> i agree with you. the guy is a top pdoc here, funny as hell...what fluid labels...he dx'd me borderline, histrionic, and bipolar II, and said that the prevailing dx would be bipolar II because i'm "good company." he grinned.

It's funny to joke about it, but when you consider that a lot of doctors are going around giving patients diagnoses based on whether they like them or not, it becomes clear that there's a serious problem with the system. (Although I have to admit that a lot of bipolar II folks are, indeed, good company, some of them aren't; that doesn't mean that they're bad people or that their illness is their fault or that they don't "really" have bipolar disorder at all.)

I have to admit I'm sort of curious who your doctor is. Is he actually affiliated with HMS, or did he just go to school there?
