I’m dealing with a similar situation myself. I was diagnosed maybe 6yrs back as bipolar, which I thought was incorrect. Was given Lithium, didnt work and just stopped taking it and just left all that alone. And then last year I started seeing someone else and let them know I think it might ADD instead. And he agreed but my meds doctor is still trying to treat me with bipolar meds; lamotrigine didnt work, so now I’m currently divalproex.
This whole things just makes everything much more exhausting and frustrating.
