Hi brookrenwiick and welcome to ehealth:..I would get a second opinion...IMO, this assessment is given to far too many people by people who really don't recognize a bipolar person...If you have been studied for a long period of time and have been told this, then it is possible...However, a snap judgement cannot be made...Take care...
