  1. So, last hear I went through a horrible breakup and was very stressed about my new job. I have terrible PMS and got very anxious and restless around the time of my period and then would be content and happy during the times I don’t have my period. I have always had trouble sleeping but it got worse when I broke up with my ex and I had a tendency to obsess about my ex and wasn’t able to sleep as well as I normally do (we dated for seven years and almost got married and he left me for another woman) and I needed sleeping meds. I also would have racing thoughts and I would get so exhausted I would sleep for 16 hours. So, I went to the psychiatrist and she said I had bipolar disorder and put me on lamictal. I really disliked the medication as I just was tired and after working on myself and ridding myself of my partner and building a better life for myself I have learned that I was anxious in general (which I deal with by exercising and breathing exercises) and probably get depressed at times because of life and my job (I work nights and sleep tons on my days off). I didn’t go back to the doctor after the first three times and literally I have never done anything reckless with my life or missed work or made mistakes because of this. So I’m renewing my license and it asks about being diagnosed with various psych disorders (bipolar disorder being one of them) “which impaired or does impair your behavior, judgement, or ability to function in school or work.” I want to check no because it never affected me and I’ve never been hospitalized for psych stuff at all. Could the board find out or could I face legal repercussions from this? Also, what happens if I put yes on this question? should I go back to her and get re-diagnosed? My NP asked me what I did and I told her I was a nurse and she asked where I worked and I told her just thinking she was making small talk. I am nervous she has told people about what we discussed and if we know anyone who works with me and that she may tell the board. I should have never received treatment or told her anything truthful about me. If only I had remembered this question on the renewal.

  3. Additionally, I did not use insurance to pay for my visits at this facility. They did not accept my insurance so I paid out of pocket
