Manic Depressives NOT on a benzo for mania!? Triolian

RU saying the medical professionals would rather control bipolar manic episodes w/ huge doses of Depakote or the like, than spend a little time to lessen the symptoms of mania? He did tell me that he feels like his P, his caseworker, etc., seem to be just giving him the run-around and showed fear in contacting them.

I have GAD and I NEED the symptoms of anxiety masked and/or suppressed. W/o suppressing it, I'd be on the edge of performing NADLs.

I'm a little confused by your answer.

And, what IF the mania isn't even bipolar ... what if it's ADHD ... because the 'walking on the ceiling' and 'talking so fast you can't catch up' are symptoms of it also.

I'm just very concerned about a man who, as a child, was on Ritalin, on and off, then as an adult found from brothers that meth worked similarly in controlling his 'moving WAY too fast'. Then, he entered the psychiatric community and now (street clean 2 yrs) well, his being around me causes my anxiety to skyrocket, and, he wants to be in my life more than anything. And, I can't seem to let him flounder. I think he needs me.

How can I help him? Was suggesting that he call his P and say "I am nearly dysfunctional because of my high anxiety" wrong?

Tks T.

sincerely, cf
