Dear Dr. Schwartz,
I am a 31 yr old women that has recently been diagnosed Bi-Polar 1. Upon my diagnosis, I am now taking a tegretol based drug and in pscho-therapy. After four meetings with my therapist, she feels I am suffering from Post traumatic stress disorder (due to self-sabotaging events in my life) from the loss of my mother at six years of age. First of all, how could I have PTSD at 31 if the event occurred at 6, and secondly, how is this treated?
