The longer you wait to get treatment, the worse it will get and the greater chance that prescription drugs won't work.” That is a direct quote from a June 2012 Readers Digest article on “13 Things Your Therapist Won't Tell You.” Okay, my first thought: good thing, I can still try illicit drugs for treatment then.
I would like to say how happy I am to be blogging at the International Bipolar Foundation! Happy is a very interesting word because it indicates that you're in a good place...The International Bipolar Foundation IS such A GOOD place. Especially if you deal with what else, Bipolar Disorder!
