    Life Is Tough

    Once I was diagnosed with bipolar, I thought my life was over. I had several doctors opinions....but they all came out the same. I was scared and honestly I am still scared. But, I am on the right meds now due to trial and error. I have found Symbyax. It works so well. It gave me...

    Get Over It They Say...

    I was misdiagnosed as many are for about 12 years. I was on every anti depressant known to man. We all know the story. You take the medicine (which isn't the right medicine) then you stop...they give you something else...then you stop. This is a terrible cycle for all of us...

    It started being noticeable when I hit puberty, about age 13. My mom didn't understand why I would have fits like a 5 year old about some things, cry for no reason, or suddenly hit the roof with energy and giggly-ness. I remember getting really angry, so angry that I wouldn't be...
