Not “Splinter-functioning” — “Spike and Trough Functioning”

graph showing line that spikes and troughs across the "normal" mid-line
This would be a chart of any one of my abilities… on an average day / week / month. Even from moment to moment.

I misspoke earlier about the name I’d like to give my particular sort of functioning. I’d called it “Splinter-Functioning“, but that’s not right. It’s “Trough and Spike Functioning”.

Because one day/moment/hour I can be high above normal in some ways, and the next, I can come crashing down.

And when I say “crashing”, I mean crashing.

I think Spike/Trough works better.
