I was mistakenly diagnosed as clinically depressed for over 10 years. I was taking Zoloft. I felt nothing on it. When I changed health insurance and doctors they pointed out to me that Zoloft doesn't work like that. It's not supposed to make me feel nothing. And that I'm most likely bipolar. After seeing a therapist who confirmed that I am in fact bipolar, I have decided not to go on medication. After my bad experience, I'm going to try to control this on my own. It's hard. It's been a crappy couple of weeks. But seeing how many people are registered on this discussion board and knowing how many more people out there are bipolar. Doesn't it seem that maybe doctors are quick to diagnose people as having bipolar disorder? That we just throw this word around very easily? It seems as if some people use it as an excuse. When my therapist and I were discussing symptoms of bipolar disorder it sounded like a lot of people I knew. Did we all have bipolar disorder? Or maybe this is all "self-induced"? Maybe we can just stop....
