with bipolar family members.... difficult child has told me 2 or 3 times this evening that he realizes he's hypomanic or manic (I think he's hypomanic right now but cycling a lot lately). Anyway, he says he knows he should be in bed right now but he can't sleep- he's done a pile of schoolwork and cleaned half the upstairs this evening. I've tried to suggest just laying in bed, lookiing at a book, or taking a bath/shower. He says he's tried those things before and they won't help him sleep. He said he tried just going to bed anyway Sun night and he looked at the clock once an hour all night long until he finally got up at 6:00am. I told him I could hit him over the ehad but he said passing out wouldn't exactly be the same thing. He says he'll consider any suggestions given from his board aunties.... soooooo.....anyone have any?
