I keep hearing that I need to set limits on behavior but I really need help with specifics of this idea. What are some things I can say about this? She doesn't like the meds because she is too "lethargic" but she has not really given them time for this side effect to lessen. She seems to constantly be in a mixed state and I don't know what to do. Tonight, she threatened to leave and spoke about suicide. Of course, it is all because I am not supportive enough. I also would like to know if the manipulation and controlling are part of the illness or just her "pleasant" personality. I feel like sometimes she gets mad and throws a tantrum and then, turns around and acts all apologetic just to get to me and make me feel sorry for her. And that she is manipulating me to control the situation. My counselor doesn't think that it is all from bipolar. Can you help before I let it destroy my kids?
