I am on Topamax and Lamictal. I hate the stigma of being labeled "mentally ill" (by my in laws) and am on it for anxiety. They think I am on it for bipolar because when you google it thats all you see. Can anyone tell me differently? There has never been a formal diagnosis of anything. My inlaws and I have been fighting for a very long time and I have written some mean emails because of my feelings towards them, hence their calling me mentally ill.

And get this, my husband has also looked up the medications I am on and has concluded that I am bipolar. He has done his own search and thinks that I am mentally ill and agrees with his parents. I am a very high functioning person. I run my own successful business, run my household with a toddler, volunteer with 2 organizations, and recently finished college with a 4.0. Its making me so mad that these people are labeling me due to the medications that I am on right now. Isnt it possible that I am on them due to anxiety (which they have helped me tremendously in that department due to the amount of stress I am under!!!)
thanks for your help. Happy new year
