My son was 12 when I was idagnosed with bipolar - the medicine adjustments really took me for a ride so i was sick. He knew something was wrong and asked me if I had cancer. We thought, at the time, it was best to tell him the truth so he wouldn't be scared. Now he's 14 and he uses it to embarass me - he tell his friends his Mom is "crazy Bipolar" tells his Dad's parents and his Dad (we were never married) and anyone who listens. he is also on prozac and he tells his friends about his meds like it makes him cool or something.I think he's just begging to get teased and I don't know how to convince him that some things are private. I don't tell people about my disorder and I certainly don't want him "outing" me. How can I impress upon him that he shouldn't talk about it to other people? How can I make a hormonal teen understand?
