Em, that is really fucking awesome! I'm happy for you! I've been feeling the same way about my own Bipolar II. It's a really awesome thing to realize!

Sometimes I think back to how badly I was doing just a few months ago and I feel really terrified, then I feel so grateful that I'm doing much, much better now and I hope to never go there again.

I reckon that feeling of terror about going back there is a big thing. i find that if I don't get on top of it as soon as it starts, it kind of just feeds itself until I'm right back there. It took a while to learn that...

So, uh, Jess, this book that you linked to in the yoga thread... looks interesting. Is the companion one (The Mindful Way Through Depression) also good? Would you reccommend getting them both? Or do they cover similar things? I quite like some of JK-Z's audio stuff that my old counsellor gave me, but I never get the chance to listen to it, but I think it's time to address my depression and anxiety again.

I actually haven't read/used the depression one—it's by different authors, so I don't know how similar it is. I actually used to work with one of the authors of the anxiety one (who is brilliant and awesome and helped me get into this subfield, and her co-author is great too), and that's how I ended up with the book, but I think it would apply equally well to depression/sadness or really any emotion. All of the techniques taught in the book work for emotions in general. So I'd probably start with just the one for anxiety and see what you think. Or you could pick the depression one instead, but again, I just can't speak to that book personally.

having yer typical back from an insane vacation to places you've never been seeing people you love and mountains and the sky and a bigger bluer ocean and huge trees and real actual life depressive episode. I never before thought the trees here were small, I never complained about the heat, I never ever said florida or orlando sucked. my job and life seem meaningless? hurumph.

I don't feel like all this all that often any more (go me, right?) But today I'm having a really hard time. I'm just feeling really depressed, and angry, and I've been having urges to hurt myself. I really really don't think I will follow through, but the fact that those thoughts have even entered my head scares me so much. I snapped at M really bad (over less than nothing, of course) and now she doesn't really want to talk to me, and here I am locked in the bedroom with all the lights off hating myself.

I love you, Jeb.  I'm sorry that's happening.  I know the feeling.  You're great, though, and this stuff will all pass.

I love you too, big man. If it makes any difference at all your online presence suggests a generally high level of kickassery lately Much Love

Yes, what Brian and Miles said. And M, I know, is patient and loving, too, and soon one of you will be able to open the bedroom door and turn on the light and everything will be OK.

Hey, thanks so much everyone. I'm feeling quite a bit better right now.

(Hh, you're right--M opened the door.)

Even if you're feeling better, I hope it's not too late to tell you you're ace and all.
