Recently my therapist has told me that my Bipolar Disorder symptoms were linked to my Thyroid. This is because a person cannot be both Schizoaffective and Bipolar. Plus, a year ago it was discovered I had Thyroid problems.
She also mentioned the fact I might have Aspergers or be High Functioning Autistic. I would need an official diagnosis to be sure, but based on symptoms I am.
I wrote out Childhood memories, so my therapist seems to think I am both Autistic and Schizoaffective, and that I have been for a long time. The thing is that I only heard voices during my Mania.
I recently discovered that Thyroid problems can be misdiagnosed as Schizophrenia as well. I was wondering if my therapist is incorrectly labeling me as Schizoaffective.
I had strange thoughts as a child (really into imaginary worlds), but that might be linked to my Autism. While all Schizoaffective symptoms since then have been linked to my Thyroid.
I will not see my psychiatrist until September to talk about this, but I want to be ready to really talk about it. (I only see him for 15 mins)
Is it possible that I am just completely misdiagnosed?
