Hi folks. My son recently told me he was diagnosed with Bipolar. He told me,
"Mom, you can't fix me, so don't try" He has taken different drugs, and he said they
make him feel weird, and he quit. He ignores his whole family,,which is strange since
he is the youngest son, and was a trifle spoiled and always got whatever he wanted.
He will be 38 next month,,,and although he was always getting into mischief when he was young, he was never mean or selfish. For the past 4 years though, he has cut himself off from his brothers, and me and my husband. He doesn't show up for Holidays, or call or even send cards for Mothers day or birthdays,,etc,,nothing. We all wonder what is wrong..Is this normal? Why does he hate us..??? We all love him and want him included in family life. He said he doesnn't feel like he doesn't fit it. I don't get it.
He lives close by, but you'd think he lived miles away. He goes to work, and he is a school teacher of little kids, and they love him and his principal thinks he's great.
How can he do that and not want to be with his family who love and worry about him
Someone please explain.
