This calms some down. I use this technique when I am afraid to leave my room.

Bipolar and Veterans

This article is long but explains what bipolar symptoms and depression look like in veterans.

Are You On Your Meds?

Why would anyone be off their meds?

Why people stop meds:

  • Start feeling better
  • Side effects of meds
  • Can’t tell how we’re doing Think we’re fine
  • Fear lose ourselves to meds zombies
  • Money or cost of meds
  • Fear of dependence on psych meds
  • Lack of support or sense of shame
