He is getting ready to come home, and I want to do something special....

As some of you may read previous posts, I have been seeing a friend in the hospital, whose been diagnosed with Bipolar. He's been getting proper treatment, and we both can't wait for him to come home. I want to do something special with him, without the kids, but what should we do, and how long should we wait from when he gets home?

  • Nothing over stimulating. He might feel like you are trying too hard, and that may make him feel uneasy. I think it would be best to try and make things as normal as possible. Maybe just a simple date night.

  • I would take it easy. Do something like a picnic lunch and a walk at a park. He may be feeling kindof "touchy", so I would avoid alot of crowds or anything stressfull. It would probably be nice for him just to be with you and talk about things.

  • It is spring so maybe buy him some herbs for his window. A focus on something positive might be good.

  • Oh I am sorry. I thought you were asking about what to get him as a present.

  • He has been saying he wants to go to DC to go to the museums there, because we both love that kind of stuff. Or the Aquarium in Baltimore, but idk if that would be okay, this will be the first time we've hung out since we were little kids

  • take him out to dinner and maybe see a movie. do it a day or two after he comes home form the hospital becasue he may not want to do anything after being released.
