I understand your confusion about how the diagnosis of bi-polar was given. What is stopping you from making an appointment with the psychiatrist yourself? You should do that a.s.a.p.
Keep us posted.
I just read another post of yours from the crohns board. You mentioned in that post that this was your first time with a therapist. You also just mentioned in this last post that your therapist said, "I would be going a lot, that I had a lot to work through".
Make sure you let her know that you want a proper diagnosis with the pyschiatrist that is on staff there.
Also be very honest with your therapist and tell her exactly how you are feeling at home. If you feel you need to see her sooner than your next scheduled appointment, give her a call and ask if she can fit you in.
As far as your other doctor, kick him to the curb. You said, (either on this forum or the crohns forum) there are other doctors to choose from in your group and I would hope that any other doctor you pick out will be better than this quack!!!
