This is the first site that i have found that has real families in trouble. I have a 13 year old that makes my life a living hell somedays. After reading some of the other stories i now realise that i am not alone. Some of these stories made me cry. My family are all for my daughter getting the help she needs but they don't think of what it is doing to me a single mum of 4. I have three others to look after as well . People on the outside looking in don't know what it is like or just how hard it is. I now have concerns that my 6 year old might have Bipolar II
as well. Life can be a living hell around here sometimes.

I "hear" you !!

No one can truly understand the chaos, hard work and difficulties our life is all about.......I can't blame them though, I surely didn't know how hard life could be until my 4th daughter was born.

There is great cause for hope though, my dd has been relatively stable with a good med combo for close to a year now.
A GREAT child psychiatrist is key - - not to say there aren't still tough days, but they are fewer and "explosive" times are less intense and shorter duration.

If you haven't checked out CABF (here's the link)
http://www.bpkids.org/
I urge you to do so - - they have been my lifeline.

Take care!!
