I had extreme symptoms for years, and when I began to try meds I started getting better… sure it took a while to find the right meds and way of living, but I’ll take the weight gain over being manic any day!

People who complain about having no energy, passion, or ability to do everyday things must realize that it is better to be a little off than be in a mental hospital off and on for the rest of your life! After two years of recovery following my last stint in the hospital, I began to go to school again… this spring I will have a degree! Do what you have to do and be vocal about how you feel to your healthcare providers!

Good luck!
