Thanx for the reply.
You're right, I do feel much better if I keep myself occupied both mentally and physically. Since I went on disability retirement, I exercise daily and I'm out every day and walk the dog every day and cut grass and shovel snow for myself and the neihbours(sp).
As for my bipolar son - that's a different story. No matter how hard I try, I can't get him out of bed before 2 or 3pm. When I try, he gets very violent with me. He's even threatened to off me in my sleep.(see my post on the bipolar board "father needs help")
I feel like a stranger in my own home. If things don't go his way, he beats the crap out of me.
With that being said, how am I supposed to keep my stress level down - (major trigger for epilepsy).
Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
