Hey to everyone, I am new to this website. I love it already. I really enjoy the comments. I am very curious to know how Bipolar affects different people, when they are parents. I am 29 years old. I have only one child who is 4 years old. I have stayed at home with him since he was a baby. I love him dearly. But dealing with a child and tryimg to implement a schedule for them, when I cant even make my own bed or wash clothes on a regular basis, is very challenging. I try to teach him self control and here I am throwing dishes. Even with medication I still at times loose my temper and yell too much. Sometimes I wish I had more self control. I am torn right now because I want to have another baby, but I am not sure if I am mentally ready for that. I know that just during the 9 months when I was pregnant I was maniac pretty much the whole time. My husband thought I was the devil and I was cussing people out on a daily basis at work, if they look at me the wrong way. I am not sure if I am up for that again. There is not enough Lithium or Zyprexa in the world that can control your hormones. I really would be interested to here from some of yall on how yall deal with being a good balanced parent with Bipolar, and any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
