"Dealing with my disorders..."
#1
DLD helped me realize my problem by being so up and honest about his problems!! Thanks DLD.

Anyway I'm dealing with bipolar depression and social anxiety.
Seems like my bipolar depression is getting worse by the day.
I remember around 4 weeks ago, I've gotten more done than the past month. I mean WTF!!

Today I literally stayed in bed the whole day because I was fucking depressed and my bipolar disorder makes me always fucking tired and gets me stuck in the negative frame of mind.
Being depressed also makes me lose my appetite and I can go for the whole day without eating much. This is starting to affect me physically and I'm having a hard time gaining weight.

I don't want to go on any happy pills and I hate it when people tell people with bipolar disorder to go see a fucking shrink or psychiatrist.

So I'm going to try and go forward with natural remedies.
I'm going to order GABA for now. I hope it's going to make me feel better and allow me to go forward.

If you guys can tell me some natural herbs and supplements that helps battle anxieties and depression I'd appreciate it.

I've read somewhere that because of greedy companies who want to sell happy pills in association with the gov't, natural remedies haven't been researched to the extent that it should be for bipolar people.

Anyway I hope GABA helps out for now until I find other supplements and ingredients. Ciao.

Kava Kava can make you kinda chipper. Fuck St. John's Wort... that shit doesn't work, at least for me it didn't.

I could be evil and admit that Vicodin usually puts me in a good mood....but well, you know.

I've been on Prozac (almost killed myself...got the scars to prove it)

I've been on Celexa (didn't work at all)

I've tried Paxil (gave me the shits and massive, sharp stomach cramps)

All of the above (except Vicodin) totally cancel out your sex drive. The main problem with Vike is that it's illegal, addictive, and it makes it hard if not impossible to cum during sex.

For all the crybabies...I'm not condoning illegal drug abuse. My recommendations of painkillers are with my tongue planted firmly in cheek.

There's also the magical herb...but different people react differently to it. It could help or make it worse....not sure. But of course...that's illegal too.

I can relate to what you are going through as I was once there. I did try all the natural remedies then with very little success. I feel the same as you as far as therapist are concerned...I never could stand someone telling me what my problem was when they really have no clue to who I am. This left me with a pile of issues and no one to get help with them.

What I needed to do was get very involved with my treatment on many levels. The first thing I had to accept was I needed medication. I did not want to have to do this but things were becoming to hard for me to handle with out it. I am FIRMLY against any type of "happy" pill as you put it. Those types of medications end up hurting more than helping and in the end you are ussually left with the same probles and a drug habit.

There are some very useful medications that help enpower me to take the steps I need to live a better life but by themselves they only give minimal help. I know my disorder, O.C.D., is different than yours and the medication I take is not going to be the same as you, I am only giving you my story. I found that PROZAC works very well to help my O.C.D. but it was not enough. I also added an antipsychotic called SEROQUEL. This combination is extremelt effective and helps me take charge of my life.

In addition to my medication I also need to practice my cognitive skills on a daily basis. I have a few therapies that I have developed that work very well for me but again these may not help with your disorder. (check DLD's Place on the site) I did allot of research online about my illness and I joined a user forum that gave some good advice. I was able to come up with a plan that was much better than anything I could get from a psychiatrist and today my life is bareable.

Ask for allot of help and get really involved with your treatment.

Man, becareful as hell with those presricption painkillers. That euphoric feeling can become addictive and goes away as your body gets used it. Then you cant stop because alot of those pills are basically heroine.

Just look at Rush Limbaugh, he started on oxycontin and eventuallty he was popping up to 30 pills a day everyday.

If I was in your situation I would seriously consider to try smoking pot and see if that helps. Pot can give you confidence and appreciation of life which sounds like what you want.

Pot will get rid of that not wanting to eat feeling. And don't forget, marijuana grows on this Earth just as natural as a apple tree. But in my opinion its taste even better. Pot was here before us so how much more herbal and natural a substance could ya ask for!

Speaking of apple trees, pot will make apples taste better even.

Weed can also cause paranoia...just make sure you procure only "kind" bud if you can.

Oxycontin ain't all that... I've tried it. Whatever. If I were Rush Limbaugh...I'd be popping pills on the daily too. Heroin is way more powerful and addictive.

Well the effects are very similar to heroine and has been proven just as addictive.

You might be thinking of oxycodone which is similar but not as strong.

If paranoia bugs you, just smoke and just watch TV in a safe controlled enviornment when you know noone will be home for a couple hours and above all relax. Light a candle, grab a bottle of water and watch your favorite movie.

When I smoke, its like my daily vitamins. I dont go to work high but I do just about everything else stoned. It gives me piece of mind and sometimes is the only thing that keeps me sane. I Penis Enlargement stoned, make dinner stoned, and on the weekends get hammered.

Amazing.... Drugs make me miserable.

The only thing I can handle is alcohol and it makes me quite violent and depressed. :(

How can you go through everyday life with pot?
I can't handle walking around a fog and feeling all cloudy all my life. It'd make me insane.

Were getting slightly off track here but before I get back on topic I want to give you my 2¢.

I am a recovering heroin addict. I did not wake up one day and stick a needle in my arm either...it started with painkillers. I am not going to front here, nothing feels beeter than being high on heroin...NOTHING and this is the biggest reason I tell people not to get involved with painkillers. Painkillers eventually became nothing to me. I started with VICODIN orally, then went on to Penis EnlargementRCOCET then on to MORPHINE and ended up shooting up HEROIN. It worked for a while, I was able to go into public and my O.C.D. was barely noticeable but eventually things got very bad. My tolerance became so high that even HEROIN was not working anymore and I shot doppe just to function. Needless to say all of my O.C.D. issues came back 10 fold and I was in a much worse condition...not to mention broke. I have been sober for over 4 years now and things are finally falling into place.

My biggest advise is to look into the proper, non-adictive, psych meds that are available for your illness. Research them and ask allot of questions.
