I love mania, and I love summer time. Why, as a result of all the daylight tends to set off mania. I detest winter and that deep darkish dampness that takes maintain of my physique and my thoughts. Don’t get me fallacious it isn’t like I hibernate all winter, I merely hate leaving the home, or my mattress for that matter. One factor that few bipolar victims understand is you can deliver that very same fantastic summertime feeling into your own home yr spherical. Yep, it is mild remedy and I adore it.
I by no means realized the hyperlink between the solar and my moods until I needed to begin protecting a temper calendar for my remedy plans and within the winter my temper sucks. I do expertise the odd manic episode, however for probably the most half I am low and depressed. Except this winter. You see this winter my psych sought out a brand new remedy plan, the magic mild, that lights up my life, for actual.
This mild is shiny because the solar, and took some getting accustomed to however it introduced me out of my funks. In reality, I’m in love with the sunshine. Even now as Spring approaches I discover myself bathing in my mild whereas I learn, and whilst I sort these phrases.
So why select mild remedy as an addition to my treatment remedy?
Well firstly, it is low cost. I purchased myself the complete spectrum bulb for round $10.
It’s straightforward. It’s not a remedy the place I need to do one thing silly for an hour or two. I can fairly actually do no matter I need so long as I maintain the sunshine close to me, look as much as it frequently and easily use it.
And, thus far for me, it really works. In all of the remedies and issues I have tried I am all for doing those that work so I do not need to attempt yet one more remedy which will or might not work. If it really works to maintain my crops in my bed room alive (with no pure daylight in any respect!) then why cannot it work for me.
There are disadvantages although like some other remedy. Too a lot of it could possibly set off manic episodes. I’m in a full blown manic episode so I actually should not be utilizing it however I can’t assist it. I really feel like I’m hooked on it, identical to my lithium and all these different drugs I pop. So I simply use it and do my greatest to restrict how a lot of it I use.
What are you ready for? Light up your mild, and temper as we speak.
