Catholics with Bipolar Disorder has a new and very important member. We have a new spiritual director and his name is Brother Steven with the Redemptorists of New Orleans. God bless Brother Steven and God bless the Redemptorists for allowing him to join our group.

Well, it's been a couple of weeks, now, and I'm feeling much better. How glad I am to get off the meds! Actually, I've been taken off two meds completely and I'm still on three: Lithium, Wellbutrin and Lamictal.

I used to think that people who went off their meds were, well, crazy! Now I realize that, for me anyway, the side effects just aren't worth it. I am less able to function on the meds than I am off the meds (so far.) We'll see how it goes.
