My Child’s New Diagnosis – Selecting My Thoughts


Hello. After a tumultuous & painful path, my 20 year old daughter was just hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar 1 with psychotic features. Super scary. Moving forward I am trying to come up with thoughts that serve me. And her. Due to the circumstances I will be the one to act as her advocate in getting her the best care and helping her to follow a lifestyle protocol to minimize the severity of the episodes. Panic is the emotion that comes up a lot for me. Peace/thriving (for us both) is what I want. Suggestions on how to balance staying sharp and aware while watching for the clues and warning signs but maintaining the peace and thriving feeling at the same time?
