      I don't even know. I was in severe depression for 9 months and only had small moments where I felt okay after getting on latuda (I don't suggest this med because of the 350 cal requirement and I had the side effect of severe drowsiness, I now having an eating habit of eating right before bed) Now what helps is working on building habits (the book atomic habits helped get me on track)

      Were you diagnosed with bipolar 1 or 2? Because that really changes things

      Mindfulness really helps. It is a necessary skill whether you are on medication or not. Journaling can help you start to learn mindfulness. I highly suggest going to therapy too. Medication can help, but therapy and medication together is best.
