Hi to all on this thread,

There is such good evidence out there regarding the efficacy of fish oil; it seems silly not to try it... I prefer the Carlson's brand b/c it is pcb/merc free and tastes like lemon... I also throw a couple of tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil into my morning fruit smoothie too.

The subject title really is a recipe for mental wellness for me. I have struggled for 10 years and it seems as though I have finally gotten it right.

Regardless of the meds that work out for people, I cannot dismiss the crucial role the other components have played in my road to mental health. I cannot emphasize the importance of nutrition enough. I have never been a health nut...I am still far from it!!! If this junk food, carbohydrate, caffeine Queen can cut down then anyone can. Seriously.

Before I forced myself to eat right: no soda, limited caffeine, fruits and veggies, organic dairy products, no empty carbs and only the best meat (organic, grass fed, cage free...etc), I was an up and down, mood swinging night mare.

I was never big on working out...I was blessed with my mother's metabolism, so I never really had to...I am still not a gym rat...but I do walk 30 minutes p/d....any one can do this...if this is all you do, it will still help you mentally.

EMDR has sped up my psychotherapy ten fold. After all, my shrink has had to undo decades of warped perceptions and unhealthy knee jerk responses...all due to the lovely pinging of chemicals in my head.

My MD got me to take Geodon b/c he is very aware of how suspicious and resistant to change most BPIIs are...he took out the product insert so I couldn't read it...it does say it's for schizophrenia...and said it wouldn't hurt to try it...so without an RX and the product insert...I had no scary info to read...one day I was having a meltdown and decided, "what the f***k and popped the pill. Well, it worked...insta happy, normal, even keel.

Everyone is different but I cannot say enough about this drug and the stability it has brought me.

Good luck to everyone, I will continue to post and share my progress...it's only been a couple of months on Geodon but it seems to continue to work its magic.
