My 17 year old son has just been diagnosed with bipolar.

by Anne

My 17 year old son has just been diagnosed with bipolar, he has been in the physc ward for two weeks now and will be coming home in a few days. I'm so scared. For the past year I have been dealing with him, his anger, his disrespect, his disregard for house rules. I'm exhausted as I usually spend every night out looking for him till three in the morning. Now that we know what the situation is and why he has been acting that way I feel very angry, not at him but just for the fact that this is happening to my baby boy. I'm worried that I wont be able to give him the support he needs to be successful. My husband is very confident that we will be fine but I feel like I'm falling apart.
