Racer,

I was able to talk to my T about all of this today. He didn't really agree or disagree with the dx (although he said he's never seen a manic episode). He suggested that perhaps my GP was trying to dx through prescribing different medications and when we find what works, that will give us an "official" dx. I don't really feel comfortable with this method, especially after hearing that some SSRIs induce manic episodes in bipolars. If that is the case, I feel like he's playing with fire if he truly believes I'm bipolar.

Anyway, while I do believe my GP was genuinely trying to help (maybe I'm a bit too trusting?), I'm going to find a pdoc that will spend a little more time with me and we'll go from there.

Thanks for your post,
All Done
