No meds help me, I have been in the psych system since 14, i go to therapy, I have a safe life with little drama.  Still my mood swings are terrible.  I just want to be "normal."

    Have you tried horses?  New research shows that they can really improve your mental heath.  I want to do it, but paying for my son with aspergers to go.  I can see how nature and animals can help.

    You can meditate?  I try to hard, but my anxiety is a mess........

    Who says what is normal?  We are, we just have active moods :)

    Normal is a lie. Normal is different for everyone and we're all screwed up...some of us are more honest with our feelings than others.

     I'm in the same boat as you honey. No matter what I do, nothing seems to work. I'm almost ready to just give up.

    This is a great idea! My cats are my saviors sometimes. Horses, to me, have the douls of people. But I believe any pet can help. Truly. Other thsn the freskin' zanax that I dont want, my pets help me so much.

    jalex, have you tried starting at any farm in your area that opens to the public? zJust to look and pet? Sometimes looking into into the eyes and stroking there noses is therapy withou the cost. I know Halloween time is big in my area, but I know some well known farms here that I wouldnt hesitate to at least csll and ask to visit.

    I really hsve no advice thsn what others have said below. I wish I could help as your questions and comments on my posts have helped me think hard about stuff. So I want you to know that you are not alone, I, and Im sure many others, feel as you do now. We need to reinvent "normal". We are unique. We are special in a positive way. We, on this forum, are all down with our crazy crap, but who says we arent normal and just have crappy luck in conquering life. I relate! I want to enjoy life!! And it is lonely and shitty that we dont. Someday, it will be our turn. I believe that with my entire being. Hang in there.
