Thanks, Ramsea. Your post made me laugh! Aren't brains funny things? The webcasts I was listening to given by speakers on bipolar research all mentioned that bipolar disorder is considered the most fascinating condition in medicine. No other pathology spans the whole gamut of symptom extremes in such excruciating intensity and no other illness is able to contain two separate symptom polar opposites at the same time. Lucky fascinating us.
I'm going to start back on my regimen of L-tyrosine and L-phenylalanine because this state of blahs has a definite dopamine depletion feeling. I'd been taking Ritalin and Concerta for a short while and I know those meds can deplete dopamine, and serotonin raises inversely to dopamine. So I'll try to bolster it without meds that deplete it see where things go. These blahs and manias? I say 'Nevermore!'. - Barbara
