Bi-Polar

My mother is bi-polar, diabetic, & going through mentapause. I just don't know how to handle her sometimes with the way she acts. I need a little advice on how to handle her mood swings and the things she says.

  • If she's still having mood swings, maybe her meds need to be adjusted.

  • Patience. And if you don't think her meds are working, mention it to her and see if you can get her to get them adjusted.

  • If I do mention anything she gets mad and walks off most of the time and leaves.
