My 16 year old son has BP I. Through therapy we've seen he has low self esteem and we are working on building that, mostly by encouraging him with positive comments when appropriate and acknowledging his accomplishments and progress. I'm wondering though how to balance the positive comments and encouragement against maybe also feeding grandiosity. He isn't normally grandiose, unless his mood is swinging high. Anyone have advice about this? Many thanks in advance ~

I spent six weeks in the hospital following my overdose. I’m heading home now. I quit my job and will be going to intensive outpatient program. I’m just happy to be going back to my family. I missed them dearly
I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
