I have been on (properly diagnosed) meds since January of 2008. While there is still a fair amount of tweaking going on because I am young (26) and that's relatively new for bipolar, I am very happy I am on meds.

Prior to meds, I was rapid cycling, mixed states, cutting, drinking every night, and hyper-sexual. Yes, there have been times since where all of those symptoms and more have popped up, but they are being MANAGED and not spiraling my life out of control.

With the help of my doctor and my family, I finished college on time summa c*m laude with a double-major, a certificate, and an honors thesis. I found a job within four months of graduation and am now attending one of the top ten law schools in the country in addition to working part-time [although I'm about to quit to focus on school]. Without meds, I am certain I would be dead or have been involuntarily institutionalized.

Caveat: there is more to my success than my morning and evening cocktail of pills, but I feel the hurt if ever I miss them.
