He's on the frugal side and says to just keep waiting to fix up the house (it's been needing that for 8 years now, crappy living in a home you're embarrassed to invite friends or family over), or to move, but in the back of my mind I wonder if I'll ever make it to those years to come. Why not appreciate life now. What's the point of stockpiling an early retirement when I don't know if I'll make it. Ugh, bad day. I used to be able to scuba dive, enjoy being in a bikini, but so many years on .. no. Lost my ass, gained a belly, 3/4 time hate work. I don't see the whole "well in so many years, we can have it better!" Will it ever come? Will meds ever work properly? What's the point of waiting in limbo when in a few years, well it just ends.

Episodes cause brain damage that’s cumulative and irreversible, drugs have side effects that are also permanent, or bring on conditions that shave our life span down even more, like diabetes, and heart issues.

    Im also terrified of the future. My now sucks, and the hope of that improving is massively dependent on new medications and breakthrough treatments.

    It fucking sucks.

    That was so not uplifting, I feel shitty to even post about this kind of stuff. But it’s real.
    to both of you. And my very best wishes for improved health and much better times ahead.

They had Kitty Dukakis on there talking about it - hoping to destigmatize the treatment.

    It sounded very promising. I think it was more for heavy depression instead of bipolar disorder, but I'm not sure.
    I didn't see it, but I have heard how much better electroshock therapy is now in a scientific journal study. Sounds promising.
