Can severe PTSD present like bipolar? Like if someone is experiencing extreme frustration/entrapment, gaslighting, etc. for extended periods of time (leading to C-PTSD), can that manifest in a sort of mania or psychosis? And how can that person get appropriate treatment?
Edit: meaning — if it looks like bipolar but actually isn’t, would the treatment be the same regardless? (Or can someone actually develop bipolar from extreme stress?) And/or how does a patient try to explain that difference when they’re constantly dealing with under-qualified professionals, say in public health systems...
