oh I didn't think you were calling me bipolar. I am "moody" though. I've been a little hypomanic at times, but it doesn't last long enough to mean anything.

you felt it was harsh then? as in anxiety causing?

I have no problem with people who use marijuana, although multiple uses of it daily can create more problems than any relaxation it brings, its just that when you are mixing it with other psychoactive substances and if you are not informing your doctor (maybe you are?) (some are more receptive than others and it doesn't mean you're going to be reported or anything, its a valuable piece of information that a partnership with a psychiatrist could benefit).

yeah...I ended up calling my pdoc. He knows. I've never really been able to lie (or lie by omission) to any extent, but I really squirm while I tell the truth. I spoke with him yesterday. He said that the marijuana withdrawal would last a few days and I should take extra klonopin to deal with it. I actually stopped for about two weeks though and the irritability seemed to persist.

thanks jay :-)
