Hi, I do not have Bi-Polar but my grandaughter's mother has this disorder.
Her mother ( the other grandma ) also has BP personality disorder. This young mother has abandoned her child more than once, leaving my grandaughter with her great-grandmother or her mother who is unstable a lot of the time.
My son and his X lasted 8 months together. They are very young, and both have depression/anxiety and are not really capable of caring for a child. They fight and no-body cooks much, or cleans. My grandaughter is now 20 months and is bounced between the Grandmother * at her convienence, / Great-grandmother who is 70 + & us & our son.
My question is: if you go off the meds, or flare up, do you loose that motherly bond, does it not matter if you see your child or not? Does your love for your child turn on and off? Because, I remember when my kids were born and still babies, I couldn't bare to be apart from them.
I am sooooo worried for my grandaughter's future. I hope she has a stable home by the time she starts school.
Thanks for listening....Sassy
