Can bipolar disorder be controlled without meds?
I have a hard time staying on my meds because my husband doesn't understand my need for them (he believes I should be able to get control without the help of meds) and financial reasons. I am on disability right now and when I get my disability I have to pay bills with it. My husband works and we're struggling to get by, so I hate to ask for additional money for medicine. I want to go back to work, but I'm having a hard time getting employers to give me a chance. I feel my husband blames me for our financial situation and this is causing me to feel more depressed. I'm currently not taking my meds (cymbalta and abilify), my counselor is suggesting prozac because its more affordable.
