then theres a few of us that pdocs dont count as bipolar as we only have had a couple hypomanic accounts and that was due to certain meds.

for about the last 6 years or so pdocs have cut out bipolar dx(given a few times they counted possible 'mixed' episodes) but otherwise if cycled between psychotic depression, aggitated depression and just MDD.
Even i hesitate, though i do feel i am mixed many times i dont know if what i feel would be called Mixed episode or aggitated depression brought on by severe anxiety.

also every 'mood stabilizer' ive been on Makes me feel bipolar in that my moods tend to cycle every three days or so down up, etc.

ive long since given up on dx and just deal with symptoms.
i know i struggle most with anxiety, next depression. i hardly Ever deal with hypomanic issues.

************************
and as one with a mental illness i would agree and say sometimes its just not worth it and go off a med due to side effects whatever they may be. hoping for at least a slight reprieve before i have to try a new medication.
i've already been on 30 meds for whatever reason were stopped. most meds just dont work well for me.the few that have poop out after about a year.

and its only been 9 years since dx.
