Over the last and a half I have been diagnosed by several psychiatrists. A hospital psychiatrist indicated the following: "recurrent major depression, severe without psychotic features and obsessive-compulsive disorder with perfectionism". The psych. that I see on a monthly basis and have seen for a year or so has indicated that her diagnosis is "severe chronic depression with obsessive-compulsive traits." A third psych. diagnosed me as having "atypical bipolar spectrum disorder, with most symptoms mixed." Is it common to have several different diagnosis? Are these three diagnoses basically the same?
