I think there is definately a connection (IMO) thats why i chose the name i did for our forum, there are many 'different shades' all in the same family Wink

Yes i couldnt agree more Grandma, all the signs are there! and when the wig wearer was Ts age he showed same behaviours he informed me.

With T its in both sides of the family so he didnt stand a chance and no wonder T has the problems he has. In this day & age its more recognised (no way near enough) but more knowledge has been gained.

This information scares me as I recently had a coversation with my Dr about if/when I have children would I pass this onto them, she said my children would have a raised chance of developing mental problems/illness. I tried so hard to keep my very sad emotions to myself as no mother wants to think they can be the cause of suffering to there child. As both my Nan and mother had/have depression this was probably the cause of my bi-polar, which to be very frank and honest brought out a bit of anger that my mother has caused this. ( I love my mum so this made me feel worse for feeling like this).
It makes me feel as if I should't have children at all as I would'nt wish this or any other disabilty on any one, even those I dislike. Crying

Bless ya cos I know that when you are well you have a lovely understanding of children because of your own experiences growing up. At least you have the information to then make an informative decision. xx

A's biological dad has bipolar and borderline personality disorder, I mentioned this to the paeds etc and I think notes were made, but didn;t show concern, I have been convinced that these conditions are linked and partly the reason A is A Smile
