reading and bipolar depression

Posted by Maynerd on October 21, 2005, at 12:40:31

I have a problem that I hope some of you can help me with. I have rapid cycling bpd and have a real problem with reading. When I am manic I am able to pour mountains of information into my head, but when I am depressed I can barely comprehend the words that I am reading, even the things I already learned. I have been able to bs my way through most of college to this point, but things are getting hard enough at this point that I can no longer survive by auditory and manic learning. As I am going to college this is becoming a real and unmanageable problem for me. I know my T says that lithium will help me, but it hasn't done much more than make the peaks and valleys of my moods somewhat better and more manageable and I can't afford any other meds without insurance. Is there anything else I can do? The frustration and anxiety this creates in me makes me feel even worse and makes the dark thoughts fly around in my head even more and I don't know how much more I can take before I finally give in and quit school. Any suggestions would be appreciated more than anyone can understand.
