I asked him almost two weeks ago, I've no phobia against honest and skilled assessment. His response requires his consent.

I'm trying to nice-up a response to your other things in ways that won't contribute to any depression. I'm not being not-nice, but short and too-to-the-point reads like retort. You can tell me how you scored me, here or by email, but....

Criteria D of the APA Criteria for Manic Episode is the only one half-applicable, first-half only thankfully, except even it pre-supposes that the moods evidenced are "causative" and not derivative:

D. The "mood" disturbance is sufficiently severe to CAUSE marked impairment in occupational functioning (duhhhh!) or in usual social activities or relationships with others,.......

I'm busy writing up a few questions for tomorrow's rounds. Most eminent deadlines usually hog my priority and attention, so I'm not dumping on you, just reserving more care. Properly responding to you will take some care, since I can't watch any instrumentation on you. I have to guess how much your acknowledged medication affected cognition levels average to. The problem with my having been the same way so long is that I both; can't remember it very well, and I've put out of my mind as much as I could of what I could remember. Repetition from multiple perspectives came in best for me then, thus I lean towards that. Trying to get through in just one post, not trying to sound manic.

I knew that half a picture's worth of words wasn't going to be enough. Everyone's learning is a pyramid of facts. I have more. I'm signed up for an Acquired Brain Injury Specialist certification class and a related Perceptual Processing: Cognitive Rehabilitation class. Most common denominator. Regardless of whether I stay up or go down again, that will help both myself and those that have helped me. Once I learn the lingo better, I'll sound like I know the lingo better.
