Unhappy My Bipolar Teen

Hello!
I'm new here, I hope I'm posting in the right place. I have a daughter who is 18 and is dev. delayed, ADHD and Manic depressive Bipolar and lately is showing sign of Schizophrenia. She is a cutter and has attemped suicide several time and has been placed on a psych hospital many times.

She takes several meds and just been placed on seroquel. I'm trying so hard to understand and am trying to help her. At times she wants the help and other times she doesn't. She is hearing voices and they are getting bad. She just use to hear them at night, but the school has called me as she is hearing them in the day time now. She becomes very irritated with the teachers and the students and will act out. She think that we are all out to get her and harm her.

We have been seeing her psych Dr. once a week and the other day he told me that he is worried about her, I was thinking that if a Dr. says that he's worried, that can't be good. I feel so helpless and don't know what to do. I guess I'm just looking for people that I can talk too about this, are there any other parents that are going through the same thing that I am??

I feel like I'm letting my baby girl down as I can't make her better. I know that I'm doing all that I can, but once again, I feel helpless. I can't imagine what she is going through.

Thanks! Hope to hear from someone soon!

Re: My Bipolar Teen

Hi Mother 2 Stephani,

I can't help since I'm the one with bp. I just wanted to say welcome. You can come here with anything anytime we're here for you.

You sound like you need a {{{{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}

Love,

Jamie
