Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. Diagnosaton with bipolar disorder, maniac, depression, anxiety etc never means that you are having multiple personality disorder. All these years, you were living with all these problems and that itself is positive. You should understand and take pride out of it. You have the capacity to live even with all these problems. You should definitely take Cognitive Behavior Therapy as a surefire cure for your problems. Start with these steps:

1. Oxygen and Water are always considered to be elixirs for mental illnesses. Deep Breathing, exercising and drinking plenty of water is the first step.

2. Understand your problems. They are their because once you tried to overcome some problems and tried to win the battle with mind. Another positive.

3. One fruit juice daily. One raw tomato daily.

4. Exercise for at least one hour. Work your sweat out. Aerobics are fine.

These are beginning steps of CBT. Strictly follow these for 7 days.After 7 days You can post a direct question to me in this website. Include every detail as much as you can. I shall prescribe some psychotherapy techniques to control your condition. I am sure that the techniques should be a success.

Don't jump the gun in your son's case. That is a remote possibility. Wait and watch.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
