But it just doesnít sit right with me.. especially the mania. And then I come to a forum like this and see people with such similar life experiences. Anyway... I see my psych next week so hopefully we will explore this further. All I know is that Iíve had a crazy life with sooo many hobbies and professions all ending up with a crash and burn and moving onto something else. Iím disorganized and can only focus on things that are my current passion. Until now... the Wellbutrin has killed that aspect for sure.
Wow, sounds so familiar. I always correct people when they say I'm a "jack of all trades" I usually stick with something until I've experienced a degree of mastery before I crash and burn. I'm a master of several trades, and a beginner in several, I'm no Jack.
