> What do you mean by hyperactivity ? If you mean the ADHD-kind, swtiching from thing to thing without concluding anything, yes, I have that problem too (when my mood is good). I don't really know at the moment if this is soft bipolar II or the ADHD thing (or both).

Switching from thing-to-thing is more impulsivity which both classic ADHD and inattentive type ADD have in common. Basically they differ in that ADHD is having physical energy to spare, causing restlessness, rather than something that tends towards being lethargic.

> I think that when my energy level is good I resemble more to the overfocused kind, while otherwise I resemble more to the inhattentive.
> Once again I didn't manage to understand if overfocusing problems are dued to some kind of OCD or to the ADHD in itself.

Overfocus as well as OCD issues arise from hyperactivity in the cingulate gyrus according to Amen. Inattention arises from depressed prefrontal function. So it is more like co-morbidity than connection it would seem.

Ambient? ADHD is external reactive for mood, with day-to-day and within day variability. BP2 even in rapid cycling mode isn't as variable as that and it keeps to some inner-determined schedule.

> Pardon me for not answering the rest of the mail but I gotta go. I'm going to be out of town for a couple of days. I didn't get tyrosine yet, I'm a little shy in asking, it's not easy to find it here if you're not a bodybuilder : )

Work up the courage man! ;-) I think tyrosine will probably help you out significantly. I'm willing to bet you may be quite surprised even.

> Anyway I started Ginko to see what happened. Let's say it works : o I'm ready to run a marathon ... so, it seems that there is not sugar in those strange capsules ...

That's odd. Are there any other herbs along with the Gingko?

> Did you tried EPA-DHA ?

Not yet. I just got some EPA-DHA-GLA today along with some Royal Jelly. I also want to try TMG again eventually as I noticed some improvement with it when I was driking protein powder (and none when I wasn't, so aminos come first). But for more on that we should switch over to Alternative. I'll start a thread over there. Link to come in my next post. :-)
