Tuesday I had an appointment with my psychiatrist. I gave her a list of my symptoms for the past couple of months (I hadn't seen her in a long time). I might be bipolar. I have thought I had this for quite awhile because the symptoms fit, plus not long ago my auntie was diagnosed as bipolar. My psychiatrist has not officially diagnosed me yet. I need to keep a mood chart until I see her next, in September. I was put on a new medication though, a mood stabilizer. I'm not really sure how I feel about this or what to think. I always knew that I had more than simply depression and social phobia but I never knew what exactly. Who else here is bipolar? When you were diagnosed did it come as a relief to have a name for what you were going through, or did it make you feel crazy? I'm feeling both of those emotions: relief and crazy. If anyone has any advice or whatever please share them. I would deeply appreciate it.
