I was seeing a psychiatrist after a bit of a breakdown a bit back. Mainly just rapid mood swings and increased anxiety. She was real quick to assert
that I "wasn't to get into topics of aliens, the mayans, 2012, etc", when I never even mentioned anything to do with any of that.
She was sort of poking a bit of fun at other clients I guess, cause she mentioned how some hear voices, think aliens are talking to them, etc.
Honestly, I wouldn't listen to them if I were you, unless this website is the cause of what you're feeling. You should have an idea.
Exploring all these topics just further educates me or helps me form a better opinion. I also have bipolar and was more prone to breakdowns prior to
the mood stabilizer. Avoid ADs at all costs. Now I'm just experiencing the same sort of mood day-in and day-out, and sometimes I sleep in too much,
well, all of the time, but I'd rather be taking these meds and be able to cope than feeling as though my moods are shifting 40 times a day,
preventing me from doing anything productive. Bipolar can be mistaken for a few things. ADD, Schizotypal, Borderline PD.
But, please don't get caught up in the symptoms and medical definition game.
It's not worth it, and the entire field has created too many names for too many things that share far too many symptoms, imo.
