My Daughter is 20 years old and diagnosed Bipolar when she was 9 years old. At age 16 she decided not to take her meds anymore by palming them and throwing them away. By 17 she was pregnant and wanting to leave home. I forced her to stay until she graduated. Having graduated before baby was born she moved out at 18 to be with the father. She is now the mother of the most wonderful 2 year old girl. Things went very well the first year. I was very proud of her and the situation she made work. Bothe her and the father did very well with their new responsibilty. The father is still present but the relationship is extremely volitol. The two are constantly fighting and without medication my daughter has made many decisions that have indirectly resulted in an unsafe envirnment for the baby. I am very concerned about the well being of both my daughter and granddaughter during these times (which have gone from monthly to almost daily now). Is there anyway that I can gain guardinship of my daughter in order to get her back on medication and into couseling? Without the ability to make good, rashinal decisions in moments of extreme anger I fear my daughter will do something that will result in physical or phsycilogical harm to herself, her daughter or both. Example: Yesterday they were fighting, they both took off after one another and left the baby on the porch by herself. I was called by one of the neighbors. I am thankful it was me, not the police. Only gone about 15 minutes but that is more than enough time for something to happen. She very much wants to be in control of her own life and to be a very good parent to her daughter. But the anger issues involve with her relationship are causing poor decison making. She has never been angry with the baby just the father, but who knows, that could excalted into more. I am confident that meds and counseling will not only calm her down but make her realize her insistance to stay in this relationship will be fruitless. She has resulted in smoking pot to gain control of her emotions rather than resuming any kind of medication from the doctor. I have studied a lot on bipolar and am quite aware that this is typical behavior and it can escalate from there. I need help fast things are getting worse by the minute.
