Hi,

I have just found this forum on google. I have been diagnosed with bipolar, not sure which kind. My pdoc prefers to refer to it as bipolar affective mood disorder and tells me not to get too hung up on what kind. My moods rapidly cycle and I am still looking for stability.
I am hoping to communicate with other people who have similar probs.

Bipolar affective mood disorder is a bit of a mouthful! You can call it anything you want and I must admit I change it from person to person depending on what they understand. By pdoc do you mean psychiatrist? Rapid cycling is a pain in the backside and I still cycle at least 12 times a year even with mood stabilisers. Other people do level off remarkably well once the medication is established. There is a section for people with bipolar but all the members tend to roam around a lot here! It's a very sociable place! :welcome:
