A contributor to our Bipolar Blog recently shared her story of living with Bipolar II and how a vegan diet along with 5-HTP and exercise helps her maintain mood stability. That got me thinking that it might be interesting and helpful to hear from others about what works (and what hasn’t) for them.
We’re all on a bipolar journey, and everyone travels a different path. Hearing what works and what doesn’t can often keep others off dead-end roads and provide shortcuts to more effective treatments so they feel better sooner.
Please share. What’s your diagnosis? What works for you – medication and non-medication? What hasn’t worked in the past?
Note: This is just for people with bipolar disorder. On Thursday, family and friends of those with bipolar will have their chance to share.
