IN RESPONSE TO DYANE – PART 2

This young mother/former teacher lives with bipolar disorder in another part of the world. She writes under a pseudonym, and I’ve faithfully followed her fascinating, unique blog “The REVELATION of being BIPOLAR. I encourage you to take a look at it!

I got back on the Epilem and still used the Ivedal because I have gotten addicted to the Ivedal.
