Yeah, about good grades. I was finishing my master's degree and got AF my last semester. I had a 4.0, an A in every class... I don't know if I contribute my excellent grades to OCD though? I've ALWAYS been OCD, long before AF! I would contribute the good grades to me being in a super high cortisol stage and having a type A, perfectionist personality.
So, more about high cortisol... right before I had my first AF crash, I was like a tazmanian devil, i was working full time and taking classes full time, among balancing a number of other stressful things. I was on top of the world, extemely productive, efficient, funny, etc etc. So to explain the grades... at that point in time, everything I did had to be excellent, but again I blame that on the high cortisol... it felt like being a drug that made you feel like you could and should be amazing at everything.
