Having a child with Bipolar Disorder is like…

One of my children has a mood disorder. I don’t want to violate his confidentiality, so I won’t tell you which one it is. In case you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to parent a child, teen, or young adult with a mood disorder, I will help you out.

It’s like riding a rollercoaster all day long while trying to do everything else you need to do. I get quite a bit done while we are clicking along on the upswing, but those plunges, well they can be downright challenging.

That's me trying to make a business call. Well, not really, but you get the point.

I’ve taken to keeping lids on my drinks.

Don’t get me wrong.. he is a fun and funny kid. It’s just that trying to do the rollercoaster thing every day, well, it sometimes wears you out.

To be fair, I’m sure he gets weary too.
