the last message i left here was that my mom was doing great day before yesterday and then yesterday morning she hit rock bottom she wanted to kill herself was very sedated and out of it and while at the phyc doctors office addmitted that with in the last two weeks she had tried to kill herself and the doc told me to take her to the hospital a hundred miles away which is the closes mental hospital and when we got there someone had screwed up the paper work and we had to sit in the ER for 6 hours waiting for her to be admited and it was beging to look like they were going to send her home at about 4 hours in and then she fell apart totally started shaking the bed rails ripping the sheet in to strips and then she started to put one of the strips around her neck and that is when they finally decided to admit her.
confused  why did this happen she seemed so normal 2 days ago and was almost happy she was up all day and did all kinds of things around the house stuff she never helps me with and now she is in the hospital on a suicide attempt i don't understand how this happened

I'm sorry pboathouse, I answered early this a.m., but I guess i hit the wrong key, it didn't show up!

You're mom had the worst of the worst, mixed states.  Depressed, manic and psychotic all at once.  This is the one that claims the most lives of all bipolar states. 

What happened to your mom is that she was on her way "up" yesterday.  When a mood swing up happens, it goes through a short period of the euphoric, energetic "high" before it escalates into classic mania, then psychosis.  It can happen really fast, as you witnessed.  I'm glad she's in the hospital, from being totally non functional to psychotic in a period of days is BAD.  mad   So next, time, if you see a difference of any kind that quick, call her doc and nip it in the bud before it becomes serious. confused   It wasn't your fault, you never know if it's going to get that bad, it's the luck of the draw.  Keeping in close contact with the pdoc is the only way to stay well, and we all know it changes drastically from time to time, med changes are a fact of life with this disorder.  I have to adjust them about every few weeks to every month, minor "tweaks" to stop the rollercoaster from flying off the tracks, or crashing to the ground.  Nice analogy, huh. :-)

How is she doing now?  How are you?  Let us know, ok?
