I am officially diagnosed with ADHD and GAD. My therapist mentioned today that I should consider the possibility that I may have Cyclothymia. When I was in high school (about 13/14 years ago) my dad took me to a therapist who said I had "boderline manic-depressive disorder" though never actually made a diagnosis. I've had severe mood swings for as long as I can remember though never really put much thought to it until I started working on my MSW degree. Since I've read the DSM and PDM I'm fairly certain I have some form of bipolar. Is it possible i was misdiagnosed with the ADHD & GAD? I'm extremely fearful of getting diagnosed and how it will effect a future career in social work or my relationships with my husband, children, and family. Does anyone have any insight or helpful words to share? I don't know how to tell my husband or family about this either.
