i'm one. i have a bipolar disorder that i want to think is a side effect of gabapentin. but i can remember mood swings and erratic behavior from my early twenties on. i also have degenerative joint disease, compressed discs in my neck and back and permanent damagee to my right leg. i am at the point where my leg drags more frequently now. i have 2 metal plates in my neck to open up my spinal column. the discs weere closing off my spinal cord. this threatened to leave me with no control over my bowel and bladder. i have a neuromuscular problem with my hands and legs. it feels like tightening under my skin and chill bumps under the skin of my legs. all in all, i am a disabled little who trys not to let the challenges weigh her down. when i get depressed i blow bubbles. one of my aides got me a big bottles of bubbles and 3 puzzle books for my birthday. all i need now are coloring books, crayons, markers, paintboxes and a Bam-Bam.
