Finally Facing It... - November 15th 2012, 07:42 PM

The title says it all.

Over the years numerous of doctors have said I hae this and I have that.. But today the most extraordinary thing happened. I saw a new doctor. And he told me the medication I was taking at 14 (fluoxetine) wasn't right for me. In fact I shouldn't have been medicated at all.

It can be hard to diagnose a 14 year old with depression/bipolar/social anxiety etc because of the constant hormonal changes. He simply told me today that was the easy option. This doctor - I could kiss him! Because he actually gave me the time of day, he listened and he didn't judge. He suggested that there is a strong chance I could be dealing with bipolar but he wants to look into it further.. Not one doctor in my life has ever been as honest as he was today and I'm so thankful.

I'm 19 years old and I'm finally starting to come to terms with who I am and what I want to do. It's not going to be easy and I'm aware of that but right now I've been given the slightest bit of hope!
