Thank you for your feedback, Tom. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
I didn’t realize until I was older and dealing with my own experience with Bipolar Disorder that my parents had experienced mental health issues as well. Mental health can be a struggle and what helps one may not help another. It really is a matter of trial and error for each individual.
I take medication and participate in regular counseling. I don’t blame my parents for the disease they lived with but I am different from them in the sense that I sought out help to live a better quality of life than they had.
Best wishes to you and your family.
