... advice?

At the moment I feel some relief in finding something concrete in solving my 35 year history of mental illness. Any comments accepted and I will "vote up" the ones that help me the most. Could be you want to share any of the following; was it you or your doctor that decided you have this affliction? have you had success in dealing with this and what are the meds? how about dietary supplements? Not looking for the magic bullet I have grown to know better and please no snake oil salespersons. Be positive.

Thanking all in advance
