hello there, my name is amy and i have some questions.
 
my mom is in her fifties, has hep c and cirrhosis of the liver and i think she is bipolar. her mood swings are horrid, there are times when she doesnt sleep cause she says she cant turn her mind off. i know she is depressed but i have always felt like there was more to it. she gets in these moods where she hates everyone including her self and she starts yelling and telling me she hates me and that she wishes she wasnt around. she is not suicidal but she will say how the world would have been better off. she places blame on others but not herself and when she gets like this she is a totally different person and not my mom. at a young age she got into drugs and alcohol but she is clean now.
 
she literally makes me feel like i am the mom and she is the child our roles are reversed. i have alot more but i will start with this. a counselor(one that is community given for the ones who are out on the streets) once told her she was bipolar but she hasnt been diagnosed

Hi Worriedgirl,

Welcome to HealingWell and the bipolar board.
None of us can diagnose, but I can certainly see where you might think bipolar. Try and get your mom to a psychiatrist so she can get some relief.

oh i know you cant diagnose was just wondering if you thought she fit in this category or if i am right in my thinking. the only other option is she is crazy. i do know after we have these tiffs she calls me up crying apologizing and saying she is feeling crazy and that she doesnt know why she does these things.

There's no such thing as crazy -- not really. Everything's diagnosable, right? I bet she'd do well with a doc visit.

hi. im a 49 yr. old mom to a 19 yr. old daughter. i was diagnosed with bi-polar when she was 14. i actually had a psychotic break. i know shes had to deal with alot over the past few yrs. many of the things you said i can identify with. please help your mom get the help she needs. if she refuses, you may have to just take care of yourself. i wish you and your mom the very best.
