I can understand your point of view. I have been dealing with this for many years even though I have only been diagnosed for a few years. It has been more challenging the last few years. There have been more episodes of depression and they are harder to deal with. I too have spent a lot of time going to Drs appts and therapy appts. I am having a hard time right now so I can understand when you talk about it being hard to do house work. It's the same thing I experience.

I can understand your frustrations of going up and down and not getting balanced out. I know I have good days and bad days. Hang in there and sending hugs to you.

I am currently on Depakote, Abilify, Klonipin, and Clonidine. There are certain meds out there I can't have due to my other disability.

All I can say hugs to your way.
