ADHD and Bipolar Disorder
I was diagnosed bipolar II 7 years ago and I’ve been struggling forever to get better, I kept on getting depressed and they cycled me trough so many different meds. No one considered that I might have ADHD. Then I started seeing a new psychiatrist (I moved to another city) and he diagnosed me. I’m scared of taking Ritalin, all my previous doctors were reluctant to prescribe it. I guess I just need to hear that it is okay and that I’m going to be okay.
