Finally, I've made major progress.  I'm feeling fairly stable now.  There are occasional ups and downs but they're mild compared to before.  Also, and this will sound odd, but the ups and downs last longer now, which is a relief--milder but longer, whew.  In the past, I could have those ups and downs many times in one day and they were much, much, much stronger than they are now. I've been so isolated.  I hope I can gain ground with friends again.
