I saw my psychiatrist today, I was glad to report that my moods were stable, I have not been suffering from depression or mania - ever since getting off of the Lamictal.
I did however tell her that I still get bouts of paranoia and fears.
She told me that the paranoia and fears was separate for my bipolar diagnosis.
I pressed her and asked her why I still have these fears and paranoia.
She told me that it could be part of my personality and upbringing as a child - She told me that more medicines were not the answer at this point.
I have a feeling that both my psychiatrist and therapist are leaning towards a personality disorder - I am guessing Paranoid Personality Disorder? I was fearful and suspicious of everyone as a child even.
I wonder if Paranoid Personality Disorder is common with bipolar - I will have to check it out.
