Hi adk,
<br />
<br />It sounds like you are reporting symptoms that are common in attention deficit disorder. You did not report hyperactivity, but it may be that you are experiencing predominantly attentional problems. I am concerned about the head injuries because they may be exacerbating your attentional problems. I do not believe you have a bipolar disorder, but I do believe there is certainly a possibility of ADD. I have the following recommendations: 1) Go to see a neuropsychologist and have some neuropsychological testing done. Your head injuries may be impacting more than you realize. 2) Follow through with the medication from your PCP, as this may help with your attentional problems.
