My brother has been having severe mood swings. My SIL his wife has spoken to a councelor and the councelor says it sounds like bipolar to him. I know this is NOT an official diagnosis. They are on the brink of divorce this after my brother shot the dog and called 2 of the kids not his IN FRONT OF THEM! He's done lots of other stuff too that makes it seem like he might be bipolar. On to my question. How does my SIL find out about support for the families of bipolars in her area? Is there such a thing? Does anyone have any links I might be able to point her to? IF this is bipolar and IF she decides to stay then she is going to need some support her and the kids. The kids range in age from 7 to 17 and hate their Dad after he shot the dog and I can't say as I blame them. Also is it normal not to remember SOME stuff you do during a maic phase? There is I feel a lot more going on in their marriage than this issue but nevertheless IF he is diagnosed with bipolar then they will need to be educated on what exactly it is via websites and counceling and such.

im curious, how long have you been stable? What do you count as stability, and to what do you owe your success?
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
