My brother was diagnosed with BP when he was 17 and it's been a struggle ever since. He is now 24 and I thought by now it would be easier to deal with. His episodes are getting to be more frequent and he has been in and out of the hospital for the last six months many times. A couple weeks ago he tried to end his life and my family is pretty much in crisis mode. Every time he goes into the hospital they change his medecine and it seems like they cannot find the right mix. As he gets older will things get better? I'm just feeling at a loss right now because I cannot make him feel better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am new to this site :)

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
