Just wondering what are the strangest or random advice you have been given in your experience with “professionals”
Personally I would stick with the meds - if it wasn't for the meds controlling my moods I'd have commited suicide by now. So to me meds are vital. As to therepy, or alternative treatments such as accupunture, thse can help help relax you and that is good for your general well being.She still thinks that the meds might make me worse somewhere down the line. Could she be right?
This is called EMDR. It can be an effective strategy for managing traumatic memories in PTSD, a common comorbidity with Bipolar disorder. So it’s perhaps no so strange. But yeah the antidepressants for mania is just dangerous.Probably the weirdest one was the psychologist who told me to follow her finger with my eyes back and fourth so that it would reconnect synapses in my brain and unlock repressed memories. I have no interest in finding out if I have repressed memories, and she was sure I had tons, but if I did I am pretty sure that isn't how it works.
Of course there is always the popular of prescribing me boat loads of antidepressants for my mania lol.
