Iris, except for being unable to read, you sound like me most of the time. I'm sorry, I've forgotten, are you on medications? It's forgetting stuff that's terribly annoying and I'm casting about for things to blame it on. I don't think, that at 62, old age is one of them.
Bridgey, I remember that awful, jagged irritation was a symtom of hypomania for me and that going up on topomax, usually by 25 mg increments was done so with great hostility. "You're so hostile!" my poor bloodied husband would remark, which is one of the reasons I don't want to go off Topamax now.
Having gone down on the wellbutrin in anticipation of provigil, I'm growling and hissing and mean and mostly defensive--awful. We've been married for 38 years and I don't understand why we're still married.
Maybe that's where some of my loss of self control is coming from...medication imbalance. Mouth wise. So good luck Bridgey, and be your own best friend re doctors, I think.
I have to think awhile, Kat, about what I'd do if I couldn't read for awhile, like a day or two--five days is unimaginable. I'm a cat person so I don't have walks with four legged people as an option.
It wouldn't be fun.
