    "This Too Shall Pass"

    Sometimes when you're suffering from symptoms of your illness it seems like you're "stuck" in the situation. Something that may be helpful is to remember that "This too shall pass." Because, thinking about it, eventually these moments do pass. Just a quick tip today. : ) HTH. Jonathan

    Feeling more unwell than usual

    Think it's a combination of factors, i don't feel well. Wonder if it's a good idea to see the GP & increase the medication again, but i don't really want to. Always seem to go through these patterns where it feels like i'm on the verge of another breakdown, but it does seem to pass. Crappy...
