Re: Suspected Bipolar 2. Feeling really stupid.

There’s no reason to feel stupid...only a qualified doctor (psychiatrist) can evaluate you for bipolar disorder. In my opinion, a mood chart can be helpful ... but the first thing is to see a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

I have bipolar disorder 1 and I’ve found that I’ve had issues with concentration, distractibility, focus, etc., that have some similarities to ADD.

Follow your gut instinct and if you do not like the psychiatrist, go see another one. Describe your symptoms and your concern that you may have bipolar disorder. Let them know about any meds you are on and any other diagnoses (such as ADHD diagnosis). They will take it from there.

Keep us posted!
