I have been struggling with Bipolar Disorder since I was about 12 years old and I have just now (at age 27) found a medication that seems to help me control it. My mother has severe OCD and my grandmother suffered a mental break when I was 3 or so (my mom said that she had to go into a mental hospital for a few days) I myself have been in a mental hospital after a failed suicide attempt.
My concern is that I may have passed "mental illness" to my own daughter and I was wondering if anyone knew what signs I should be looking for and if 4 yrs old is too young to even be showing signs.
Any help at all would be appreciated. Please no bashing

Talk to your doc and your child's doc too... they should be able to give you some guidance!! Puberty is one time I know of to be super vigilant... changing hormone levels can have an affect on behavior.
