I was dignoised with being bipolar. I don't know how I am to deal with that. How does some one who had to deal with having a deadly diease, cancer, when they are 8, loosing their hair, standing on the sidelines at recess time because I couldn't run and play. A few years later, I loose my uncle, on my grandmothers birthday. Then that Feb, I loose the only father figure I had in my life, my grandpa. I call him my grandpa, because to me there's a difference between a grandfather and grandpa. I never met my grandfather, he died when my mother was 17. Oh and then at the age of 13, I get raped by my neighbor.

But I don't know how to deal with being a single mother, going to school full time, and working 25+ hours a week. And being seriously sick in the head. This is will never in my life go away.

I'm feeling completely lost and have no idea what to do. I am already in counseling for my other problems. Me and my mom the other day sat in complete and total silence last weekend on the way to take me to work. That's never happened.

"When it rains it pours", sweetie, you take it one dayat a time and it sounds like your taking the correct steps in helping yourself! The diagnosis "bipolar", that's a word, a term, not a sentense! Hang in there!
