We had difficult child's appointment. today. psychiatrist was saying what an awful time of the year this is for many with BiPolar (BP). difficult child really got angry-swearing, fake hitting- when I was telling psychiatrist about all that has been going on. psychiatrist told difficult child he should be angry with him not me because he has to ask the questions. He even told psychiatrist to shut up (he really likes this guy and I think didn't want him to hear any of the bad stuff). psychiatrist asked if I had come close to calling the police on Sunday. I said if husband had not been able to intervene I may have had to-I was glad I didn't as we were out of state. For now we will be trying an increase in the Topomax. I'm hoping that will help-it really did in July.
