we all feel like running away; sometimes more often than others.  but, alas and alak, this option is not open to us.  DARN!!!!!

on the positive side, since you experience the same disease, you may be more able to recognize his moods and, possibly, head them off before they get too far.  only a thought.

i have a great deal of empathy for you and can only wish you love and patience.

Hang smart, hang tough'll both get through it...and remember if you run just have to face then what you could have faced and gotten through today. You may run away...but it just follows you. Hugs...LFW

He's in good hands then. He's starting out with someone who knows something about what he's going through, which is more than you had. BP is hard, you know it. I can appreciate wanting to run away. But it will be alright. You're doing much better and so will your son, now that there's a diagnosis of something to fix.

Be strong. (((hugs)))

My 20 yr old daughter is BP. At first I though I could not cope, but now she is very stable and wonderful on her meds. I try to view it as I would diabetes, etc. I'd much rather have BP than a LOT of other diseases. There is a lot of hope for the future of BP...the meds get better all the time. My daughter is compliant with her meds which is really a great thing. Hang in there.
