I'm 13. I recently found out that my best friend (same age) has Bipolar. Her parents are in definite denial about it, and refuse to believe that there's anything wrong with her. I'm extremely worried about her, because she is now irritable towards her closest friends and through that is losing all of them. I am on the edge here, because she has been pretty mean to me lately, but I know that behind the illness she is a great kid, and I don't want to leave her as a friend. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make her situation better? And if it involves talking to her parents, what should I say? She hasn't been diagnosed, but I asked a professional psychiatrist about her case, and she said that it sounds like Bipolar. It's not like it's occasional mood swings. This is serious.
