Bipolar is Back

Bipolar is back. Not that it was ever really gone, but the Invega controlled the bipolar so well, the bipolar rarely made the radar screen. GB has only one volume at the moment- loudest. The pressured speech makes it hard to understand what she is trying to say. She is only completing one thought in four. The rest gets lost in the whirlwind of mania. She has no attention span. My biggest dread is that as the mania cycles higher and higher, she is more likely to experience psychotic breaks. Please pray for her... she doesn't understand what is happening and is scared.

So long as she is on medication I doubt her mania will be able to get that high. At least I hope it won't. She is in my prayers.

I often think of how hard it must be to live in the brains that our children live in. Even on the best of days I think it is difficult for Noah. I know I'm late with this comment, but I hope the new meds are working.

*hugs*
