Serafena I am not honestly sure I am bipolar. Or maybe i am bipolar in denial lol. I take nothing now but my mood swings and mania seem more connected to my period then anything. I honestly believe its hormonal and now that I am done being pregnant I am going to peruse that angle. When I read about
premenstrual dysphoric disorder it seems to fit so close to the same symptoms of bipolar which I was diagnosed with by a pdoc, that I am not sure if he is correct. It seems more like instead of being a rapid cycler I am getting symptoms about
2 weeks before my period which is more like PDD then Bipolar. I had actually posted here way back asking if anyone had ever been told they were bipolar then looked into PDD (the ladies obviously). The reason I also think this is when I was pregnant I had no mood swings at all, no mania.. nothing.. but now that I am not I am getting them again.
I donno... I guess I'm confused and torn but either way I am just living with it O' Natural :)
