I spent so long (8 years) denying my BP diagnosis, and trying to go off my meds, or imagining the day that I would, that when I finally really lost it and was unable to deny that I'm BP anymore...I mean--

I think you might be right. It's like the placebo effect, but it has something to do with the fact that when you accept your diagnosis and start working to help yourself, both the acceptance and the effect of actively working on your sanity have a positive effect on your state of mind. Works that way for me anyway. I just wish I could get restabilized now--feel like Tegretol isn't doing it alone, Lamictal gave me a rash, everything else makes me sick or spacey or something.....SSRI's increase my agitation (uh, raging fury and anxiety, actually).....
