I know I haven't posted lately but I've been on a major rollar coaster of rapid cycling. I need some advice though. I've got a family reunion on my dads side coming up the end of this month. I dont really want to go but as it will probably be my Dad's and possibly my grandmothers last I'm sorta umm obligated, yea thats the word, to go. At the last reunion I wasn't diagnosed, was working a summer job and in college. Looking back I now know I was also manic. I have a tendency to run my mouth when manic or anxious both of wich tend to happen when I'm around crowds, their expecting about 200 for the reunion. How can I explain that I'm not working or in school because I have an illness or should I even bother? I also could use some tips on dealing with family who are very set in their ways and uncaring. Dad had cancer and NONE of them, even his 9 brothers and sisters ever call, send a card anything. Yea I have some anger issues with them, but any advice on how I can try to at least look like I'm playing nice so as not to upset him? I'll take any tips that dont involve me giving in to the urge to become violet ():-)
