: Is there anyone out there who has found a good board and care facility for a young adult of 25-35 years of age who suffers from bipolar disorder? If so, please respond to Cynthia who lives in Southern California.
: So far, I have only heard of bad board and care facilities who do not know how to show these patients respect and I am at my wits end. It is also difficult to find friends for my son with this disorder. He is so handsome and he has such a heart of gold, he is just confused and depressed. Please help me. I have missed time from work and it affects my whole family. All he wants is friends and some love from others. He already knows his family loves him. He just wants somef friends who can accept him for who he is.

Cynthia, I am 42 years old and I am Bi-polar. I have only been getting treatment for around 8 months, but I have suffered with this disorder all my life. Coming from a poor uneducated family
I did not get the help I needed. If I could have my life would have been different. They are trying to regulate my medicine. It has been very hard so I feel for your son. May I ask how old he is, if he is on medication, and if so is the medication regulated? Feel free to contact me at my e-mail address if you need to talk.
