HI everyone. First of all, I appreciate everyone who reads these forums, if they respond or not.
I had a manic experience 10 years ago that still bothers me. I was having problems with depression, so I decided to try prayer and meditation to treat it. I would feel really, really calm, but within a few days "God" started talking back to me through voices. I became a different person, and was eventually hospitalized for 2 weeks. It took 6 months and heavy doses of risperdahl for the voices to go away. I know there are many of you out there who have ongoing problems like this,and I should be thankful my problems are under control, but I have been having problems with depression for the last 18 months and I can't help but think if I had someone to share my experiences with things might get better. I have a counselor, but he thinks I should leave the past in the past. Thanks for any suggestions.
