Hi and thanks for reading.
I have been not right for many years and have been considered shy, outgoing, alcoholic, caring, depressed, anxious depending on what day you ask someone. I haven't had alcohol in years because I was told my conditions would clear up if I stopped drinking and took antidepressants but TADA! No they didn't.
I've been told I have major depression, acute anxiety, PTSD and only recently bipolar 2 however on reading, I think more likely to be Cyclothymia? I have been on a certain medication for years and it only really brought out hypo's mainly as well as some depression relief.
How do you get a proper diagnosis when it appears Australian psychiatrists (including Lancet published specialists) can't seem to agree with what's wrong?
