I have not had to deal with a bi-polar teen, but have had to deal with other family members who suffer from this illness. I know how hard it can be. Hang in there. Hopefully the med's he is on are working well. Make sure he stays on them! I have delt with depression and anxiety most of my life. I am a completly diffrent person without my meds. It's horrible!
If you don't mind me asking. How did your son get diagnosed with depression at 6 years old. I worry about my 9 year old son. I have had him to a psych. Dr. but they do not seem too worried about him. They say he is sad because of my divorce from his Father and in time he will be better. I have been divorced about 3 years now. I worry about him.
Anyway, hang in there. It sounds like you have a very full plate. You will be in my prayers.
