"Mental Health" is a poor choice of words here, or at least...


its use is confusing to us outsiders. It makes it sounds like she went back to her room turned out all the lights and slept for 15 hours when really its meaning is much more technical. The meaning of "twisties" is not the same as what Osaka was referring to.

Yeah, I get it, sorta losing your queue on what to do in a particular instance, that is, you know what to do when you get to that mental starting point but if you lose that everything becomes gobblydegook.

Not even a medical issue, it's like when you've known someone for 20 years and then one day you just can't remember their name, head's in a strange place, the next day, no problem.
