I stopped cycling the first time they gave me lithium. The result was that I got stuck in an unrelenting depression. The doctor who got me well the first time withdrew antidepressant treatment when I became manic. When I relapsed into depression two months later, he decided not to treat me with the drugs that originally got me well. Instead, he tried Prozac, which had just been approved. The story becomes more complex, but the result is that I never responded to that same treatment again.
The measure of achievement lies not in how high the mountain,
but in how hard the climb.
The measure of success lies only in how high one feels he must
climb to get there.
