  • Hi Bunn. I totally get what you’re saying. I truly wish they (meds) worked for me. It’s such a nightmare. In 22 years, nothing has helped (so far). Or, if they help even slightly, I am left with horrible side-effects. I’m getting tired of this. Even the thought of seeing yet another Psych doctor fills me with dread. I am sure that I too, will end up back in the hospital soon. It gets worse and worse. When I read this article, it brought me a bit of hope … maybe it is something, maybe not. Heck, maybe it isn’t even an affordable option. I must research more. You’re absolutely right, there is definitely NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.

  • Very interesting article. I’m also an American living in Germany. Since living here, I’ve had my second diagnosis for bi-polar 1, rapid-cycling. I didn’t believe the first diagnosis 21 years ago, and it took time to accept this latest one. Off-and-on meds for so long … many didn’t help … many had terrible side effects. At the moment, I don’t take any meds. Needless to say, I am suffering greatly as the illness is getting worse with the passing years. Talking to (or even locating a doctor) is EXTREMELY difficult. My German isn’t so bad, but when it comes to this illness, I can’t articulate what must be said, in the German language. Plus, I live “am Arsch der Welt,” and finding the right doctor is proving to be a problm. I’m going to research this method of healing further. I am a firm believer in not stuffing my body with medication anymore. As I said, it has never helped, and the entire process is a complete nightmare. I really hope to find relief soon.

    I wish you continued success! 🙂
