In reply to maybe a dumb question...., posted by floatingbridge on April 25, 2010, at 1:55:22

> I thought mood disorder encompassed everything, like depression, anxiety (that isn't a mood disorder?), bipolar variants--and then, okay, question number two, are 'personality disorders' (an infuriating term) also mood disorders?

well, as per the world of DSM...mood disorders and anxiety disorders are separate categories, so are personality disorders.
major depression and bipolar disorder are both mood disorders
much, I believe, overlaps

> And sid, I was afraid to have a child--I put it off until the 11th hour of my biological clock. He seems to be o.k. People say he's a happy camper. Of course I worry--I've eaten up many therapy hours discussing the well-being of my child--but that's mostly because of my self-loathing and low self-confidence than my actual parenting. I'm beginning to see that now :)

congratulations :-)
I'm trying to figure out if I should be concerned or unconcerned about going off meds with the goal of getting pregnant.
I suppose there are no concrete categories, no absolute answers, and there is just the doing of it that is left. We shall see...
thanks,
sid
