This can cause you to have increased stress and you can lose your sleep. This may increase the tiredness. Check if you are taking your medicines in right time. This can also be due to your stress.

Q. My son who is a bipolar trying to follow his dad. what else we can do to make him have positive mind set? My son who is a bipolar is 12 years old. He cries inside a locked room and is not acting to his age. He refuses to give any reasons for his behavior. He is emotional that he cries aloud while watching movies. During his episodes his behavior turns to a very negative and uncontrolled state. I get frustrated but my husband has no problem with his behavior and he keeps a very good patience on any of his odd behavior. Of late I have found that this has increased his positive thinking and he tries to follow his dad. What else we can do to make him have positive mind set?
