reoccuring manic episodes/no meds
I haven't taken meds in almost five years and that was centered around being hospitalized.
Recently i have been suffering from what I think is an intense reoccuring manic episode.. I am joining this board just for some help or advice or some sort of support group.
I have been off meds for 5 years but I think due to having a very stressful job (which I was just fired from due to my actions spurred by these manic episodes) and an unexpectant occurence in my personal life I am having the hardest time lately dealing with my illness.
Some sugguestions/advice would be great. The thing is I am very against meds and do not want to resort to them. I am taking a few weeks before looking for another job to try to get myself back together. I am also condsidering going for SSI because I just don't think I can handle or hold a job. I am 27 and still live with a parent because when I had a roommate, the stress of it caused me to get ill as well.
