I've done some web research and (to me) everything I am reading about bipolar disorder just screams out what I have been going thru for awhile now. The going from highs to lows, mixed episodes, spending money stupidly, racing thoughts that won't go away, changes in engery levels (bouncing off the walls to shutting myself up in my bed and not coming out except to eat, go to the restroom and as minimal outside contact as I can have). And it's really interfering with my school work, for the last year especially I haven't even passed one class in the last year and have wound up completely withdrawing from school the last two semesters so I wouldn't have all the F's on my transcripts. I am finally seeing a new psychiatrist and I mentioned bpd at the end of our session and he said he hadn't heard anything out of me that sounded like it, however we would discuss it in my next session over a month from now. I realize it's somewhat my fault as I wasn't 100% truthful with him (it was my first visit I had to know if I could trust him... and I'm 100% sure I can now). So how do I explain all of this to him next month when I go back to see him?
