Bipolar BM is Spiraling... What Do I Do?
For those who haven't heard my story, BM is not very involved... My husband has full custody and BM has visitation in the summer for a month or so. She doesn't see SD much because she's never cared to be overly involved. We now live in another province after buying a house and moving away (with her blessing).
The past month or so, BM has gotten very.... lovey with me?? She messages me saying she's so happy I'm raising her daughter, she's so glad I'm in her life, etc. and I just kind of respond politely and tell her I'm glad she's in my life too. Whatever. We've always been civil, so it's not a big deal I guess.
SD loves that we get along so I try my best. But she is bipolar, and over the past few days, I've noticed it seems like she's in a very strange, almost scary state of mind. Aside from telling me she really, really loves me (more than my husband does she said!), she's showing a lot of guilt over not being involved with her daughter.
She went from making comments about feeling bad for not being involved to talking about crazy conspiracies (she apparently doesn't post pictures of her daughter on FB because the FBI/CIA may "lock SD up" for lies???) and all sorts of strange things. I'm keeping the conversation going with her because I don't know what else to do.
DH says she's always been bipolar but I've never seen her like this. EVER. I think something is very wrong. But I also don't want to break the trust we have between eachother and set things off for SD's sake. Like I said, she loves us getting along. I am thinking of reaching out to BM's mother and letting her know of the strange behaviour.
Is that too far? Should I just drop it? I'm a bit freaked out and want to make sure she is ok and doesn't hurt herself or someone else.
