Hi 4 of 9, welcome to the board. I hope you find some community and good listeners here.

So what do you think? What's your opinion? And what kinds have doctors have you seen? Family docs? Psychiatrists? Perhaps a third opinion is called for... There are different levels of bipolar -- it exists on a spectrum, as any psychiatrist worth his or her salt will tell you, so someone who meets some of the characteristics but not all, may just fit lower on the bipolar spectrum. Check out the link I posted for auroara in the Bipolar II thread earlier.

Again welcome, we're glad you found us.

Hello 4 of 9,

I too wanted to welcome you to the forum. I agree with Serafena on what she wrote in the other post. It describes the different bipolar types. Hopefully things will work out soon on your end. Please keep us updated and do not hesitate to post on other things.

Best Wishes!

4 0f 9,

are you any kin to 7 of 9? (if you miss this reference, don't feel bad. it's from star trewck voyager.) I was first diagnosed with basically the same rx. i didn't believe it, so i asked a couple of psychiatrists (shrinks) that i know what this diagnosis meant. all three of them told me that this is a non-diagnosis and in generallly used then the dr eitheher doesn't know exactly what is wrong or just doesn't want to cope with the dsdm.

in addition to the psychiatrist, i was also seeing a psychologist (apparently statistics show that patients rtespond better with both chemical and talk therapy) who confirmen my friends' opiunions. he and i pulled out his copy of the dsdm (the "bible" for diseases) and went throgh the list of symptomd for psychoaffective and bp. i met almost of the criteria for psychoaffective but almost all of the criteria for bp. if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, would you call it a duck or chopped liver?

i hope that my experiuences help you. the important thing at this time is to stop your hemmeraging and get you on the path to wellness. ask any time. we at healingwell are here for you.
