Found out today that my 20 y/o difficult child bipolar daughter became enraged and O.D.'ed when her boyfriend tried to get her to help pay for the apartment rent. **shakes as she types this** She had been wasting money from her brand-new job on frivolous things -as usual. She began throwing furniture and scared him so badly he left. At that time she took a huge overdose of psychiatric medications. He came back later when she would not answer the phone and found her throwing up and listless, rushed her to the ER. In hospital and will be transferred to psychiatric hospital in a couple of days. I don't even know what to say except I just had to tell somebody. She and my husband just called from the hospital (which is five hours away-he went up there and is helping sort through everything while I nurse my elderly mom who had surgery today!). difficult child was all perky like nothing had happened. She tried to minimize it to the psychiatrist who came by but he was on to it. We are at our wit's end. Maybe she has to hit rock bottom in order to start climbing upward. We have been recommended a psychiatric doctor in that town for her who specializes in patients who are resistant to treatment -he is a neuropsychiatrist. Don't know much about this field. Thanks, you guys, for listening.
