I went through this with my first child. It wasnt a distance thing from my child. It was a major hormonal mental issue. The hospital was right on top of it. I was in the hospital for a couple weeks. But what they didnt tell me is when you have bipolar an anti depressant will make you worse, sent me into psychosis. It was horrible. I would never wish anyone to end up like I was. I was really bad until I had the right Dr put me on the right medication. I didnt have much understanding support. I had one friend who understood. But it didnt happen again and I am glad to have my fiance for support.
