It must have been a hard day. I began by wondering why you were troubled by memories of a gold-fish, not usually the most endearing of pets.
Anyhow. I wouldn't be surprised if high doses of Rivotril scrambled your memory --- it'd be rather odd if it didn't. As it sounds as though your boss is trying hard to be understanding and helpful and knows about your bipolar disorder, it might be as well to mention the memory worries as well. And discuss this with your shrink who should know you well by now. SOme psychological testing could check and may find that your basic memory may be fine.
In the office, maybe use a dual approach --- ask your mentor ( who does't have to know everything, just to know who DOES know every specific thing _ and rather than expecting him to know all the answers, ask his advice about who to ask for more specialized advice, suggesting the source you were thinking of. That way you get the best advice and have a happier mentor
