Crazy is as crazy does
I'm already bored with the gift baskets.
I had an appointment with my Crazy Doc on Monday, and I mentioned to her that I appear to have had 2 mild "up" incidents in the last month or so. They weren't full-blown episodes by any means, but definitely some type of hypomania (talking fast, not sleeping, getting these ideas and discarding them just as quickly, etc). She asked some questions and stated that she may have to increase my dose. Again.
I made a face, since I happen to know that my current dose is already on the high side.
"Don't worry," she said, reading my mind. "Just this morning I had a patient who is 600 mg higher than you."
Now, that may sound like a lot, but each pill is 300 mg. In other words, if she ups my dose by even 300 mg, I am then only one pill away from being her craziest patient.
