Manic? MomO3

I hope you don't mind me jumping back in, MomO3, but your description sounds VERY manic to me. I may not be BP but I've had two good friends who are & it sounds quite like something they would've done when they were manic.

From previous posts on this forum, there's many who say & feel themselves, that BP & ADD can co-exist. Having one doesn't necessarily rule out the other occuring too.

Learning for yourself what you might have isn't a bad thing at all. Jumping to conclusions a little too soon is though. As you said, you did a "little research" that you presented to your doctor. While my ADHD would have me jumping on a diagnosis for myself, it would also have me researching it to 'death', backwards & forwards. Because you're perhaps not ADD, but instead BP, you didn't look further. You saw something that fit you & seized on it. I tend to get a little too obsessive & overdo it. You may instead underdo your research.

I wouldn't stop reading & trying to understand yourself better. But be hesitant about concluding what you may have till you have lots of info & evidence for your doctor. But your description certainly sounds manic. Is there any other diagnosis that would fit such a situation? I'm not sure of any myself.
