Hopeless, Bipolar disorder is a very serious mental illness. Have you been able to read any books to help you understand it? Have you joined any support groups such as NAMI? I suggest reading bipolar disorder for dummies. The anger, stealing, and temper tantrums are symptoms. With strong medicine and therapy and she is still acting the same doesn't make sense. Shes either not taking her meds or she her dr. needs to try something else. It took me a year and a half to find a good dr. for my son. He finally gave him a different med that works for him. He was on Serquel for a while and it was only making him worse. This is not an easy situation to be in for anyone and there is no easy fix. If you ask her to leave she will not make it on her own if she is not stable.View Thread
