I really can't answer that for you. I think that would be a question best asked to your pdoc. Best luck to you.

Thanks AFMom, tis true. I really was only grumbling on about my moods and the dx's I can collect like a prize winning pig collects ribbons at a county fair.

*sigh, again*

sparklehorse, Afmom is correct in that nobody can diagnose you except your pdoc. This would be a great topic to bring up at your visit with your pdoc today. I just looked up the definition of Bipolar II in the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision. If you've had at least one hypomanic episode, then you are Bipolar II. But do talk about this with your pdoc today.
