Sorry to hear about your mothers condition. I truly am. My father as I may have mentioned had bipolar as well. During a hypomanic phase, he lost his job and my mother divorced him. He was a little better afterward, but never fully functional in society. It seem may of us with bipolar parents are treatment resistant and as you mentioned this is could be largely genetic. Heck, I dont see some of my treatment responsive patients needing to meditate, avoid coffee, avoid all EtOH and quit their jobs to feel marginally better like many of here feel.

I guess I was being melodramatic last night. In my late 40s, I feel like this is my last chance to take a big treatment gamble to finally feel close to normal, integrate partially back into society. But I know the odds are against me.

Maybe I should play devils advocate with my paralyzed doorman analogy. I wouldnt ask a someone with a psychotic affective disorder to stop their meds and just do yoga. Or my hypertensive patients to throw their meds away and just get good sleep. Lifestyle maybe is far from the panacea. Maybe this is the answers to my question and I have to accept any treatment gambles will ruin the 25 years of small gains I have achieved :(

Sorry

PCB
