Science and Dragons

I have often referred to my bipolar and post traumatic stress and the dragons inside me.  Both these conditions can be unpredictable, emotionally charged and frightening.  The most difficult thing about it is that treatment is often a science experiment.  Different drugs and drug combinations are tried and discarded until one is found that works.  This can be a lengthy and frustrating process for the one being treated.
