> In the past few years my depression has morphed into hopelessness (not as much anxiety or sadness). It's hard to describe. It's like my thoughts are so 'painful' even though they are not logically formed thoughts. I had been using scopolamine (anticholinergic) which helped suppress / control these thoughts, but I haven't needed any in the past week. Honestly, I think my brain was in a hypercholinergic state (extreme pessimism, low energy, somewhat racing thoughts, constantly focusing on the big picture but paralyzed to do anything about it).

> What I am noticing is that (on atomoxetine) my thinking is becoming more linear. For example, I am starting to see the things that I can do, rather than the things I can't do (or just seeing 'everything' in a big jumbled mess). It is also easier to start and continue tasks without giving up over something extremely small and trivial. Also, I am able to better 'get into' things like movies or books.

Can you explain this "hypercholinergic" cluster of symptoms and how you relate it to cholinergic activity?
