To both of your parents that are frustrated. I can totally relate.
THe young folks have to go through denial before they will be ready
to accept the diagnosis. So its going to take some time.
Just continue to be there for them. If they get suicidal enough that
you can have them admitted do that. Love them, and let them know.
I am a parent, but I also am a member of the Adult bipolar room.
But I do not have bipolar. I go there to talk to the adults about
how I can help not only my son, but my sister and others I know
with bipolar. And my own anxiety.
I can tell you it would be something that would help you both.
So come join us.
