Michael,
I consider or should I say feel that I am a "sponge" brain expert. I get it when I have very high stress. I take nortryptline a TCA, lithium(I am not bipolar) and tranzene (a benzo). I am med sensitive and have had many foggy experiences. Remeron caused that feeling to the extreme. I too, do very well in school and have high anxiety. I finished grad school fine, but re-entry into the workforce has proved to bump back my mental progress. I had a pdoc who told me to go about and do what I would if I didn't have this illness. It was good and bad advice. I totally changed fields and a year abroad sort of broke me and I developed anxiety again. It is a hard decision, but one you should talk to a counselor and your pdoc about. If your family is aware of your illness talk to them too. But, I have found very few that actually have an idea what I feel, they do not understand the torment that comes from anxiety over the future, which logic tells me to ignore and just live!! I recently realized I have a mental, biological, and spiritual combination that conflict with each other often. Which one do I listen too? It is hard at times. I enjoyed your post. IF I had to do it over again I probably would do it the same. Maybe no matter what I did I would have a relapse at times. But, there is something to be said for stability and happiness, and THAT is what I am looking for right now. Please consult people that care about you, and make sure you are comfortable with the change. Can you go to grad school part time? Test the waters without diving in maybe? Good luck
johnj
