Thanks Serefena. I did speak with his case worker this morning and he's going to try to get him into see his psych next week instead of the end of the month. All our fam doc can do is up his meds at this point and I think i'm going to try to push for him to go into a mental health facility where they keep you in for as many days as needed while trying out new meds as I don't think these ones are really doing much. He's really angry lately and we're getting the brunt of that - not physically (just to clarify) but more with his short temper (yelling) and bad mood. This is just weird for me because now that we HAVE a concrete diagnosis to BP - whereas before he was still getting tests done - it just feels like , ok, this is it... now all the stuff i've been reading about
to try to get as much knowledge as I can is going to be put to test and practice
