I have been seeing a counselor for almost a year and felt it was time to consider medication. I went to a psychiatrist who prescribed Lamictal and Klonopin for Bipolar 2, Cyclothymia. After looking this up on the internet, I feel that another diagnosis better fits my symptoms.
I am asking that you give me your opinion. Here are my major symptoms: anhedonia, rage, manipulation, splitting, issues with abandonment, severe anxiety, self-esteem issues, cutting, reactions of emotion, interpersonal sensitivity, situational incompetence and issues with control.
I don't ever have times of mania.
Is this the correct diagnosis for me? Is there something else I should ask about? I just want to feel better and be able to love my children. I am not suicidal, nor do I have feelings to hurt my children; I just want to give them their mother back. What else can I ask my counselor/psychiatrist about? Thank you for your time.
