Hi, I'm a mom of a ten year old who has been diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. After his last hospitalization in January, he was put on Abilify. We have had a very good six months, but now he is escalating becoming very frustrated, physical, uncontrollable. I thought medicine would help with this, and maybe it has because the degree is not what it once was. Will he always do this? The counselor says he is cycling. Sometimes I am just so tired myself being a single mom of , one with this condition. Can anyone give me pointers on how to help my son through this? To get him more involved? He just doensn't want to do anything-he's scared of everything. I am worried.
