Chloe,

I got a really decent raise at work once-and I have to "chalk" it up to lithium. I took an extra 150mg daytime (which I had rarely ever done), and went in to talk to my boss about the $$ issues-and I just spelled out my case very casual and matter-of-fact, and walked out .. with more than I expected! The whole trick was not to get all emotional and pissed. That is what will defeat folks everytime.
