My dad has very highs and very lows. u dont know how to approach him. whether hes in a great mood or in a bad non talkative mood. there complete opposite moods. and i have noticed sumtimes good moods will stay at a very high level 4 3 or 4 days. then drop off to very low bad moods. hes a very angry person as well and agressive. is this bipolar?
these can be symtoms of bipolar this disorder runs in my family i am not effected by it but my sister is and she is on sever medications and often quits taking meds during manic stated that are the highs thinking she is cured he needed help from doctor to manage the high low states of his mood and if he is aggressive he may well become violent so be carefull
It could indeed be bipolar. I guess your Dad needs to choose to go seek help. It is like walking on egg shells around someone who is mentally ill and is not on meds. Just do your best, and check out the NAMI website, that's the national alliance on mental illnes. That may help you.
