> hey man. I've settled on 30 for now. In the winter, I turn somewhat...manic, for lack of a better term. I would say "hypomania," but I get kind of intense intrusive thoughts/audible thoughts, and I don't think that's a hypomanic thing. I can still feel the crazy, but its clearly been tranquilized to the point that I feel it less.

Well, I'll always be on your side.
I hope an extended time of stability on Abilify helps you to put the pieces of the puzzle of life together. When you have finished, you'll have to show me how to do it.
You might want to look further into this, but it is my impression that the rate of akathisia with other antipsychotics is actually higher than that of Abilify. It is just that with Abilify, the rate of the other EPS are reduced to near zero, so akathisia will be reported more often.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
