wow....that 4.3 years of feeling well after the first episode is pretty much dead on for me. But this relapse I've had for the past 9 months or so has been a real monster and my sypmtoms have gotten worse....but with additional medication I'm at least appearing to respond to treatment. Therapy is helping too.View Thread
I don't have seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but in the grey months I find this to be helpful. Since bipolars tend to be more depressed in the winter I thought ths maybe helpful for some. I use it and it has a comforting feeling. Just don't look right at it, have it shine in the room you are in!View Thread
