This is good, very good! A way to diagnose which disorder a person has will allow doctors to prescribe the correct medications!

I know this certainly would have helped me when at the outset, I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) and prescribed antidepressants. Since I actually had bipolar 1, the antidepressants pushed me into a full blown manic phase.

This diagnostic method would have correctly identified me as having bipolar 1 and I would not have been given antidepressants. I would have been prescribed mood stabilizers and who knows, I may never have experienced full blown mania!

So this will stop the misdiagnosis of people like me. This is good!
