I would like to tell you four things that worked for me.
I used to have severe mood swings (I was diagnosed with manic-depression), and pharmaceutical anti-depressants and mood stabilizers and
anti-psychotics did not work for me. I am not saying that they don't work for everyone. I know they work for a lot of people! But they did not work
for me...I tried tons of them, and saw many, many doctors and psychiatrists, but none of them worked.
This is what did work for me:
1. I changed my thyroid medication from sythroid to Armour thyroid. In fact, to be honest, my moods did not start severely swinging until I changed
from Armour to Synthroid. Only when I changed back to Armour, did I start really really getting better. Be sure to have your doctor test you for
thyroid problems, because thyroid problems can cause severe depression. And synthetic thyroid (synthroid) doesn't do the trick. Natural thyroid helps
a lot if you also have depression!!
2. Self hypnosis and creative visualization
3. hypnotherapy (especially regression hypnotherapy)
4. Homeopathy (finally, in the end homeopathy cured me!) For more information about homeopathy and depression, read the book Prozac Free.
Best of luck. I know, depression is miserable. I suffered through it for years, along with the mania. The depressions were terrible!! The only
medications I take now are my Armour thyroid, and the occasional homeopathic remedy, and for the most part, my life is much, much better than it ever
Although I still have this pesky interest in conspiracy theory that I can't get rid of. (But I consider that the result of a curious mind....not a
Seriously, though.... I really hope you feel better soon!
