A lot of times this can be triggered by epilepsy.
Alot of the symptoms I have listed.....paranoia.......aggresive and/or violent initiative.......always wants to sleep......poor eating habits......spending money just for the sake of spending...etc.
Check out the "BI-Polar" board on this site.
Very often kids get into trouble with the law etc. and everybody is quick to call him a bad kid when it is an undiagnosed medical problem that can be treated with meds.
I have an 18 year old son that was dianosed with "Bi-Polar" (manic depression) when he was 12 and he has been putting this family through hell.
Good Luck

Just was peeking around... noticed Bipolar and thought I would read. I am dx with Bipolar. I am a rapid cycler , I am sure i put my family through hell at times, but think of what Bipolar puts me  Hi Jennifer))))))... Also seen a girl that is starting school soon on this forum, i just started myself. Although I have been going, we just started back. Yeah 2 weeks off wasn't really enough. I just wanted to tell ya, I am right there with ya. It's overwhelming and stressful. I take meds that make it difficult to concentrate and focus at times, not to mention sleep alot or not enough. I did one year of Nursing school myself, and switched my major to Surgical Technology ( specialize in plastic surgery or cardiovascular ???) . At least I stayed in the health field. Well good luck to you, you will do just fine. ( I am always nervous, I also "have it in me", but it's human to feel that way/ I am always making sure to be the perfectionist because of my Bipolar disorder)  Nice to talk to you guys over here. I will be back at the BP forum.
