It's funny they didn't want you seeing sparkles and fireworks. That is a pleasant side effect if you know it is just a side effect and there is not hidden significant meaning to it.Hey hermit. Now that you have a diagnosis you can plan ahead with a treatment plan. I was in depakote in 2009 whilst in hospital. I had to come off it as it gave me very strange visual hallucinations. Nothing scary but when I walked in to a dark room I would see sparkles like little fireworks going off. It was actually quite enjoyable but after mentioning it to the hospital staff they took me straight off it.
Don't forget that side effects vary from person to person.
I hope it gives you some stabilisation and good luck with the years ahead with your diagnosis.
The next chapter of your personal journey can now be written now that you have a diagnosis.
All the best
It was very pleasant but I fear there may have been something physical going on hence the sudden rush to get me off it.It's funny they didn't want you seeing sparkles and fireworks.

I have had that experience. But I didn't realise I had an illness so I gave it significance.
