A. Hey Johnson,
It is scary to see yourself in times you are lacking control, but you do know what was happening at that time and you are now at an advantage over this illness. Knowing is half the battle. There are a lot of things you can do to control this illness and live a full and balanced life. Take your medications as perscribed and be patient with the process of finding the right combination for you. It can also be helpful to seek talk theropy. Try to get plenty of excercise and sleep, meditation can also be helpful. Trust in your ability to be well and work towards it. You will be okay.
