Ok, knowing that ADD is not the only mental health issue also puts a different spin on things.

From personal experience, I know that bipolar meds don't completely stop mood swings, and counseling is very valuable in learning to recognize one's own mood swings (and thereby mitigate the damage that they do).

And I'll stop there.

***Yeah, and I saw my shrink last week. She said, "you look fine, you sound fine." I told her a little of the family drama. Not a new story to her. She told me, "you take care of yourself and you take care of those girls."

"And, I'll see ya again in six months. If you need to see me sooner, you know my number."

So, yes - I know how to manage my swings. And, I am BP 2, so my swings are not that drastic any way. Do I sometimes mess up when managing my mood swings. Of course. I am a fallible human. Even 'normal' people have bad mood days . . .

And if I were such a BIG MESS, wouldn't she want to see me weekly or at least ONE a month? She pushed it out as far as she could. Some of the meds I take, you can only get a six month supply of . . . before you must see your shrink again.
