Hey you guys,
I have recently signed up for health care here in Indy and have pretty much been accepted. I'm going to start looking for a psychologist because psychiatrist(sp) are not covered. How were you guys diagnosed is my question. I have read up and taken medical online test from webmd and other such sites all also pointing to bipolar. I just found out that my biological father was bipolar which made our thoughts seem even more correct. Do I just walk in and tell them I think I'm bipolar or what? What can I can and cannot tell them? I mentioned in a previous post that I had been put in a ward twice, the first time because I said the wrong thing and the second because I attempted suicide.
I see things all of the time, when I was younger it was spiders and now its death maybe me killing someone, myself, or me dying in some freak accidents. Yesterday I was at work and I just saw people hanging everywhere around me. I hear things all of the time, telling me to do things to myself or to others are other horrific things. My point is what of this can I mention. I cannot risk being in another psych ward; I can't afford it I'll lose my job and I'm trying to save for college my life is too hectic to worry about that but I want to be honest to the point what ever the hell is wrong with me I can get it fixed.
I'm sorry it's so long my basic questions is how were yall diagnosed and what can and can't I say?
