I’m an idiot. You would think in all my writing and all my doctor appointments, I would have realized bipolar 1 and manic-depressive disorder (or manic depression) are one and the same! On the other hand, my memory is very bad so I may have known this somewhere along the line.
This is why I get confused:
Doctor # 1 said – You’re bipolar
Doctor # 2 said – You’re major-depressive
Doctor # 3 said – You’re bipolar 1
