Life has no guarantees...I have bipolar type, schizoaffective disorder. It took 11 years for them to find meds that worked/stopped the suffering for me, and now they aren't working well anymore. I was first diagnosed 20 years ago this year.

It has been a roller coaster ride, and I've never liked roller coasters...

Hopefully, she will take care of herself and her child to the best of her ability. Hopefully, she will do as her doctor prescribes; hopefully she will attend support groups such as www.nami.org. But, as I said, there are no guarantees...
