My husband has been disabled for approx 15years. We are raising our 6 year old Grandaughter and he is the main caretaker since I work full time. The VA put him on anti-aniety meds since he always is stressed, very snappy. He told me this morning he thinks he may be bipolar, guess he saw some show on TV. He is always worried about our Grandaughters future, what will happen to her when we are gone, etc. It is to the point it is obsessive and it makes him so depressed. I worry too, but I take it day to day, he always is thinking about the future and it is always dooms day. Then other days is happy, whistling away, not sure what to think but I think they may have given him the wrong meds. Does any of this sound like bipolar? I have a brother in law who is but am not around him enough to know too much about it and really am not that close to him to ask him. Just wondering if he should go back to the VA and pursue it.
Thanks for any imput,
