    Saw the new Pdoc, he may be changing my diagnosis (again). To what? he's not sure. Yes apparently i'm that confusing to the medical world! The toss up is Bi Polar 1 or something depression related. I guess we shall know for sure in a month!

    I know just how you feel! I have 5 Dx's to juggle! I feel like I'm a mess too! It's amazingly hard to realize and understand that one really does have all of these disorders, and even harder to actually deal with them and work through them! I'm sorry that you are going through all of this. Big Hugs!

    good news is everytime they try something new, it usually works even if its for a few months!

    I think that's actually good! I don't have that kind of luck though, every time my meds are changed in any way, I crash and hard too! I'm glad that you get at least a few months out of the meds, but I do hope that you can find one or a combo that works for years or permanently! Good luck, and big hugs too!

    I sure hope not! You have enough on your plate to deal with! I have to deal with GAD, MDD, BP2, BPD, and Social Anxiety. My pdoc has me listed as an undecided type of Bipolar. It says unspecified bipolar in my file. I do know it is Bipolar 2, and I have no doubt about the rest, but I guess he sees it differently. Oh well!
