Big Geordie Posted February 4, 2009 Share Posted February 4, 2009 Just wondered if anyone on here has experiences of it? My father in law is bi-polar and is going through a bit of a rough time over the last few days, as he's on a 'high'. Have sat in with him a couple of times (to give my mother-in-law some respite) and I can understand as to why some would be unsettled by witnessing someone who is suffering. He is having real difficulty in functioning, which isn't helped with a lack of sleep. A GP and the local CAT (Crisis Assistance) team have visited him today, which is good and he's also going to see his psychiatrist tomorrow. A change in his meds is probably going to be needed - I just hope once he comes down that it's not followed by a massive low. Worrying times. We are doing our best to offer support - the family are rallying around him and my mother-in-law. It's still not easy for either of them though.
