Life’s Up’s and Down’s: Caring for Bipolar Disorder

????????????????????????????????????????

Up’s and down’s are a part of life. For those dealing with Bipolar Disorder, these times can be especially hard. According to WebMD, Bipolar Disorder is defined as a “mood disorder” characterized by dramatic, sometimes uncontrollable mood swings. Suffers switch between debilitating depression and manic episodes that can cause insomnia, hallucinations, psychosis, grandiose delusions, and/or paranoid rage.

Diagnosis is the First Step

Many people who’ve recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder struggle with the stigma of having an illness. Oftentimes they reject the diagnosis and refuse treatment and medications. Accepting the disease and knowing that help is available is a life-changing first step toward breaking free from the cycle of constant up’s and down’s.

Caring for Bipolar

Caring for a loved one with bipolar disorder is no walk in the park. Finding the perfect balance between being supportive and sympathetic takes tremendous patience and proper knowledge of the disease. Knowing the signs and symptoms can help you recognize emotional changes and make a big difference in your overall quality of life.

Milestones in the Life of Your Special Needs Kid

Like the experience of special needs parenting itself, Joel Yanovsky’s articles for the blog “Motherlode: Adventures In Parenting” (a subset of The New York Times) are heartwarming, funny, sobering, proud and matter of fact. We at A-1 Home Care loved “A Bar Mitzvah, with Autism” which chronicles his autistic son’s ceremonial crossing over into manhood. You just might shed a tear.
