Bipolar / Insomnia

Keywords: insomnia, bipolar
I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and insomnia at 16, but I do not remember a time as a child when I was not depressed to the point of wishing to be dead. After being diagnosed I believed I needed to be on medication for the rest of my life. I was on many different medications for 8 years. After having gained and lost and gained about 80 pounds, feeling tired, nauseous and getting sick all the time and absolutely hating going to the doctor, I decided to go off of my medication. I quit taking everything at once. After another year, I was getting desperate, something needed to change but I couldn't go back to the doctor. They would just push pills on me again and not really listen. My friend was going to her sister for BodyTalk sessions and kept telling me to try it, so finally, I did. I went once and was amazed by the results, but made an excuse of not having enough money every time I thought about going back. After another 6 months I started to go regularly. I started to think that I would like to become a BodyTalk practitioner. A year ago I took the access class, and a week later my husband enrolled me for the Fundamentals class happening in a week. What happened there was incredible. First, because at this point I wasn't actually falling asleep until 3-7am and getting very little sleep, and after my first day of class I was in bed at 8pm (that has never happened) and on the last day of class when we learned cellular repair, one of the students did the technique on my bipolar. Leaving the class I felt like a completely different person. It's been almost a year since I took the Fundamentals class and I have regular sleeping patterns now, and I no longer have bipolar. This is a simple statement, but the effect it has had on my life is absolutely amazing. I've also become a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, and have been able to take BreakThrough and FreeFall as well. I can't begin to describe my gratitude for having BodyTalk introduced into my life. I feel I am still at the beginning of my journey, and for the first time in my life, I am excited for whatever will happen next.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone at the IBA for the work you do. BodyTalk gave me my life back, thank you for making that possible.
