Hi, I've been seeing a psychiatrist for two years with symptoms of depression, anxiety, paranoia and highs with extreme spending which have led to me facing bancruptcy.

Today he referred me to a social worker and said he can't work out if my highs are from a rash personality and impulsivness or a high from bi polar, I'm getting very frustrated now especially as I'm on a downer.

Past meds have included depakote and abilify and today I've been put on quetiapine but I havnt got them yet so don't know the dosage, on the bottom of the letter I saw he had written ' diagnosed with mood disorder' is this a condition by itself or not I'm confused.

Well 31 views and not one word of advice or encouragement!

Thought this was a forum for help? How disheartening to feel ignored, that will teach me to share things on a forum.


Cheers. :cry:

I think the term mood disorder is like a term for many mental health conditions that affect the mood itself such as bipolar. It is really frustrating being down thats where I am at at the mo also. I hope your meds kick in soon.

hey am i sane don't feel down on it, a lot of the time i see posts then come back to them when i'm able to think of a decent reply.... will be on here later and hope to have more to say to help you, i am going through similar right now. Have you been diagnosed bipolar? that shrink sounds a bit incompetent maybe you should have a second opinion that's what i'm waiting for right now? it may be you're in the wrong branch of help, i don't think a social worker is gona be helping with your mental health . later, promise x
