MopeyJittery Posted April 28, 2009 Share Posted April 28, 2009 Hello, world! Hello crazyboards, anyways. I've been lurking here a while, and I figured it was time to de-lurk. Stumbled across crazyboards when I was trying to figure out whether a recent simultaneous depression and panic attack was a dysphoric hypomania of some kind. I've since decided that it doesn't matter so much what you _call_ it, it's most important to get it treated properly so it goes away and (hopefully) doesn't come back! Been on the med- go- round for years, and have recently resigned myself to the fact that I will need some form of treatment for this for the rest of my life. (I would only consider coming off meds if I was confident that holistic/ behavioral interventions were keeping me stable, which is years away if it ever happens.) Would like a long remission, but have accepted that I need to keep an eye out for episodes beginning or getting worse even if I'm not feeling too bad at any given time. Plus I need to be really careful about excersising, eating right, having a regular sleep schedule, and all that other stuff that doctors tend to recommend to everybody, but for me the consequences of not doing that stuff can be a bit more immediate than for most people. I like the irreverent attitude on display here. A sense of humor is no "cure" for any of this stuff, but it sure makes things more bearable.
