I just had my 9 year old DS evaluated for ADHD. It was a very in-depth process and included family history. I thought nothing of it when asked if my mother suffered from depression. I said yes, and then he asked about bipolar, and I said maybe.
This morning I left her a copy of the report, without even thinking about that being in there. Now she's furious and says that she is not bipolar, nor does she suffer from depression. In all honesty, she's a nut. She could be incredibly giddy one minute and then in the depths of despair the next. And then she asked me if I thought she was bipolar. I'm 34 and still afraid of her wrath, so I said I'm not a professional and can't make that diagnosis. I'm just thinking, it might not be safe to tell someone who's bipolar that they're bipolar. Crap.
So she's now calling around to my family telling them that I said she's bipolar. And she'll probably stop talking to me for a few weeks. Good times.
