Honey I'm sorry your having to go thru this with not much support at home. Some people have a tough time talking about someone they love being sick so try not to push him. Let him handel it the best way he can and try to stay strong for your family. Come talk to us here at HW you have a lot of great friends here and pleanty of support. I know it's not the same but we are here for you.
Yeah I think a mans view might help - although Jethro's been through it where as my BF hasn't , although I know his uncle is bipolar (he helped me when I was having P/A , social phobia , at a wedding do bless him ) but I don't know if he's that close to him really - ya know , to see the darker side.
Oh and congrats Jethro
