You know Rosie, I was thinking about it and couselors should not be giving advice like that. A good doctor should know that sleeping too much could be a sign. You said that she is bipolar II. I was wondering if she has a psychiatrist. Maybe you could show your son the website I referenced. I like it because it's very evidence based. And the Dr. that made it references everything he says with literature. And he explains a lot. If I never found this web site I would probably still be questioning my diagnosis. (not that I don't question it). But I understand it better.
