I also am a mother of a son with Bipolar Disorder.I know the concern and the worry and heartbreak that goes along with seeing one you love so much, suffer so badly.My precious son is 27 years old and even though he has not actually made an actual move to harm himself (swallowing nails) he does constantly threaten to harm himself so I do live in daily concern that he might which is terrible.I do not know if you have found the problems I have found with professional help or not but when I tried to get help for our son (at the time he was actually threatening suicide) I was told by the Drs. that it was none of my business because my son was of age.They wouldn't even talk to me about it!!! I finally, in desperation, wrote a letter to his counsellor to tell him what bad shape our son was in so he could help our son before he did harm himself and ---------
the counsellor told our son about the letter and told him that they didn't even have to talk about what was in the letter!!!!
I guess when a child is over age the parent isn't supposed to care anymore about what they do to themselves! One minute he is 'high as a kite' and the next minute for no reason at all he is 'in the pits as low as a person can go'. He also has ADHD and OCD and possible Tourettes too.I have terrible 'cluster migraines' constantly so as you can probably figure out--the two don't go very good together. I have news for the professionals though!!! I am a mother who loves and cares for her children deeply and it doesn't stop just because they are over age. I would never have made it through without the blessed Lord !!!!! We had 4 with ADHD in our home and 1 with ADD. Even the dog had ADHD!! ha! ha! This is true!!!!
Please knoe that you and your son will be in my thoughts and my prayers!!!! I wish you both the very best!!!!
