I suffer with Bi polar, PTSD and major anxiety. My dh is awesome with me, he is so supportive. DS just thinks mommy cries sometimes. I go to counseling weekly and also to a psychiatrist for my meds.
Almost everyone in my family (especially mother's side) have some form of mental illness.
Some of them cope by taking lots of medications (like my mother, and had have a hard time losing weight 'cause of them), others (like some of her cousins) have some form of drug abuse or addiction (from alcohol or tobacco to prescribed drugs), or can't stay on track with their daily lives (my brother Edward has been in three different universities and can't deal with people due to severe schizophrenia).
My parents are both manics and I have schizophrenia
I keep to myself. That's how I cope.
