Bipolar

Bipolar. Does anyone else have a bipolar child? I am bipolar with ADHD mixed in. Watching my 7 year old daughter is like watching me in a slow motion video. I want to get her checked out and see if she does have it. I was 26 years old when I was diagnosed with it. I don't want her to go through 20 some odd years of the same thing I went through. It's very hard on me to watch her. She acts just like I did at that age. Her moods are exactly as mine were. I am scared and I really don't know what to do other than get her tested.
