mixed episode?

Posted by sar on July 30, 2001, at 22:41:19

in the past months i've seen 2 pdocs who dx'd me as Bipolar II, "mixed state" almost immediately. The first pdoc was an emergency doc and i was drunk at the time, v. happy + talkative but there because i was terribly suicidal.

the second pdoc is kind of a big cheese in my big city. he's seen me both sober and drunk and dx'd "histrionic, borderline, Bioplar II mixed states." That seems like a hell of a lot of diagnoses to me.

Elizabeth said above that the BPII is kind of a fad in her opinion, and if there's any truth to that then i don't want to go on Depakote if i don't need it for my "impulsivity."

my family and one close friend do not believe that i am BPII, but these pdocs (who don't know me well) do.

Can anyone describe a "mixed episode" in great detail to me? pretty please...(and add what meds you're on)
