What else is out there for treatment resistant patients? My memory is bad enough from lamictal (all i take) so i'm not too thrilled about trying ECT. I want my memory back. Also, why are psych dr's/pnp's so uncomfortable with treatment resistant bipolar 1, rapid cycling, w/ manic psychosis? Believe me, i know it sucks, i live with it, but why do i get turned down by pretty much every doc i call (if they call back). I feel like i'm missing something on how to find a decent doc.

side note: i'd like a real doctor who is as fascinated with bipolar as i am to take interest (even just email back and forth)... I live by OHSU and don't even get a bite on the hook. what do i have to do?
