Hi all, I have been suffering from bipolar disorder since April 2014 when I was 17. I had regular appointments at my GP and they diagnosed me with depression and put me on fleuxetine 20mg. These didn't help at all so in September 2014 I was put on mirtazapine 30mg I find these help with depressive episodes but no nothing at all for controlling my mood and mania episodes. My doctor has been promising me a referal to a pshychiatrist since April 2014 but every time I confront him on this or the other GP's at the surgery they tell me that they do not want to put a label on me because of medical insurance and the army etc, even though the army is not an interest of mine. I keep getting told "you will feel better when the sun comes out" I feel like I'm being fobbed off and nothing is being done to help my bipolar other than an anti-depressant. Can anybody help?
