My daughter was dx 6-7 years ago with depression, and now dx as bipolar, has had so many physical injuries through the years that I wonder if this is connected. She was always the kid on crutches, endless sprained ankles, torn ligaments, sports accidents, etc. These are very real - not imagined - and some of her physical problems can't possibly be "on purpose". When she was 18, she had 4 surgeries (knee, jaw, wrist) within 10 months. A few weeks ago, she again twisted her knee and had an MRI this week, and will see the orthopedist in 2 weeks. My knickname for her is "calamity". I wonder if some of these injuries are due to the "manic" side - she throws herself into things with such abandon, that perhaps that makes her more at risk? Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks!
