Life with Q

Parenting a young adult with emerging bipolar disorder during the pandemic is no picnic. I mean, right?

Q is having a bad health day.

Got him to take his vitamin D and hemp oil, with his nutritional shake ( #ashwagandaisourfriend )

Feeling Lots of pressure to go with a traditional medicine approach. PRX. Doctors. Invasive procedures.

Instead we are doing

  • Nutritional shakes
  • Herbs
  • Whole foods
  • Aroma therapy
  • Lots of walks
  • animal therapy
  • Volunteering
  • 12 steps
  • Prayer
  • Fasting
  • Light therapy

He feels like crud a lot of times. But then I’ve seen mentally ill folks feel worse with a more western medicine approach!

I wish I didn’t have to watch him suffer,


I don’t want an easy life for my kids–I want them to be people of character, right?
