Does anyone know
My SO often tells me that his children's BM is "Crazy". I thought for a long time he was joking, but recently he told me that she suffers from cronic depression and refuses to seek help. He aslo tells me that her mother and grandmother have diagnoised mental health problems and have been on meds most of their life( grandmother ended up in a home and is now deceased). Is it possible for us to get a court order to have her evaluated.
She seems bipolar to me. Everything I've read about it sounds just like her. The "highs" and "lows" she displays are severe and often times when things happen in her life she calls crying saying she is too depressed to handle the kids and needs BF and I to keep them for her. She has trouble holding down a job and has often 'flown off the handle" over minor things.
She also has a history of alcohol abuse . In fact only a year or so ago she was in AA classes for a short time. Just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation?
