Hey all. I am here just to kind of ask a question.
I have been being treated for panic disorder for nearly 12 years. Recently, out of nowhere, my pdoc prescribed me with Abilify, and is labeling my condition as bipolar. She has taken away my meds that help with the panic disorder, aside from Klonopin, and Ambien to sleep due to my insomnia.
I guess my question is, I don't see anything in me that is bipolar. I do get mood swings. I get angry at the panic disorder. I get happy when I am not having a panic episode. I get sad when I have reason to...I AM HUMAN, and I thought these were emotions.
I don't know if I am in bipolar denial or what, but I feel that my pdoc was quick to make this diagnosis and for no real reason.
I guess my real question is what are the symptoms, I guess, of bipolar?
Thanks in advance...and I apologize for my frustrations!
