As I've mentioned before, I believe in, and have used, psychotherapy as one tool. I've used exercise as another. Diet, too. As with healthy people, life comes with challenges and issues to be dealt with. Always. These are not the things that get in my way. I am sure that my conception of remission and how life can be experienced without bipolar depression is not unrealistic. I have had brief remissions before, and the world becomes a very different place to live in. Normal issues become easy to deal with. Challenges are not so insurmountable. It feels good to work for things. Even cleaning my apartment becomes rewarding.

If you had a severe case of the flu and were unable to get out of bed or think straight and function, would it be unrealistic to expect that you would feel better once the infection passed? Would you expect to function as well after the infection as you did before the infection? If symptoms persisted, how would you know? Would you be able to remember what it felt like to be without these symptoms and live life as you did before the infection? Would it frustrate you to not be able to climb a flight of stairs because of a lack of energy and strength? Would you accept this or would you continue to seek medical treatment?
