Is your helping encouraging? All of your “helping” should encourage your adult child to do better and become more independent. It shouldn’t be so controlling that it takes away the incentive for your adult child to try or that it sends the message that he/she is incapable of handling his/her own life. Helping someone to help themselves is the goal. All of us learn best when we are in control of our choices and directly experience the consequences of them.
Why do we put our mothers and fathers in the position of having to try to defend themselves after they are too old to do so? Are we so careless that we do not take the time to check out the home in which they will be living? Regardless of the sense it may make when it comes to the money received by the homes for caring for the mentally ill, our elderly have the right to live in a safe environment free of fear.
In order to improve yourself, you first have to accept humility. If you are arrogant and think that you know everything already, you will never learn and develop into a better person.

The manic depressive bipolar personality is vivacious, beautiful or handsome, energetic, and you feel like you won the instant lottery when it comes to relationship. They are very thoughtful, bring you wonderful presents and you’re sure they are the masters at thoughtfulness. This is all the upside–the manic side.
I do not claim disability income, although I could. I work like a regular fellow earning all the income I receive. Why do I not claim disability income? Because I want to work for my money because I can. I am not saying that you should refuse disability. If you are feeling really depressed, as this disorder will do that to you, then maybe for a while you should go on disability. But, only go on it if you have to. Try to get better. You can get better with the right help. I would suggest to find a psychiatrist if you have not already and work your problems out with him or her.
