Patient discussion about family health
Q. United happy family but now... We are a united happy family with married brothers, sisters and their families. Our father died when he was suffering from Bipolar1. Now one of my sisters is diagnosed as Bipolar II. We are afraid that our family happiness will vanish soon. Please let me know about the difference between bipolar1 and bipolar11 and what the treatments available are?
Any family that is dealing with Bipolar disorder will have some difficult and trying times. you obviously love your sister so just be patient and supportive to her. Encourage her to take medications as perscribed and encourage her to get theropy, I think these steps are invaluable to a person with bipolar. Bipolar ii is less severe than bipolar 1. Bipolar ii is usually free of the hillucinations etc... However is still very serious and needs to be treated appropriately.
I hope your family stays strong through all your struggles, with the right support and theropy/meds and the love of her family your sister should do well in learning to manage the illness...
