Bi-polar Disorder Needs Special & Philosophy Psychology
I work with several children who have bi-polar and it can get really rough. One of our girls, in particular, has real problems because of it. She uses that as an excuse to do what she knows it wrong. The other day, we were told she had a great day at school, but when she got to our daycare, she was suddenly out of control with her temper. The next day, she apparently ran off during school, and had a wonderful afternoon with us. It's sad how quickly moods can switch and change, and it's definately a hard thing to work with. I don't have it, so my knowledge of it only comes from being around people who have it. Seeing how hard it is for us to deal with it as a staff, I can't even imagine what it's like to deal with that inside of yourself.
One way we always manage to get her under control and where she'll listen to us is if we give her something productive to do. Maybe you could try finding a new hobby and something you have to work at to keep your mind focused on a new goal.
