The one thing that I'm almost positive that I suffer from and that no one has ever treated me for is PTSD. Read INTERESTING DREAM - Terminating Psychiatrist and you'll get a picture of why I think that. I like the mood stabilizers but I also like being hypomanic, just don't like being depressed, though I'm not sure that I'm bipolar either and think I'm depressed with PTSD but what the heck do I know. But NO mood stabilizers that dull me or have horrible side effects, I'd rather learn to live with my disease. Luckily there seems to be newer and newer generations of anti-convulsants coming on the market, so that's good. Why doesn't she want to put you on a mood stabilizer?
