I have been up/down/up/down in my moods for YEARS. (I can't remember a time when I wasn't) I very rarely get manic but get depressed quite often. It's exhausting. It takes a toal on me mentally, physically, and emotionally.
I read an article about a man who killed a therapist..and he was off his meds...some school attacks--the attackers are off their meds.
I'm on medication right now..i admit, i'm not taking my full dose. I could say something but don't have a 'good reason'...
...need to get my life in order.
