Haven't posted here in years after difficult child became an adult (ahem) and moved out with the first of many loser boyfriends. After deciding the sperm donor of her baby really was just the sperm donor, she and baby moved back in with me. What a nightmare! She was diagnosed with BD three years ago, and stopped taking the medications after a two week stay at a treatment facility at that time. Said the medications made her feel like a walking zombie. Fast forward three years, and now with a deadbeat boyfriend, a baby under a year old, no car, no high school diploma, a 15 hour a week part time job, and she feels like her life is going nowhere. She's ticked off most of her friends and some family members - saying horrible things - accusing people of lying, or stealing, despite YEARS of their positive support for her.... Then there's the baby. I pray morning and noon and night that God sends angels to watch over them while I am away at work, or running an errand - she expects the baby to be completely happy ALL THE TIME. Hello?!?! Babies are not happy all the time. Anyway, she's agreed to allow me to locate a therapist and make an appointment - thank God. Me - I'm up at night with the baby now. I'm at least calm, and not angry with the little one for waking up hungry, or not feeling well. Last night - four times, and she complains of being exhausted. There's so much more I could write a novel, but I don't have the time or energy. Just wondering, for those of you with adult kids who suffer with bipolar, has anything helped you?
