When last I wrote, I was just coming out of a period of very severe depression, followed by a hypomanic episode. My medication really seems to be working now, as I have been free of depression for about two and a half weeks, and free of hypomania for two weeks. I know this journey is far from over, but it is such a relief to feel like myself again for the first time in a couple of years.
My psychiatrist formally entered my diagnosis in the EMR, and it is Bipolar II Disorder. This comes as no surprise, it is rather what I had been expected given my history, but it is nice to see it, finally.
