i am bipolar and have been diagnosed with personality disorder. I've taken just about every prescribed anti psychotic and mood stabilizer on the market! The only thing I find that calms me is a couple of glasses of wine. I have had trouble with alcoholism in the past (rehab stints), but I would rather risk that monster than be doped up on psych pills. Either way I am risking an addiction, as my personality is an addictive one, but is one less hurtful than the next?
