I definitely get startled more. Actually my friend and I were discussing this very topic yesterday..we were expecting a call on her cell and yet when it rang we jump about 3 feet in the air. I am assuming its got to be some kind of effect between the meds and our minds..

I do it as well. I find myself to be very noise sensitive. I live in a house full of kids also. I'm on edge most of the time.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

I get really jumpy when I am hypomanic, especially if I am a bit paranoid. It is like I am hyperalert and fear people attacking is awful.
