Thanks, DD2. :) I appreciate all the no-rash thoughts I can get!

The word and spelling thing is pretty manageable, I think. I'm sure you guys can see some extra typos and such... and I was nervous on my history test today because I don't want to sound like an idiot and I don't always catch it right away... but as much as I love being "smart", I am willing to deal with this since it's actually working.

When I lost my memory when I quit smoking (I say lost... actually, I guess I misplaced it. I used to remember EVERYTHING and without the cigarettes I have to make lists and really concentrate and try harder to remember stuff) it was difficult. It was harder for me to deal with than even the weight gain. I am so glad that I quit smoking, and I wouldn't dream of going back to it now. I think I'm finally dealing successfully with the weight gain issues that are in part a result of the fact that I don't smoke any more. I still wish I had my memory back. So for me to say that this med is working so well that I will deal with the additional cognitive issues if I must and it's worth it to me, well, that's really saying something. I'm not any less smart in reality, and I know that. At least I know it intellectually. But being smart has always been a huge part of ME and I feel like I have given up some of that, at least on the surface. Luckily I'm old enough htat I don't much care what other people think. At least not as much as I used to.
