I was cured once

I came off meds and was well for 4 years without meds. Then what happened??? I thought I was well like everyone else and tried taking drugs. Big mistake. I soon relapsed.

I hope the above post helps someone if they get off meds. The damage is already done to your brain and all it takes is something to trigger the illness to come back.

I’ve met 2 people with bipolar disorder that did the same. One had been well without meds for 13 years and the other 4 or 5 years. Both smoked cannabis, relapsed, and ended up in the hospital. It’s not worth it.

I was off meds for 2 years. Didn’t do any drugs and just ended up back in hospital. It’s not a matter of if, but when, once you go off meds.

i have gone off meds a few times and every time I’ve relapsed but my brother is bipolar and doesn’t take meds but smokes a lot of weed claims it cured him. He is abusive towards my parents.
