The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Finally I knew I had to do something before the psychiatrist appointment, so I went to another clinic and asked a doctor to be my family physician. He prescribed me a mood stabilizer (Divalproex/Depakote).

Almost immediately the self harm and the desire to cheat stopped. That was nine years ago. If for no other reason than that, I will take Divalproex (or something like it) until I die. The med made me feel like shit, but it helped a lot too. For the first time since I was a kid I was able to sleep like a normal person. Now the Divalproex has no side-effects at all, although the normal sleep wore off.
