Phillipa,

I don't really think I am bipolar. One pdoc said "maybe a possibility." The last one I saw (before the research guy) didn't think I was bipolar at all. I've been depressed for years. I think the research guy thinks I am atypical. I re-gained a LOT of weight the last couple of years because of depression and all the stress. And I wouldn't have qualified at all for the rTMS study (which I didn't get to actually do) if I had been bipolar. It was a resistant unipolar study.

Eventually I will probably get to see a pdoc, but it could be many months. If I can convince insurance to pay it, I'm limited to their list.

I may have to pay the entire costs of meds even if my Internist writes the RX. It could take a month or more to get in to see the internist. Sorry, fighting a migraine now and no meds to stop it! LOL Tylenol only does so much.

Thank you for responding. I have been reading this site for many weeks and just now got the courage to post.

> I'm so sorry so many things are going wrong for you. I guess you want to stay away from the mental health system for insurance purposes so I can't suggest that. I guess your internist who knows you so well will be the best person to RX for you. Especially since you also have medical problems. I, too, am afraid of medications. I only trust benzos as they don't have longterm side effects. Doesn't your internist know where you might be tested for bipolar since you think you are and avoid the mental health system? Fondly, Phillipa
