He feltquite over wheled @ first but seems quite rational now, I was feeling vey sad for him @ first because has I explained to him its no different than somone saying they have a physical condition. I have always seen the mania but I've seen the depresion a little this year n its been more so anxiety really, but I trusts the doctors @ his surgery.

Is this a psychiatrist that has diagnosed him? If he hasn't yet been referred to the mental health team for a full mental health screening it would be best that he asks to do so. The mind is far too complex for a GP to make a diagnosis on a whim.

If something is wrong with your car you go to see a mechanic...............

Best of luck to your boyfriend.
