i'm not sure if i would be as strong as dragon about
therapy (she's usually very definite
), but agree that it is one arrow in your quiver.
from the little that you present, it's hard for me to make any certain opinions. if your child has been diagnosed with bp, at least you have one answer, but not necessarily THE answer. teen years are difficult, especially for someone with bp. hormones add to the imbalances associated with the illness. answers? if i had one i wouldn't necessarily be sitting in south texas.
getting close to your kids is difficult. m,y wife's daughter was an adult before she let me in. all that i can suggest is to be patient, be supportive, and be available. also avoid telling her that she "shouldn't feel that way" or "solving" her problem in 3 mins. kids have to feel that they can speak without worrying about the repercussions of their openness.
i'm far from an expert in these matters, but i've lived a long time and had a carnucopia of experiences.
hope this helps.

Some day you'll learn that a good bm is better than sex.
