How do you all manage just... the ups and down? Especially when your brain tells you, "you don't need to take the medication anymore! you're all better now!" this is my third time restarting my meds, because I keep goofing up.

    I simply remember how I feel off my meds, and how I feel when I take them. I know that I feel better on them, and I need to take them to keep feeling that way.

    Like the individual above said, I remind myself of how I was off my meds. My depression was dominant for most of my life until symptoms of bipolar and hypomania became more prominent. my mood was so unstable, I was angry all the time.. I don't want to feel that way again. And sometimes it's hard to remind myself when I feel so so good but I manage. it's become a habit now everytime I begin to think I should go off my meds
