> Lithium can certainly cause cognitive impairments in some people. I have unipolar depression, not bipolar disorder, but when my Lithium level was .8 it felt like there was a brick wall in my brain blocking any sort of comprehension. It was so bad I would literally stand on the spot staring at whatever was in front of me.

This is EXACTLY how she describes it! Word for word. She said she will have a paper in front of her, and just stares at it - like it's a blank page. She calls her mind a blank page when she's trying to comprehend something. She said it's so frustrating, because it's like her brain just *won't* comprehend - and there's nothing she can do - and all the while she gets further and further behind.

Thanks for confirming that description, papi
