I hate to see you blaming yourself for not being able to control symptoms without meds-- you just might be trying to do the impossible.

The way I think of it is, there are many things that help with symptoms, like meditation, exercise, yoga, etc. But without meds, I end up spending nearly all of my energy in life trying to control symptoms, or hide them, or work around them. I'd rather let the meds do most of that job for me, and let my own self-care efforts take care of the rest.

One definition of spirituality that I like is that it's just expressing and growing your unique self. Depression and other symptoms just get in the way of this.

Best wishes,
