Not sure if this is still active but am so happy i found it! I have been diagnosed with depression and mild form of bi polar disorder. When I was diagnosed i didn’t understand what it meant until years later I was complaining about my anti depressants. Through doctors and friends i realized it wast my meds per se it was my affliction. My anti depressants were putting me through cycles of depression and mania. I weaned myself off meds to be put on new meds but withdrawal was so terrible i realized I didn’t want to on anything in my body that made me feel like I was weaning off heroine! I’ve been med free for a few months and am happier but I do need coping techniques. I will check out your website. For now I try to keep a journal and remind myself most of what I feel has nothing to do with what’s actually happening around me.
