Patient discussion about briefs

Q. my son who is risking his life by being a bipolar. could any of you brief me about this dangerous episode? Life with bipolar for my son is like a happy go unlucky situation. The manic episode he gets is very dangerous and could cause him a severe physical injury. He gets regular episodes without any gap. During episodes he jumps with happiness and he can also jump from his room`s balcony, which is on the second floor. Once he was hospitalized close to 2 months for this act. When he became well and was brought back to home, he tried again with that silly act due to his bipolar happiness and so we have shifted him to ground floor and no one knows what else is left to be seen. How can he make such a silly and risky act? We never saw these episodes before though he is diagnosed as bipolar 3 years back. This is really dangerous …..I tend to cry but also feel for my son who is risking his life by being a bipolar. Could any of you brief me about this dangerous episode?

A. Your son seems to be experiencing continued manic episodes. When someone who has bipolar disorder has a manic episode one of the symptoms is risk taking. he believes the he can not be harmed by his actions. Even if he was already harmed by doing the same thing before. In his mind he is untouchable. Is your son medicated? I would say to take him to the doctor ask for a referal to a psychiatrist and get him started on treatments. The best way you can help him is to ensure that he gets the professional help that he needs and to ensure he is diligent in taking his medications. If he is on medications already I would take him back to the doctor because they are not working. If he continues in a manic episode those risks could become more and more dangerous for him. With every risk he takes that doesnt hurt him or get him in trouble th more dangerous risks he will start taking. i wish you the best in this situation and the best way to help him is to get him professionals to help h
