OK, so right now I’m on:
I tried everything I think, with 6 doctors, and right now I can’t seem to find anything to get me out of the depression I’m having
My current doctor hinted that I’m running out of options and if I ever considered ECT
I want to stop searching and quit medication altogether based on what I read about ECT, and my doctor wasn’t that convincing is a good option either
So, any of you have any experience with ECT, good vs bad, it’s worth it, take it and keep searching for the combo that’s good for me, change my doctor, anything that after 15+ years would make me feel it's still worth staying on medication and look?
I don’t really want to quit 100% but if this is the end of the line, I’ve been depressed without medication and I also felt good without medication, I know I was super manic too, but I was happy without medication
Hi, I was wondering if anyone here meditates? I have been practicing Zen since 2005, added zen meditation to everything else I am doing, my illness is still pretty bad. Just wondering if anybody else meditates for their illness and how that is working out for you? How is your meditation experience?
My pdoc has me questioning some things.Does your pdoc give you seperate diagnoses or lump all the symptoms of other disorders in to bipolar disorder? I have alot of symptoms of ptsd, and he admitted I had ocd tendencies and generalized anxiety disorder but isnt concerned with labels...but I consider the "labels" official diagnoses. He says they're all symptoms that ebb and flow with mood episodes...
