Firstly, I have yet to be convinced that splitting Bipolar into these particular sub-types is particularly useful, and Bipolar II seems to have become the routine diagnosis in many practices. Bipolar 3 I don't recognize. Maybe your psychiatrist could explain the differences, and give you some textbook references to describe the condition he's referring to.
