The desensitization procedure has been around for many years. The newest thing I have heard about is the use of ketamine for depression. It works quickly but only lasts a few days. It has to be administered in the hospital. It is in testing right now.View Thread
I don't know what you know about bipolar but it is a life-long disorder. If you are lucky you will find the right meds for you which will control your manias and depressive episodes most of the time. Please recognize that if you are doing well on medication that your bipolar hasn't ended but that your meds are working so you should stay on them.
I suggest that you read a few books about bipolar. The first one I would suggest is Bipolar for Dummies. It is clear, doesn't assume that you know anything when the book starts, well written and accurate. If you want to read a life story, then I would suggest An Unquiet Mind about a psychologist, Kay Redfield Jamison, who has Bipolar I.View Thread
