My Dad Is Bi Polar What Does That Mean

Sunday, January 11th, 2004

Dear Dr. Stacey,
We had a really difficult time over the holiday with my family, especially my dad. We recently found out that he has Bi Polar Disorder. I always thought there might be something wrong. He always seemed to be very crabby. At our traditional making Christmas cookies, he just made a huge mess in the kitchen and nothing was put away and he just laughed a lot. We were having a good time but he just seems to take things to extremes. Then on the next day, he crashes and this makes me sad because he looks so sad and upset. Sometimes he won’t even get out of bed. I don’t know what to do to help him? Sincerely LOST
