There is sometimes no segregating mood symptoms from topiramate-induced lability from migraine prodrome/postdrome from temporal lobe STUPIDITY.
Also: Everyone says that I have great insight. "Wow, that was very insightful" "At least you are able to maintain such good insight into the situation" "Considering you have bipolar, your insight is very good"
Ok, so they say these things right up until the part where I start worrying that my brain is actually getting worse.
Then, its no longer "insight"; its either "hypochondria" [to the layperson] or "a tendency to pathologize" [for those who like to gaze down their nose at you]… either way it pretty much amounts to:
"It's all in your head."
In my head, you say? No. Way.
