: My husband and I adopted our daughter 5 years ago when she was 9. She has been in 4 hospital since September, 1999. Why can she not be diagnosed as bipolar until she is 18 years old? We have been told by her counselors and therapist that they can only treat the symptoms. This child has run away 5 times, she is still presently gone and has been for a week now!! We are desperate at this point,we are considering relinquishing our rights to protect our other children in the home.
BUNK! My step daughter is now 16 years old and has diagnosed with bipolar for roughly 2 years now. It is an up hill battle most of the time and we had to fight for a lot of the treatment she has recieved. Please fell free to e-mail me if you like to "compare notes" I am more than happy to answer any and all to the best of my knowledge. I am not sure I can find my way back into here so sending me a direct e-mail might be best. Good luck to all with the bipolar disease and their families. Hang in there! Terry
