Thanks for sharing your experience with me. As a matter of fact, my own psychiatrist called me today to make sure I was okay, and to let me know if I start slipping (losing sleep is NOT good for bipolar people) that I could call him any time day or night - he's been with me for five years - probably saved my life, and is a major reason I'm still in Atlanta. And you're absolutely right about the mind/body connection - I was just telling my parents that I thought getting back to himself would go a long way in terms of compliance, honesty with the medical staff, and generally doing everything he needs to do to get well. It's so good to know that there are people like you out there who understand the misfiring neurons and synapses and amino imbalances and all that good stuff. Makes me feel a lot calmer to hear from you. Big hug.
