I was misdiagnosed. Seven years ago I went to a psychiatrist, miserable. I wanted help, I listed my symptoms, and she diagnosed me with bipolar disorder II rapid cycling. Fast forward from that date until now I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on meds and drs, and hours upon hours going through therapy for something I don't have. Nothing seemed to help. I'd tell my drs that I wasn't getting better, and they'd up my meds, but never considered that they had the wrong diagnosis. When I'd suggest something so brash, they acting like I was just delusional trying to get off my meds. I was labeled, and I couldn't get out of the cycle. It was awful! Finally, I was convinced that I was bp II, and I accepted the meds to the point that I couldn't function. IT was ruining my marriage, and I still wasn't getting better. Finally May 2013 I was reevaluated, and found out that I have PTSD from all the horrible stuff that has happened over time in my life. I'm finally making progress (slowly). Can I sue my drs? I'm so angry with them!

And I froze....
