If I were single and not a mother, I might try to live life without the AD's. I have a responsibility to my family NOT to ride the frantic emotional roller coaster ride. The highs were followed by crashes. I've already put my son through too much worry, my WHOLE family too much worry.

But when I don't have meds, I just self medicate any way be it alcohol, pot, exercise, food, you name it. So while you're having fun riding the dragon, I'm using well researched approaches and trying to stabilize my life with God given gifts to medicine. Would you tell a diabetic to cure himself using meditation?

All this I can understand.My kids are grown. I have lots of time alone to be myself, then can keep it together in public if I have to and stay home if I can't. I had a real problem with meds. I felt like there was plate glass between me and the rest of the world. Sleep felt un-natural and waking life felt somewhat robotic. I didn't feel joy or great sadness. I missed that.
But we each have our own paths, and mine, right now is to suffer so I can also have the treasures and the adventure.Maybe in a while I'll get tired of life "out here" and go back on meds(club med?) for a vacation from all this work.
