Re: does my husband have bipolar?

Bipolar is just not that easy to diagnose. Some times people are misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD who are really bipolar or vice versa....it's hard to tell really unless you speak to a professional. There are some similarities....so I can see where it could appear he is bipolar. Living with a ADD/ADHD person can be challenging, so maybe joining a group or reading about ADD/ADHD to better understand it would be helpful to you. BTW, I am ADHD....sometimes if people distract me while I'm trying to watch a show or concentrate I can easily get upset. Thing is I'm older now, so I won't act on it like I did when I was younger. I understand my illness and work very hard to NOT hurt those around me. Good luck to you
