Like bi-polar or schizophrenia? Assuming you use protection and birth control like the nuva ring every time.... I am bi-polar with some not so positive life experiences. But I am beginning to control the cycling with a minimum of medicine. As well as taking medicine all at one time instead throughout the day and night which is annoying (taking it throughout the day). I think these diseases are real but manageable with practice as well as a desire to feel happy and positive. One thing that has helped me recently is adopting a technique used by soldiers....By simply making the choice to not focus on fear and failure (or in their situation dying). Not nullifying emotions but simply not focusing on that part of a situation because it is something I don't do.
