My daughter who has Bipolar Disorder has recently been diagnosed with BPD. She takes medication, sees a therapist and psychiatrist. She is working but she has trouble sleeping even with medication. Does anyone in the New York area have a 24 hotline # that will talk to her for more than 5minutes.
I see a therapist also but I am exhausted, feeling insensitive to her at times. We have no family life because we never know how her mood will be to go out just for dinner. We have no family living near us. Honestly I don't even know at this point when she's moody, angry, etc. what it is. Bp...BPD...or just having a bad day because the rest of her immediate family has days like that too. I guess what I'm asking is how do I know what is just a "regular mood' or Bp...or BPD ?
