Is there any way to relieve stress of bipolar on daily basis?

Im off my meds bcuz side effects were worse than when off. But now im not controlling myself well after a year. I think i need help again but i dont trust doctors. they hardly answer my questions and just throw pills at me that they get kickbacks from the med makers. Any suggestions? If i go back on meds (inevitably), how do i know who to trust? Im going to lose my job if i dont get myself under control. ok ok, ill get back on my meds. my current major problem is my anxiety. just thought maybe someone knew ways to calm down aside from them. Lithium has been suggested before from a friend. ill look into that "hey Leese". thanks

you know you need the meds and you better go get them. what does your perception of kickbacks have to do with keeping your job? Focus on the real issue and don't get sidetracked.

What triggers you to go on the down swing? Do you even enjoy your job? Do you feel valued at your job, or do you just go in every day to make the much needed paycheck? I am not saying for you to go off the meds, it's just that I spent 5 years of my life living bipolar and I never got any help-I don't trust doctors... More

One major help is exercise....especially cardio...begin with maybe 5 mins a day...I know it's very difficult to get on a treadmill with a nasty morning mood but believe me, if you stick through the 5 mins it's pretty d**n worth it....
