I have been on Paxil for 6 months now. I went from being introverted, quiet and " keep to myself" type of person to a person that has character and flair. I have about 5% of anxiety about what other people think of me. Add that with me being bipolar and I am something else. It makes me wonder if my SA was hiding my bipolar. I don't think I am doing anything " wrong" per say but I am sure people would now describe me as a person with flair. Before I was quiet and boring. An example of my new personality is I put a small stuffed pink gorilla on my desk at work with a sticky note on him that said " Hi, My name is Bamboozie" He has a graduate hat on and a diploma under his arm. I would of never done something like that before Paxil. So I wonder is this really me???
