You are so funny. I love the way you tell your stories. I was always a dog person myself. A family member has a beautiful rednosed pit who is the sweetest most lovable dog ever. I made the mistake of buying a house near the woods and have rescued quite a few cats. They are all friendly, Jazimine sleeps on me at night. If I'm laying on my side she will lay from my hip to my shoulder. If i'm laying on my back she will lay on my chest. One time I woke up because she was laying across my neck and I was starting to choke. lol. Then there is Yogi, he thinks he's a dog, he begs for food and and will join us for dinner by sitting at an empty seat waiting to be served table food. As for the rest - well there are too many to mention.View Thread
Thank you Snowy, your so sweet. My heart goes out to you and all the other beautiful people on the board who have had episodes. There are no words to describe my pain when I see my son not stable but I know my pain is nothing compared to what he is feeling. And I know that everyone must take responsibility for their actions, the part that I'm having trouble understanding is how do you take responsibility for things you couldn't control or never intended to do or things you can't remember. In my son's case when I tell him things he might have said or done it makes him feel worse.View Thread
Thank you for your kind words. My son is 21. I think he is mixed as well. The BP runs in my husbands family. (He's in denial) Your story reminds me of his brother only his self destruction lasted most of his life and he did wind up in jail. He started drinking at 13 and wasn't diagnosed until 42 or 43. My mother-in-law is in denial as well, but her ex did tell me that her mother and her mother's siblings were all hospitalized. Even after my son's dx she still isn't honest or open about the illness. She still thinks her son's problems are because of his drinking and that he's not BP. He knows he's BP. So sad about your grandma.
