After a lifetime of dealing with cyclic depression, I was diagnosed with Bipolar II.
I have been dealing with a major depression for more than year, brought on by bad business decisions that wiped out my entire retirement savings.
It’s difficult because I am 73 years old, and need to rebuild my life. Have any of you experienced major losses as a result of Bipolar II?
How did you deal with the resulting depression or loss of meaning in your life?
Have any of you had Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy for the depression stage of Bipolar II? If so, do you recommend it for symptoms so closely tied to circumstances?
Do you have other suggestions?
