With the proper meds and therapy YES it does get a WHOLE lot easier. When i look back and see how out of control i was and how i had no idea of how to handle this monster, i am amazed i'm not dead. There is something about knowing the nature and name of the beast that takes away alot of its power. Knowing that i wasn't in my right mind has given me the ability to forgive myself my many mistakes and screwups. Now that i know what i am fighting it allows me to have more control and more insight into how my body is reacting to things that happen to me.
And my wife and i are doing great, it's been a long hard year rebuilding my marriage and the trust i broke (i had multiple affairs) but despite all the hard work it was rewarded with getting my life back and it's better than ever. My wife even says i am now becoming the man she has allways wanted me to be. That means a lot to me and encourages me to work even harder to beat this beast. And if not beat it than i will take a draw. LOL
A year ago i was at my lowest level, my marriage was a wreak, my work was in shambles, i was sucidial, and my family hated me for cheating on my wife. Then i got help, got diagnosed, and got treatment. A year ago i wanted to crawl into a hole and die, now the future looks great. I still have to work hard at it, but the meds and therapy have given me the tools to have a fighting chance.
Hope this helps. BIll
