    Hello Pixie,

    I was diagnosed with manic depression 14 years ago and manage it pretty well nowadays.

    For me a big part was accepting I had it and coming to terms with the idea of taking mood stabilisers for the rest of my life.

    I have self managed for the last 6 years and believe my medication does help although it is not a cure.

    Last time I was ill I worked through it in 3 weeks in comparisson to a 15 month stay in hospital when first diagnosed.

    I wish you and your daughter's the best of health and happiness as you all deserve it.
    Take care and keep posting.
