I mentioned in my daily post that I started social rythm therapy today. It has made me quite anxious but then, I don't adapt to change well. Have any of you tried it? Did it work? Did you like it? Are you still doing it?

San,

This came from psych central:
Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy developed to help people with bipolar disorder . Its focus is on helping people identify and maintain the regular routines of everyday life — including sleep patterns — and solving interpersonal issues and problems that may arise that directly impact a person's routines.

Here is the link with more info:

I have to keep a regular routine and schedule out my entire day. I am also keeping a thorough mood chart.
