Default Today I totalled my car

That is one way to lose your appetite. Thank G-d no one was hurt,but I feel just terrible about it.
On top of everything else,I am on this special diet for the colonostophy I am having Thursday.I am worried about that, too
Also, my daughter is bi-polar and wouldn't take any medicine for it.She is not talking to me right now which I am very upset about. She lives in Georgia and is grown up now.I feel really bad about that.I just have to wait until she feels like talking to me again.She has done this before.I imagine she will come around eventually.
Sorry to dump on everyone, but I had to talk to someone and you guys are it.I feel close to you. Not that I don't have friends and family, but I can say anything here and people are pretty nice to me.
Well, that is about it for tonight.Please say a prayer for me,I need it

I remember how shaken I was after my car was totaled back in 2003. I am so glad you are alright! You have my prayers.

Car accidents are so traumatic. I am glad you are okay! A good night's sleep will make things seem better in the morning. Bipolar is not an easy condition to deal with and when your daughter is on an upswing she will come around. Too bad she doesn't take her medication. Take a long, warm soak, listen to some good music and put on your softest PJs and snuggle in. Tomorrow is another and better day!

I have made it to onederland!

Jane, that's awful about your car, but at least no one was hurt. I'm sorry that life seems to have taken a nosedive for you right now, but try to hang in there. There's always a rainbow after the storm.

Glad you're okay, Jane! So sorry about the car; know it must be a scary experience!

It's really hard having family that have mental health issues and don't take care of themselves. People who have Bipolar disorder seem more prone to take themselves off their meds--when they go through a manic episode, they feel like they don't need them anymore. In my experience, most people eventually come to realize that they need to stick with their meds (or find another, healthy, way to cope--I have one friend that is working with a doctor to use thyroid meds to cope with his thyroid problem and has found that has also helped him with his bipolar symptoms. ).

You might consider seeing a therapist to help you cope with her being off her meds--the therapist can listen, provide advice and comfort from the perspective of someone who knows about bipolar disorder, and help you figure out what you can do and what you shouldn't try to take on yourself. There are two moms in my group therapy who are there, at least in part, because they have kids with issues--one has a non-medicated bipolar daughter and another has a son who's addicted to drugs. Another member has a brother that's bipolar and on and off his meds. It definitely affects us all when someone we love doesn't take care of their mental health.
