit more automatic and a bit less statistical.
