My boyfriend and I are wanting to get engaged but we of course want to discuss the important matters first before that next step. We know we want children. Biologically and adopted. But we both are concerned about parenting with my Bipolar II disorder(hypo mania comes as spurts of irritability/agitation but most episodes are depression related). I want to be the best mom I can be, despite my illness.
So to bipolar mothers, what have been your greatest challenges in pregnancy/child raising? What have been solutions? Share your stories and tips with me. It will bring my boyfriend and I much peace to receive insight and support, thank you!
