I have a 28 year old daughter who was diagnosed with bipolar about 2 2.5 years ago. She was on meds for a bout a year, but due to weight gain she stopped them. Since then we have been on a roller coaster ride. I have had her put on a Form1, From 2, taken to hosptial by police etc. The same thing happens most times, thehosptial will keep her for a few weeks or even a month if we get lucky, then they discharge her. My duahgter is very bright. She always pulls it together, says all the right things, but then goes off her meds. She moved into a new apartment in April, didint pay athe rent for four months, then came and asked us to help. My husband and I paid her back rent, as we dont want to see her homeless. We buy food for her, and have aske dher to let us manage her moeny. She is on Ontario Disablity Support Program, but every month when she gets the cheque, she spends all her money within a week. I have talked to her doctors, there have been three now. But they all tell me I have to get a Form 2 issued again. I cant do it. Our daughter is a very irritatble and arguementive bipolar, at times I wonder if she has a borderline personlity disorder as well. We can never do enough and what we do do is never right by her. We are exhausted. Here is the real kicker, I am a mental health nurse. I know the system, know it well, but my own daughter is falling through the cracks. Are there other parents out there who have been thorugh this. I appreciate any thoughts.

On both my Ipad and Iphone the title and most of the OP are overlaid with the banner, advertisements, the date in blue, and various other stuff that should not be there. Short posts fare a bit better.Does anyone else have this issue? Is DS going to fix it? Very frustrating to not be able to read the OP's anymore!
in the hospital the dr bumped up my lithium from 900-1350. He regularly asked me if I was experiencing any side effects but I didn’t notice the tremors till yesterday. Then today I was loom knitting and the tremors are really noticeable. My needle is not hitting its target as quick as it should.
