Misdiagnosis All Too Common With Untrained Professionals

Narcissistic Abuse Awareness and Guidance with Randi Fine

Many of my narcissistic abuse clients report that they had previously received a Bipolar Disorder misdiagnosis and were prescribed medications they did not need. Lithium is one such medication frequently prescribed. According to WebMd: "Lithium can cause nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, muscle weakness, fatigue, and a dazed feeling. Fine tremor, frequent urination, and thirst can occur and may persist with continued use. Weight gain and swelling from excess fluid can also occur."

This is cruel and unusual punishment for those suffering from narcissistic victim syndrome; those who are searching for relief from the painful effects of the devastating psychological and emotional trauma. It is alarming how misunderstood the effects of narcissistic abuse are and how incompetent many mental health professionals are in "treating it."

In searching for answers as to why Bipolar Disorder misdiagnosis is so prevalent I came upon the following article. I found the information valuable and want to share it with you.
