Hiya, My name isXXXXX a Mental Health Nurse. May I try to help you work through your question here?
Ok I need to ask some more questions to work through your issue here is that ok?
You have stated that you had a diagnosis of Bipolar disorder, was this formal diagnosis from a psychiatrist?Are you taking medications for Bipolar disorder?
were you presribed medications when you were diagnosed but stopped taking them?
and you have not had any peiods of depression or mania since stopping the medications?
Ok, can you think back to before your diagnosis and tell me exactly what you were experiencing to get diagnosed with Bipolar?
I want to know why you were diagnosed with Bipolar 12 years ago, how long were you depressed for? how many seperate periods of depression?Were you manic? how long for? how many periods of mania?
You cannot see my replies now?
Ok, I am going to switch to the forum view to anwer your question.
