Q. can any one tell me whether could a person with bipolar disorder, be a single parent? I am unmarried. I had a lot of dreams in my family life but my husband expired the next month soon after our marriage. I am not pregnant too. I don’t want to remarry because I am recently diagnosed as bipolar. I don’t know whether my suffering will spoil my partner’s happiness if I marry. So I like to live alone and to give life to an orphanage child. So can any one tell me whether could a person with bipolar disorder, be a single parent?

A. Okay here is what I think. Bipolar disorder effects everyone in the family. It is important that you find someone to share your life with if that is what you want out of life. There are many of us out there that are patient and caring, it is an issue of being honest and waiting for the right person. If you are being treated and are stable I dont think it would be a problem addopting a child. Be honest and things will work out. Continue your treatments and stay on top of your illness and you can have everything in your life that you desire. When it is ment to be it will be. Be patient, show the agency that you are stable and are being treated for the illness. You are fully capable of giving a child a great life. Good luck!
