My psychiatrist seems to think I may have Bipolar 2 and would benefit from staying on the anti psychotic and anti depressant medication I am on. I was put on the anti psychotic meds after my PP in Jan 2013. And then the anti depressant some months later for post natal depression. This was after my 4th child who was born in Jan 2013. ( I had PP after my 1st child but never medicated, and was completely well after my 2nd and 3rd children).
To be honest I have never felt better in my life than how I have felt since being stable on these medications, about Jan 2014.
I have been writing a book about my life and using my diaries as a guide. It became obvious that I have always struggled with low moods through my life but I could always blame it on my surroundings, until my life became a very positive one and I still had trouble with low moods.
I would be interested to hear from anyone else who has been diagnosed with Bipolar 2 since having PP. Or anyone who has stayed on the meds because life is better than it has ever been before them.
