Hey there...Im just wondering how many of you had PPP or very severe PPD (mixed episodes etc) and were given a "bipolar" diagnosis only to wean off of your medication and remain well with no other incident?
I do not think I have bipolar, before postpartum I literally showed no signs of this, I only ever had an anxiety disorder.
Im not even sure of the legitimacy of bipolar 2, and how much of that is just high emotional reactivity and anxiety.
Bipolar 1 was never suggested for me. I did not have PPP truly, I had a mixed episode of agitated depression postpartum.
