I've just got home from an appointment with the primary mental health team.
We, (I) talked for 2 hours, he cameback with a 'probable' diagnosis of Cyclothymia.. I have been cataloguing my moods and for a few years and came to a probable diagnosis of Bipolar ll, I've found that sleep is always an enemy of mine, so are all of my moods.. they're always tipping the scales, always too much of one, never just right.. I've been told that sometimes my delusions can teeter on the edge of psychotic.
I'm on a waiting list to see the same psychiatrist who told me to work on my marriage (which has ended, and I have two children and we live with my mum.) and completely dismissed that I had anything apart from depression since the age of 12 (I'm 28 now) so I've been suffering for a very long time, trying up to 12 different antidepressants and very frequent trips to the GP with the same sleep complaint at least twice a month..
Anyway, Hi, if anyone could give me advice or help me make sense of the whole thing, it would really be appreciated! Thank you!
