The following is the section of the survey that seeks to understand what solutions people are trying. We want to gather enough information for the researchers but make it simple enough for people to easily complete the survey. We also want the questions to feel relevant for everyone, including those who are against psychiatry or are otherwise ambivalent about the labels associated with our conditions.

Please chose 'Other" when clicking through the survey so you can see that it causes a new text box where people can put their own words in.

Please use the comments section at the bottom of the page for your feedback. Any feedback is welcome including, but not limited to, better wording, new topics and questions, more or less choices, etc.

Section 2: Attempted Solutions

This part of the study focuses on the solutions to the problems identified in Step 1.

Please share your thoughts in the comments below. We really need your input to make it better for everyone.

    I think it’s important to put how many years You have had BiPolar disorder. I was diagnosed 30 years ago so I have been a ” guinea pig” many times. I took the medicine because of desperation.

    • Thank you for there feedback Janis. We will definitely add how long to the survey.

  • Janis Ratza says:

    I took the test but left out my most helpful solution. The course taught by Tom Wootton has given me hope and I am gaining the tools to live a much better life. I see BiPolar in a different way (without fear). I look forward to going deeper into the different ways to handle it. One of the slogans is ” pain is inevitable but suffering is optional”. This is my achievable goal.

    • Thank you Janis. We will have to make sure Bipolar IN Order is listed as one of the solutions people can choose in the final study.

    I really like how we can contribute to the survey options! Thank you so much 🙂

  • Dancing has been incredibly helpful for me, and I’ve been attending Ecstatic Dance for years. It’s been a joyful way to alleviate depression. Perhaps adding that in addition to music therapy would be good?

    Also, one of the most impactful ways I improve the severity of my states has not only been nutrition, but also supplementation. Perhaps adding a supplementation or herbal medicine option could be beneficial in addition to homeopathy and nutrition? Magnesium has been a godsend for my anxiety, insomnia (thereby limiting the onset of my mania by improving my sleep), jittery legs, ADHD and depression. Fish oil and bone broth/collagen has also been a big help, but I take a whole host of supplements so I’m not always sure which is more beneficial or if they work in tandem. 🙂

    I read the book Healing Depression & Bipolar Disorder Without Drugs by Gracelyn Guyol and found it extremely helpful. She does mention that some people may have mood disorders due to parasitic infections, candida overgrowth, or heavy metal/pesticide toxicity, have you found evidence that this detoxification or eliminating parasites has been helpful to anyone you’ve come across (I haven’t tried to do much in this respect)?

    Also, thank you so much for your Bipolar in Order course, Tom. I’ve only been enrolled for a few weeks, but already I can tell it will be extremely helpful.

    • Thank you for your great feedback Kseniya. That is exactly the kind of feedback we are looking for and it will help us to create the best survey possible.

    I’ve attended Bi-InOrder for five years. By far, the single most useful support.learning has been from the course and wonderful people who attend and share their successes and struggles.
