Hi. I've had depressive and hypomanic symptoms since I was 8. After decades of psychotherapy, antidepressants, and tranquilizers, I met a mood specialist who changed everything. It took more than a year, but she finally arrived at a diagnosis: bipolar 2. Scary! I started Depakote and it was magic. I've subsequently added other meds and had CBT & DBT with good results. I have been stable and reasonably happy for about 4 years. I'm here to keep it that way.
