Thanks so much for your references, I really appreciate it. I have been suspicious of my diagnosis for a long time. The depression part was blatantly obvious, but as for the manic part, I think I was diagnosed in haste by someone unwilling to revisit the situation. I spoke with my family doctor and the minister (and former counselor) who married me and my husband before I decided to go through with reducing the medication. I've taken it slow and am off of 3 of the 4 drugs reducing over a period of about 7 months. The Depakote is hardest for my shrink to agree to and I am being careful not to burn my bridges. But she's so controlling that she makes working with her as opposed to serving under her difficult. She said I was one of the most compliant patients she ever treated before this spring. Oh well. I fully accept that I may have recurring bouts of depression throughout my life, but I don't want to continue on maintenance drugs I don't think i need.

Thanks again for your info, I relaly appreciate the time you took.
