Hi folks, looking for some help and support, my adult son recently started showing signs of bipolar (or at least manic), it's all new to me and I don't know how to deal with it yet. Hoping to find some people who've gone through it all who can help, I'd really appreciate that. I'll post the story in the appropriate forum after my first hello!

Hello and welcome to the forums, I hope you find and get the support you are looking for, I have to say I don;t know much about Bipolar, except it can be very extreme one way and another, I get mixed states and mania but not diagnosed with bipolar.

Anyway hope you find it friendly, helpful and supportive

You will find lots of advice and varied opinions on here :)

It's a bit quiet at night in UK time though, so make sure you pop back tomorrow if no advice today.

Thank you to everyone who replied. I posted in the BPD subforum about my son's condition. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it. You're all very kind.
