My daughter is a sophmore in College and was just diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, unspecified.

She is struggling this semester with her studies. The way she describes it is as a disconnect. She is studying and doing all the things she has done in the past but its not working. She has started on a medication for it and has not so drastic ups and downs but still some depressive moods and I would say she tends to be negative. She is has seen a psychiatrist of course and also has been talking to a therapist. Her therapist told her that she should think about a medical leave next semester. I dont think she wants to but Im not sure. Tomorrow I will join her at her second appointment with the psychiatrist and I want to be prepared with the right questions. Any help would be appreciated. This diagnosis is very saddening to me and worrisome.
