laura, don't give up hope. i was diagnosed bi-polar 7.5 years ago, and am just next week talking to my therapist about "why things aren't getting any better?" i would suggest reading the book, i hate you, don't leave me. VERY good. inspired me to confront my therapist/doctor,about my lack of progress. the book gives you facts that you can use in fighting for your cause. if your therapist still doesn't agree, and you STILL have that nagging feeling that this could be the answer, find someone who is willing to try a new approach. what could it hurt? in mental health you HAVE to be a squeaky wheel! make sure that YOU are satisfied. good luck to us!
