Anybody who has not and who is talking out of heir butts does not know this and perhaps should keep their opinions on a matter they don't understand to their damn selves.

Yeah, I always start to slip in autumn with the stress of school and the change in weather, then I start to do things that make things worse and form a deadly positive feedback loop. Things get bad in autumn, but they get truely awful in winter when it's dark by 5PM. Canada is the worst, I just want to run away to the tropics or something.

Scrap my last question about why cardio sucks, lol!

What form of cardio is your preference, Lyle?
I've been running for a good few years now and as much as I find it improves my mood, I would like to change it up a little bit I think.

Default bipolar 1 / Reizüberflutung/( opposite of sensual deprivation )

I have had Orfiril ( long probably ), bad idea, weight loss, permanent sinusitis
Quetiapin Seroquel prolong ( forgot US nomenklatur, extensive or so) ( no serum plasma level could be measures, so it's a sleep aid just for me, metabolized quickly during night )
switched to Lithium, nice deal
subtherapeutic level reached with normal dose of aripiprazol
discussed other medications and so on
lithium and sports?

I was diagnosed a year and a half ago, after almost 20 years of misdiagnosis which lead to a bunch of meds which made things worse. It completely destroyed my career, strained personal relationships and almost cost me my life, but things are looking up. Glad to see there is a thread about this issue, it's a difficult one for many to understand.

Talking

I was diagnosed bipolar 13 years ago. After countless meds and countless hospitals.. Keto+anti-inflammatory+meditation has me managed with a higher level of functioning than meds ever did. I feel cured most days. It's only been a few months but I've got an opportunity to have a life I only could dream about.

I don't know what in doing exactly these days but I'm just trying to be as healthy and self directed as possible. I suppose you could call this part of recovery.

Anyways, I love everyone that would bother to read a thread like this. If you are struggling, are approaches beyond meds thst will work for some.

To Lyle in particular: thank you for being out about the bipolar. I literally need role models of individuals who struggle like this. Burning bright and having passion and being prolific are super admirable qualities

Be well everybody.

Thanks for writing these articles sharing your experiences and for bringing awareness to mental health Lyle! I've had major depressive disorder and panic disorder since I was a kid, and yeah in the fall and winter it gets significantly worse every year (and I live in the northeast).

As an aside, my wife is Bipolar, so as you can imagine our house can get quite 'nutty' at times between the two of us haha!
