What is the problem with Psychiatrists in diagnosing ADHD in adults and continuously tagging bipolar to it? Is there a prescription company run on Depakote or what? Or is it they don't want an old lady to go Ritalin fast? I know Beer does not work! Ha- Ha. Of which seems to be their major complaint back to me..Seems to me a whole heck of alot of people in this world just wants that darn pay check without their educated doctorate degree of an educated professional guess of what lurks in our minds, and then asks what pill do you want? I TOLD THEM A CASE OF PILLS THAT MAKE PROFESSIONAL JACKWAGON'S DO THEIR EDUCATED JOBS; THAT THEIR EDUCATION TAUGHT THEM TO DO! HEY DRUG COMPANIES CONTACT ME ! AND THIS IS NOT A HA-HA.. signed the old lady that lives in the bat.( this signature should really confuse those doctorates and the doctorates at the drug companies!) And this is without beer..hick-up..

Another Pun against the Doctorate Society-"Send them to school and they eat the books!"
Topic: Anti-Tobaco Bands within Cities and now even in your own Rented Dwellings Folks!"
1- It has been proven that tobaco smoke is harmful to the human body and by no means is this an o.k.to start smoking yourself!
2-These smoking bands, especially when the INSURANCE FIRMS ARE CONCERNED IS A PLOY FOR INSURANCE REDUCTIONS ON THE CITIES AND HOUSING PROPERTIES PREMUIMS, AND NO OTHER!
2-Tobaco smoke washes off paint and lighting fixtures with water and soap. And these enities that the Insurance companies target for these insurance premium percentage deductions, are the same entities that do not take care of cockroaches, bad housing living situations. And-
3-The Cities that DO NOT REGULATE THE WORSE INHALED POSION OF THEM ALL! CARBON-MONDIOXIDE POISON!
4-IT'S YOUR CAR THAT YOU DRIVE THAT WILL KILL US FASTER THAN TOBACO SMOKE!
5-Roll down your window while driving through your city. I DARE YOU TO! and take a big breath! I DARE YOU TO!
5-AS FOR ME, I WOULD RATHER RIDE A HORSE!
That is your Doctorates of today, your professionals out of the dollar greed, at YOUR EXPENSE.
BRING BACK THE HORSE! WE DO NOT NEED TO TRAVEL ANY FASTER OR WE WILL SPIN RIGHT OFF THIS PLANT,OR FOR SOME, THIS WOULD BE GOOD, SINCE WE ARE SO OVERLY POPULATED AS IT IS..
What's your opinion?
Signed: the lady in the bat..
I'm gonna remain on-topic and attempt to answer what seems to be a question about adult an ADHD diagnosis. I don't percieve there to be any sort of patient/doctor conflict in terms of a mis-diagnosis of bi-polarism as opposed to ADHD. The main concern is that there is no specific criteria to lead doctors to believe it is one or the other. Based on my own experience, and a battery of memory and comprehension 'surveys', along with several counseling and interview sessions, a doctor made a judgement for me as to what I was suffering from. This turned out to be ADHD. This was in no way a big stamp on a piece of paper certifying me of an ailment with an immediate trip to the pharmacy for a med that was being pushed. Instead, there was a trip to another psychiatrist for a second 'quality assurance' check and a prescription for a suggested med. Since then there have been regularly scheduled appts.
with both psychiatrists and psychologists to track progress should the treatment not be working. Several times I even suggested to the docs myself that I may be bi-polar and was assured it most likely was not. Fact of the matter, today I am well and happy and have full confidence in the psych community. If you are having issues, simply see another doctor for a second opinion. Hopefully this will ease a little frustration for you. There is help for you, but you have to put forth a little of your own effort.
First off--love the old lady that lives in the bat. Great diatribe, all of which is so, so very true.
A Psychiatrist who can't tell the difference between ADHD and bipolar is one that you do not want to see.
You need to take a series of test, cognitive, oral, written, etc. that helps, HELPS, not determines what your "problem" is.
The only thing that comes to mind is that when Bipolar is the correct diagnosis, there is a blurry line as to having ADHD or if it is just part of the Bipolar itself.
That's about all I can say.
Long live the old bat lady! Just kidding.
