Hi, I believe my married daughter who had a baby in March could be bipolar. She has always been moody and doesn't keep friends. She has to be in control of things and people. She does make things up about herself and people. It's a long story, but after she stopped talking to me and crushed me to the ground after being so close and doing a lot together and talking many times throughout the week. I believe it could be this. She has POCS and had to do fertility to have a baby. I have not seen the baby much, and it's killing me and my husband. My husband caught her in a lie, her husband accused me of something and then my husband saw her trying to hush him up. We have only been caring and loving since they got married. they have been through so much, an accident that left her jaw with permanent pain and then a dog bite a few months later that took her to the ER by ambulance. Just a lot of rough rocky roads, and we have been there for them. We just don't understand why all of a sudden she turns her back on us. She will talk if I contact her, she won't call us nor will she bring the baby over. She told something to my niece years ago but denies saying it. but as I said, she can't keep friends and she gets bugged about the simplest things. It's almost like walking on egg shells.
If somone could share with me the signs to look for. We have the same doctor and I would like to mention to him that this could be a possibility. They never got counseling for what they went through and almost separated. She went through a rough time of going out drinking with her cousin who was also married with four children. She wouldn't talk to me much during that time either. When ever she does thiings she knows are wrong she stops talking to us. But I can't think of anything else it could be but bipolar. I can't ask my sister about her daughter because she won't keep things to herself. Her daughter was adopted so it has nothing to do with family genes on my side of the family. But there are women in my husbands family who have gone through many times of bouts with bad nerves and things. A few of the nieces and sister in laws on my husband side have the POCS too and are on Zoloft and other things.
If anyone could please email and let me know what some of the signs are. I know they may be different for everyone. But it's the ups and downs that I am thinking it could be this.
