I know the difference between the types but I’m wondering if it actually matters what type of bipolar you are labeled with. Different psychiatrist have labeled me differently and I’ve been told I have each at different times. Most recently in 2017 the state hospital labeled me NOS. But the psychiatrist I have been seeing since 2016 has me labeled with type 1.
See I wonder if it even matters because drs don’t necessarily treat the illness, they treat the symptoms of the illness.
I feel I relate more to type 2 because I am more prone to depression and I have hypomanic episodes not manic episodes.
What type do you have? Does it even matter?
Are you guys?
I’m seriously doubting my diagnosis. So many of you are doing poorly or struggling. But I feel fine! I feel normal and happy and cheerful and creative. But if I don’t have bipolar then wouldn’t these meds be making me crazy? The thought is there: I am stable because I am on medication. I just don’t know
