I just wanted to take a sec to intro myself here. I am a mother to 3 darlings. My oldest is BiPolar (BP). He is 10 and was diagnosed with a mood disorder when he was 6...specified as BiPolar (BP) when he was 8. He is on 3 medications right now...Depakote, Ablify, and Klonipin(for anxiety related to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)) and while he seems to need all of these medications, he seems to just get worse. It is hard to explain. He can control himself, but he becomes more and more rigid the older he gets. I am so worried about him in his teen years. My other 2 children don't show any of the same issues as my son, so I pray this has skipped them. It is very genetic in my family, so I can only pray that they will escape this. I worry about what will happen to my son. Will I wind up with a child living at home with me forever? Will he be able to have a normal life? I get so sad when I think about it.
