... As I read these threads I am more convinced the "suspicion of bipolar" diagnosis that my 16 year olds doctor gave her is more accurate. She was previously (for over 10 years) been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and depression. I have been medicating her and taking her to therapy for years. Still her symptoms continue and her behaviors have grown worse and more risky over the... (24 replies)

Bipolar Disorder?
May 18, 2015
... Hello I am new to this site. I am a teenager who has been diagnosed with depression and am being medicated for that with fluoxetine, as well as body dysmorphic disorder/OCD.

I am Bipolar, but I have always been able to manage my moods until lately. I take Prozac, because either way other meds didn't help. My husband is on his third deployment, and I feel left behind. I feel so alone. I know better, I... (4 replies)

... your doctors and never stop taking your meds. Also take care of your body! A lot of people, including me, forget that we have different needs than other people.

... I have been dealing with intermittent depression since I was a teenager, and I recently experienced my first (maybe second) manic episode. I am just now realizing how irrational, impulsive and irresponsible some of my actions were while I was manic. For example, I chased a pigeon, believing that I could take flight and that I would be transported to another world! These... (3 replies)
