Have a disorder your self and trying to raise kids and not let it affect your daily activites is a very hard task. Most people have a type of bi-polar mainic where they have happy spells or on the other hands they havedown days. Do you have any of these days? how do you handle them withthe kids? Do you worry your kids will get bi-polar as well?

I am a bipolar mom, I now that i need to be on some kind of schedule, for my daily duties. I find it hard to collect a list of task and write them down on a daily To Do. I have always had problems from jumping from one thing to another. I have found that if I can just focus on one area or issue at a time I will get more done. My children are 2 and 4 and I have not noticed an signs of bipolar yet. I started showing signs in my teens and no one could figure out how to help me. I was not diagnosed until I was 30 and had 4 suicide attepts under my belt. The good thing is that if my children have bipolar I will be able to be more understading of how they feel.
