Too many labels: If you have bipolar disorder you can eliminate the depressive diagnosis because it includes that. The only way for a diagnosis to me made it with the help of a mental health professional. Please see on to get the support you need. Peace and good health. Medicine alone is probably not enough. Cognitive behavioral therapy may help also.
