The cycles between mania, depression and remission often overwhelm those who live with bipolar and depression, keeping them from functioning at their best.
The lack of functionality during deep depressive episodes and highly productive manias may have a negative impact on those still living in dis-order. Many who struggle report:
Most people just want the frustration and confusion experienced during the episodes to stop, yet in spite of having tried everything they find themselves having no lasting success. This is why the Bipolar Advantage programs exist. We help those who seek to create a better life for themselves and those around them.
Tom Wootton started Bipolar Advantage in 2003 because the results being offered for his bipolar condition were unacceptable. What started as small gatherings of local people who shared the experience of extreme states grew into an international online program that has helped thousands achieve a better life.
Does remission work? Perhaps temporarily, but in the end we must admit that the answer is no. That is the conclusion of the biggest research on bipolar disorder ever conducted by the National Institute Of Mental Health. The research is called STEP-BD and this is what they say:
“According to the researchers, these results indicate that in spite of modern, evidence-based treatment, bipolar disorder remains a highly recurrent, predominantly depressive illness.”
In other words, even if remission did temporarily stop the depressive or manic states, it will not remove the bipolar symptoms permanently.
The Bipolar Advantage Online Program is the only one producing results worth talking about. Which is why we are so passionate about sharing it with the world.
While other methods focus on trying to create remission (which has been proven to not work), the Bipolar Advantage Online Program's focus is on learning how to thrive DURING manic and depressive episodes.
Those who achieve remission inevitably end up in crisis the next time it happens. Those who learn to thrive never have to worry about their next episode again.
