First of all, I would like to say I am so sorry that you are going through this, and have gone through this for so long.
I can relate. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder type I, with psychotic features, in 2001. I have been psychotic so many times I've lost count,
but I was hospitalized due to my psychosis 3 times. So, I know how you feel.
Like you, the medications also made me miserable, and so did my illness. The ups and downs and psychotic episodes were making my life hell. Even
though I was (and still am) a pharmacist, I realized that I needed something else besides pharmaceutical medications to get me better, even though it
went against everything I had learned about in pharmacy school.
What finally got me better was hypnosis (helped with stress) plus homeopathy (final cure). I went to 4 different homeopaths before I finally found one
who found the right remedy for me (I can't tell you what it is on this forum, but I'd be happy to tell you what it is if you e-mail me a U2U). I
went to homeopathy school for a year and read quite a few cases of people such as you and me (with bipolar and schizophrenia) who have had complete
cures with homeopathy.
I highly recommend seeing a homeopath. They can be quite expensive, but well worth it if you have the money. If you can't afford one, there are some
homeopathy schools around the country (there are 2 in San Francisco that I know of) that offer low-cost clinics for people who can't afford the full
I wish you all the best. I no longer need medications now that I've been doing homeopathy. It's not an over-night cure....it can take months....but
once you find the remedy, it's like you get your old brain back. I can say that from experience, too!
Someday I want to figure out how I can start an integrative medical clinic using homeopathic and pharmaceutical medications for people like us....I
just have to find a place that will let me integrate pharmacy with homeopathy.
Feel free to U2U me if you have any questions.
I know you're miserable....but holistic medicine did make a world of difference for me. Check around...you might also find a homeopath or a
naturopathic physician (who does homeopathy) who might take your case pro bono, too.
