I was DX’d with major depressive disorder and PTSD. I don’t have either. It was the Benzos.

I was diagnosed as borderline type 2 bipolar while on benzos and Trazadone then was tried for sleep.
Slammed on antipsychotic——one big mistake as 4 lost years. Of AP now.
Hope you get sense from your doc Trench
And how are you?..
