Manipulativeness--Is this typical and how do I handle it?
nstitches posted:
My 22 yo daughter was recently diagnosed but has had huge rage and depression for several years. It's like she becomes another person--different facial expressions, hate oozing. It isn't a multiple personality, however. She constantly demands money from me, won't do anything around the house for anyone other than herself and her cat, won't get a job and demands constant attention from her friends and her sister. She is mean. Very mean. She doesn't take her meds regularly. What should I do?

Hello nstitches, hhhmmmm this is a tough one. No matter if she is Bipolar or not she is responsible for her actions. So don't let her use Bipolar as an excuse. Her mood swings are probably a result of her not taking her meds correctly. She really needs to take her meds., regularly see her pdoc and see a therapist to help her control her anger. How to do that is a tricky one.

There is one thing that could be done. If you think that she is a danger to herself or others then you can get her admitted into a hospital against her will. Other than that I am at a loss. I'm so terribly sorry that I couldn't help you more.

I have a daughter who is 20 yrs old. I believe that she is Bipolar but she isn't on medication. She has depression issues and she does compulsive things. Although she doesn't live with me I still try to talk to her about the kind of mess she may get herself into.

From one mother to another, take care of yourself and I hope things get better.
You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)
