Q. Shall I allow her to continue as she feels good as she is trying to shed some pounds too? My wife is pregnant and in second trimester. She is 26. Before the start of pregnancy she was weighing 132 pounds. Now she weighs 150 pounds. She feels her to be overweight and want to exercise. She feels good with her pounding weight when she does some long walking. This too makes her tired for the next day`s work. Though I have suggested to stop long walking she still continues with it. She says that her friends were also benefitted with walking and had healthy baby. Shall I allow her to continue as she feels good as she is trying to shed some pounds too?

A. I am not sure how they trigger the manic episodes as I have not gone through any research indicating any clear reasons to me. But I am sure on the lines of personal experiences with my bipolar daughter that they do trigger her episodes. Especially when she is short of sleep her manic episodes starts. Medicines help her keep calm and to get good sleep. I feel that your son didn’t get the required amount of sleep due to his vacations or would have stressed himself on a high scale. His medicines were also not benefitting him…may be he could have missed on his medicines. Just take care of him and help him avoid all triggers.
