Well my gp and psychotherpist think i have a form of Bipolar. The psyhciatrist i have only seen once, and she wants to take her time with a diagnosis, so i am filling in a mood diary for her.
Myself im not sure what to think, but filling in the mood diary has shown me a bit of a pattern. It seems my "normal" way of being is really quite depressed, not extreme but bad enough that i havent felt anything positive in quite some time, life generally i have to say really is not pleasant. Then things change, im more focused on work, i have loads of great ideas. Distressingly though i feel my attitude to other people is just terrible. Everyone is stupid and beneath me, they dont matter and their problems or opinions make me angry. I would say the depression at these times is definatly less, and i sleep less, eat less and just care less about everyone but me. This seems to last about 4-5 days, then i feel the depression creeping back in.
Does this seem to everyone to be enough for my gp and therapist to be right about a concern about bipoalr 2? Im just not sure. These patterns really have been going on for a lot of years, at least 10-15 and ive always just put it down to anxiety, but its sure not improving - worsening if anything
