Hi Snapper,
To respond back to you:
>> Also I don't think a lot of pdocs are sensitive to what really annoys us....

**I'm not actually sure yet because I've never told him about these things. To me, they've been so hidden and ingrained in my coping mechnansims that it's become a part of my life that I forgot to pinpoint even to my pdoc! I will next session guaranteed.

>>I say this because I just convinced my doc to switch me from Klonopin to Xanax for various reasons and with in the first day, my startle response to stimuli was greatly diminished...

**Um. that's interesting.

>>I still contend that a lot of "our" hyper-response" to stimuli is related to 'OCD'- not saying that everyone with these problems has OCD-but once again , I will say this....BP disorder and anxiety disorders are very much intertwined, and getting effective treatment for the primary condition helps-but does'nt always solve the other problems!

**Could be related to OCD. But mine have never really had a complusion side (except for a brief time when I was young).

>>Also Katia , I know exactly waht you mean by pleasant sounds... but I still have to be in control of wheather or not I subject myself to those sounds, noises , or intolerances...etc. If someone has the TV on a loud and annoying station-sometimes it is all I can do to tell them to turn the S*IT down or off or I have to leave the room. I feel mean that I am this sensitive but I guess it is better than grabbing the remote and stomping it into the ground! lol -- Also another thing, then I'll shut up (for now !) Do either of you or any of you have a problem with 'RAGE"- ie; wanting to go off on the simpilest of annnoyances but find that most of the time that you can contain yourself? That is a subtle marker (IMHO) for BP tendancies etc!

***Oh - oooo lala...the rage. You can't even EVEN imagine it. I had an all day graduate class on Saturday for 88888888 (eight!) hours and one man sat w/ his legs crossed constantly wiggling his foot throughout the entire 8 hours. I thought I was going to jump up and kick the *hit out of his foot screaming/howling at him to stop torturing me!!!!!!!!! I looked around at others - no one NO ONE even noticed. I mentally noted "none of you have a clue what kind of hell I'm going thru' at the moment!!!!" while still trying to remain present for the class which is very experiential. Anger, rage, uncontrollable lashing out are ALL consequences of keeping me trapped in that stimuli/sensory output. I HAVE to get away in order to get calm and rational again so I can breathe. It's totally insane. totally. and it's hell to be me.

I wish I could be cured. It's not like I haven't tried...
