Sorry. I guess I did leave out that info.
I guess I am still embarrassed when admitting my
"condition."
My pdoc says I am bipolar2 (whatever that means).
I have rapid cycling (sometimes within a day)
with persistent depression. The depression began in my youth.
So even though hypomania is mostly unenjoyable,
the depression is worse.

Like many people here I have tried most of the
major drugs with mixed results.
I have been medication free for 9 months and
have finally realized that for whatever reason I do need help.
I guess the ginger was my last hope.

My major concerns are:
1) Am I taking the easy way out since
I haven't seen a nutritionist?

AND

2) Am I still suffering from withdrawal
symptoms even though I haven't been on
meds for a while?

I really feel the long term effects of these meds
are dangerous but at the same time I cannot
envision going on like this. Ironically , therapy
has been the most effective treatment
but finding a good therapist can be daunting.

Thanks for your interest.
