The truth is... Is the brain fog side effects often makes me unable to learn via written word at times.

With meds I feel handicapped...
I skip over information. It's frustrating and upsetting... Hence video podcasts are a easier way for me to learn.

I've often wondered if taking yohimbine to trigger hypomania would work.
Controlling mania would be amazing...
Trust me I've thought about that for years. A controlled low level hypomanic state would be AWESOME. I don't know if it's possible.

Note: My depression probably puts a negative slant on everything. I am in the best shape I've ever been.
It does. Even if objectively things aren't taht bad, depression makes you parse it in a way that is somehow.
