My counselor, whom I have just started seeing, told me today that I am not bipolar, that in fact all my symptoms may be ascribed to "learned behavior" that can be "unlearned" if I try hard enough. I was formally diagnosed as being bipolar 2 back in 2005 by a psychologist, but have never had any formal testing done. I get really excited about things, start them and never finish (like jobs and school), go through very "up" periods where I shop like crazy and feel very happy, and and have crushing periods of depression when I wish I were dead. I am being treated by my doctor as if I'm bipolar-zyprexa, paxil, xanax. Could it be that I'm not really bipolar after all? You guys know more than I do. Please tell me what you think. Thank you.
