I HATE Bipolar!
Right now I'm in a panic because I can't find my spare cochlear implant processors. When I checked the leather case I normally keep them in, they weren't there. Thanks to my severe short term memory loss, I have no idea where they are. I'm extremely frustrated by this situation and am getting tired of all the problems I'm having due to my inability to remember important things. I'm seriously considering asking my pdoc if he can put me on a med which will help address this. If it means I have to take 15 meds, so be it. At this point, I really don't care. Between what my sister said to me last night and what happened this morning with my spare processors, I've had it. Just when I think I've accepted my diagnosis, my patience is tested yet again and makes me wonder if I have the strength to go on.
