So when my family finally realized that I was bipolar we had gone through a lot of ups and downs. During the last time I felt out of control I ended up going from never having sex to having sex with two guys. My parents ended up finding out and so did my brother. My brother is two years younger and is currently 17 (he'll turn 18 next month). During one of the fights I was having with my family he ended up saying some things. I don't remember what the fight was about I just know I walked out of the house at night and walked aimlessly (stupid I know). I know that I got him really frustrated with me. So when my family and I were arguing and trying to calm and straighten things out he said "I grew up in the same house and I am not messed up like you". Well that kind of set things off again. Since then he has hated (strongly disliked) me. He recently went to Spirit West Coast and felt strongly convicted of many of his behaviors. Basically he doesn't seem to hate me anymore. However, I have been on meds that seem to be working really well since then. I wish I could get him to understand more about BP2 but I am really hesitant to breach the subject. Any ideas?

Last night was a family gathering that I helped plan. It was for my cousin who is in from out of town. He is here with his girlfriend.

It's not covered under insurance so it'd be quite an investment for me, but I've been struggling with a depressive episode that doesn't want to seem to budge no matter what I've attempted. It's not conter-indicated for bipolar...
