| | Definite Diagnosis
So after seeing my new pdoc since October 07 I have been going at regular intervals. At first he thought I just had anxiety and some depression (had been diagnosed for years with that) and finally thought it was bp in January. I have been on Lamictal since then and it has helped a great deal. Today I had a check up and I really wanted to hear that maybe it wasnt bp but just a bad period in my life. I asked him and he said no, they dont have a definitive test, as we all know, but from my history he thinks it is definitely bp. He is great and told me for now keep on taking Lamictal until something better comes along. I am struggling with this today. It is just hard to accept this as a chronic condition and the fact that I will probably be on medicine for the rest of my life. Just venting.
