Hi, my name is Lifeisreal51 and I am bipolar. Controlled with medication.
My current reason for being here is to help my husband and me on how to support our adult child. I’m looking for parental support for my adult child who has not gone to a doctor for an anxiety evaluation. We are at a point that it is time for her to consider this option and possibly medication. She does go to weekly therapy that has helped and helps, but she is progressing and anxiety is getting in the way of balancing her life. She does have a medical dx of PCOS that does affect her hormones and her health anxiety. She is in the process of leaving one job and starting a new one. This under normal circumstances is stressful so anticipate this change is adding to the anxiety.
What communications are helpful and what are not for encouragement, but not enabling.
