What would be the POINT to trying to see how far you could go without help ? Help can, well, help. It doesn't bcom shizophrenia, but it can becom really srious and disabling, an there is some evidence that the longer this sort of illness goes without tretment, the less well it may respond to treatment when this is started. A "normal" phase is a good time to start treatment, as the mood stabolizers, like Lithium and others, are desined to keep on in the normal phase for as long as possible, to lessen the risk and frequency of highs or lows, and to make them less severe if and when they do turn up.
DO see a good local shrink for a proper assessment and help --- you deserve it, Mo. Why go through life as just Half a Mo, when you could be --- much Mo than that ?
