My sister has bipolar and just had a baby almost 3 weeks ago. It is her second child. Her first is in the care of the grandparents because my sister could no longer raise her (she is 7).
I know my sister is trying her best but she confided in me today that she is being put on Lexipro (i think that's what it's called) because she informed her doctor that she had become increasingly frustrated with her new born and had some urges to shake her.
I love my sister, but i can see already where this is going. She will not harm her baby. But because she fears she will harm the baby she will neglect it (avoid taking care of the baby so that she doesn't get the urge to hurt her). I think it will be a year or two ...but ugh!
why didn't she just give her up for adoption?
And for those who will ask, DH says that we will not take the baby. I'm raising 2 that are not mine already.
