my mom is bipolar II. im depressed too, possibly bipolar. when shes down we all have to drop everything, and at least someone has to stay at home with her all day. its so frustrating, and i feel like she acts really helpless and upset to get attention. the tables are totally turned when im depressed. no one stays with me all day, bringing me food and doing whatever i want. people will talk to me in my family, but not a lot. even when i was in the hospital 2 hours away from home, suicidal, no one came to visit me. in fact, my mom yelled at me on the phone. how do i deal with this? its so frustrating and so unfair. im 19, im going to school, doing everything right. yet im not doing the social activities people my age are doing, often because my moms upset, or im just afraid to ask if i can do something. i know this sounds bad, but i feel like my mom is being a drama queen part of the time. i know shes depressed, but i think its waaay overdramatized. what do i do?
