Psychiatrists Vs. GPs

This link gives great reasons why someone with bipolar should go to a psychiatrist and not a GP. I made that mistake when I thought I only had depression. I took only an antidepressant, which made my hypomania worse. Later, my mission companion suggested I had bipolar and I went to a psychiatrist. He diagnosed me with bipolar after witnessing my psychobabble. (Such a nice label for me talking; I didn't like the label, but I got the right diagnosis.)
