I have a 13 year old daughter who is bi-polar. I have been diagnosed with the condition since I was 25 and I have a father and 2 brothers who also have this condition. (We have a shallow gene pool) Since my daugher has been on Lithium therapy she has made great improvement. She also takes Prozac and Buspar. It took 2 years to get her levels right, but for the fist time I am starting to see my daughter come back. Self esteme has played a great role in her recovery. I was very selective who I told (teachers, firends) about her therapy but she is well on her way. I pray your daughter and husband find the right cocktail of medications to enable them to be happy and feel productive. If you or your daughter ever need to talk to someone who has been ther, please feel free to e-mail us. God bless you all.
