I am 28 and I have 3 children. My oldest daughter is 11 and she has all the symptoms of being bipolar. Her dad is also bipolar and she is the exact clone. My problem is that I can't get any doctors to help me. They refuse to diagnose her with bipolar disorder. She is seeing a doctor and is on meds which they help about 50 percent of the time. I feel like her doctor only listens half way but he is the only one that believed me that there was a problem. I guess my question is if anyone knows what I can do to get her properly diagnosed and if there is a better doctor out there that will actually listen to me. Her rages are very drastic to the point where she tries to dig at her face with her nails. I need to get her some help that will actually work so that she is happy again. We live in North Georgia and I can't stress enough how serious this is. I am afraid for her.
